My Time to Craft DT Challenge #329 Stitching (real or faux.)

Hello! I hope you're all having a good weekend! My daughter is over from Dublin for a flying visit, and to get a solid night's sleep! Baby Oscar is being looked after by his Dad and Grandparents: as my daughter said, Oscar loves anyone who gives him food and cuddles! I can't wait until he comes to visit us in October!

In the meantime, cardmaking keeps me going! And today at My Time to Craft we have a new Challenge: Stitching (real or faux)

Hooray, it's another Christmas card lol! This is made with an old stamp from Imagination Crafts. I stamped it twice and silver-embossed it, then cut out one of the snowflakes. I coloured the background with Distress Inks (Salty Ocean and Broken China) then added the extra snowflake on top with foam. The gem in the centre is from stash.

I matted everything on silver and then blue card. The blue square mat is cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Die (that's the first bit of faux stitching) and the background paper has more faux stitching made with a Distress Marker in Mermaid Lagoon. Simples!

Have a look at my teamies' inspiring work on the blog, then have a go yourself!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
