Topic: Paper Embroidery
A swap back in September called for a paper embroidery card with a 'harvest' theme.
I had a large square sticker with a branch and apples that I wanted to use. I chose a diagonal plaid cardstock and a pattern of a border cross stitch.
I stitched up the pattern with green and dark yellow threads that go with both the background and the illustration colors.
When it was time to use the illustration in the center I decided it would look better to trim away the border and background from the sticker and just use the apples, flowers and leaves.
I added a thin bordering red and mounted it all on a cream colored base card.
