Topic: Paper Embroidery
The pattern I chose for a Valentine swap is one that fascinates me. A simple circle of evenly spaced holes is turned into a heart by stitching two layers with different combinations of using the holes in singles and pairs.
Hard to describe but effective when executed.
I stitched with red thread over a chocolate brown paper printed with music notes.
I trimmed this and added it to a cardstock printed with lace. To this main layer I added a thin satin ribbon at each end and then a red heart ribbon just inside this.
I used a grey base card that matched that in the lace layer.
