Rudolph In Stitches
Topic: Paper Embroidery

Next swap card ready... assignment: reindeer.

I had some 12x12 printed cardstock that I picked up a few years ago and cut it up into pieces suitable for card fronts. I chose one with a deer in a circle element with other decorative patterns in the background.

Since the requirement was to include paper embroidery, I pulled out the circle frame I've used several times and arranged it to lay along the left border of the feature circle. I pricked it into the cardstock and then free-handed a few extra scrolls.

The swirls of this mimic the big bow on the reindeer's neck and the color echoes a portion of the plaid.

I mounted the piece on a bordering burgundy then on a dusky green card base.


I used a rubon for the text and added a sticky-back red pearl to decorate the nose. Hello Rudolph!
