Stamping time has been hit and miss lately. But I'm still trying to apply things I've learned from the Clean and Simple 4 Class.
At first when I saw Jennifer McGuire show us how much stitching adds texture to a card, I thought it was a technique I'd just as soon not pick up again. You see, stitching and I go way back to my sewing days, and then my cross stitch days. I haven't sewn anything but paper in a LONG time.
Know what changed my mind? The new light gold metallic thread that came in yesterday's order.
See how I added gold stitching to the leaves? Although a bit hard to work with it certainly does add texture! And shine, which makes me happy. The heat and dry embossing, plus the stitched frame continue to grow the theme.
I LOVE this sentiment about an old friend, and I know exactly the dear old friend I want to send this card to.
Playing with the great sketch too at Mojo Monday.
Thanks for visiting!
