Doesn’t it look real? That zig-zag stitch? That’s one thing I don’t do. Stitch on cards for real. Any stitching you see on my cards will be Faux Stitching. A long time ago I bought these Technique Tuesday stitches and truth be told I have never really used them. They were too short and then I found this, recently. http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/the-10291/Fiskars-STAMPING-PRESS-Stamp/Detail Oh yeah, that makes “stitching” really easy. Line it up with the grids and press away.
Using Amuse back ground paper and MFT Blueprints 4 this card came together nicely. All the die cut pieces are from that set. I used a plastic banner stencil on the scalloped piece of Coredinations to give a little fun to the strip. Then ran the vanilla cardstock through with a tiny dots stencil. Lots of interest going on in this card that makes me love it.
