Today sees the beginning of a new game at AAA Cards and we'd like to see some stitching on your cards. Now this can be real thread hand or machine stitching or the die cut type or the hand drawn or stamped faux stitching or any other kind of stitching that I've forgotten about.
I decided to go for some machine stitching to attach a vellum circle onto my card and used stamps from Uniko our wonderful sponsor for this game.
But I'm getting ahead of myself as the stitching was actually the last thing that happened on my card. I stamped the flowers and BIRTHDAY sentiment onto the card base first, then stamped and heat embossed the HAPPY onto a piece of vellum. The vellum was die cut into a stitched sircle shape and then attached with the stitching.
Stitching is a great way to attach vellum as it's meant to show and I've yet to find a glue that really doesn't show through vellum at all.
Stamps: Uniko, All Occasion Sentiments #2, Flower Power #4
Inks: Ranger distress, picked raspberry, mustard seed; Memento, tuxedo black; Versamark
Embossing: Crafty Impressions, black rainbow sparkle
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched circle stax
Ther are lots of inspiring ways to add stitching to your card over at AAA Cards and, as well as the talented Eunji joining us as Guest Designer, our sponsor Bev from Uniko is also playing along. Go check them all out!
Huge thanks for visiting my blog today, I'm always thrilled that people take the time. And keep crafting!
