I can't believe that it has almost been a week since I posted. Time is just flying too fast for me.
I tried something new today. I was trying to do yesterday's Technique Lover's challenge on SCS, which was the dahlia fold. But, I cannot get those circles to fold nicely. I must be the only one who can't make these. There were so many nice cards made with this technique. Anyway, on the site where the instruction for the dahlia fold are, I came across paper embroidery and in peeked my curiosity. So I took a look, and this is what I found, and I just HAD to try it. When I was a kid I made the nail and thread art and really enjoyed it. This is basically the same technique, only you use needle and thread instead of hammer and nails. It's not a card I will make often, but I will probably try it again, with a different design sometime.
I embroidered the flower onto vellum paper, which I glued onto Almost Amethyst DP. The thread is from my existing stash of DMC yarn from my cross-stitching hobby. So, no stamping involved in today's card.
Thank you for dropping by. Hope you are having a wonderful day!
