Does anyone else feel that their weekends tend to be busy than weekdays! I was going to share some last minute Ramadan cards today, but that isn’t happening as I am still putting them together! So instead I am sharing some cards that I sent out yesterday with happy mail (yes I made it to the post office!)
Have you caught the stitching bug yet? I’ve been stitching since last summer, and I am OBSESSED! I take it with me everywhere, flights, road trips, lunch breaks, literally everywhere as I have a little pouch in my purse ALL THE TIME! But some how I never seem to finish them into cards, so that was the challenge to my self this weekend, and I think I’m happy with what I made!
Since the stitched background is itself a show stopper, I decided to keep the rest of the card relatively simple and use some sentiment dies to finish them off.
For the first card, I used the “get well soon” die from Pretty Pink Posh, I stacked them and added some glossy accents to add some dimension. I also added a cherry blossom die cut (to cover up the fact that I didn’t center the die cuts).
On the second card, I cut out the “hugs” word from the Hugs Shaker Die, stacked them too, this time ending with a glitter layer on the top. I had a colored fuchsia left over from a different card and added that to finish it off.
Do you stitch on your cards? If so please share your favorite die in the comments along with how you finish them into a card!
