Topic: Paper Embroidery
I got new swap assignments for the new year so I set about selecting patterns for them, choosing cardstock to stitch on and filing them in monthly order to work on.
I got the first three done in pretty good order.
The first of these is for a swap called Winter Sports. I chose a pattern with an ice skating snowman.
The cardstock has cute banners hanging at the top and it makes it look like he/she is on a rink.
I chose threads to go with the banner colors, using various pinks. The blades of the skates are silver metallic thread.
I added three word stickers (colored with pink marker), added tiny button brads and mounted it on cardstock with a shiny silver border showing.
