52 CCT Technique Challenge


Over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week our technique challenge hosted by Fabiola is to make a Christmas card with real stitching incorporated in some way. How exciting!

 
I love stitching in all its many forms. For my DT card, I used an Amy Tangerine Accent Embroidery Stencil Kit (the Hello one). This comes with a little mat, a piercing tool and four stencils with a total of twelve designs. I then used two strands of embroidery thread in beige, green and pink to stitch the design on my card. I then added the sentiment, some gold spatters, stars and sequins.
 
I hope that you will feel inspired by the DT's sewn festive creations and share your cards with us. Happy stitching! April x
 
I would also like to enter my card in the challenge over at Quirky Crafts - Sewn with Love.
