A Tree in Stitches

I was challenged to add some stitches to my card. So, I grabbed a needle and thread. This was the result. What do you think? 

   Festive Season
   Sheltering Tree
   Teeny Tiny Wishes
   Itty Bitty Backgrounds

   Brocade Blue A-2, 4-1/2 x 3-1/4, Scraps
   Night of Navy 5-1/4 x 4
   Rose Red DSP 4-3/4 x 3-1/2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Night of Navy
   Brocade Blue

   Die Cutting
   Stitching (Sewing)

   Festive Stitching Thinlits Dies
   Word Window Punch

To begin, I stamped and sewed on the 4-1/2 x 3-1/4 piece of Brocade Blue. I used 3 strands of x-stitch thread that I had in my stash for the sewing. 

First, I stamped the tree, ground cover, and snow. I used both Night of Navy and Brocade Blue for the snowfall. 

I then used the Festive Stitching Thinlits Dies to make the sewing holes on the tree frame. I added the thread keeping all of the mess on the back of the card and the pretty stitching in the front.

Next, I adhered all of the layers as shown above.

Lastly, I stamped and attached the sentiment using dimensionals, and added the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. Great stitching you added to this tree. I think I have some of that paper in my stash of paper my former homeowner left me when we bought our house. It is one of my favorite papers to use.

    1. How exciting to get some oldies, but goodies for free! Amazing that your former homeowner was into crafting too. Thank you for dropping by and taking a peek. Stay Healthy!

  2. I like the detail of stitching on the tree. I could never do that as it requires patience, that I don't have, to do this kind of thing.

    1. I think you might surprise yourself. I do not sew. When I was younger, I played with cross-stitching, so I had quite a few threads left. Yup, I surprised myself too. Thanks for stopping by here, Fonda. It means a lot!
