Round and Round
Topic: Paper Embroidery
Yeah, it's another Christmas card - in paper embroidery. But very soon I will be caught up with these assignments and we can continue with other things for awhile.
On the other hand, the holidays WILL come in a few weeks time and more cards are still needed. Expect to see them here...
In the meantime, here is the latest. Since the assignment was very generic "make a PE Christmas card" I went with an iconic image, stitching a wreath.
This pattern was stitched in metallic gold and metallic green and then red beads were added for berries.
After it was stitched, I decided I wanted it to be cut into a circle. Well, those beads do not play nicely with the diecutter. I do have a 'B plate' thickness plate with a round aperture in it. It is designed to use with the Cuttlebug folders so only the outer area will make the impression, leaving a blank space in the middle. But I used it to surround the beads while using a scalloped circle die.
I mounted the resulting piece over a red cardstock, then over a green cardstock base.
I added the greeting with a rubon.
