Well, not really! But it is time for another of Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenges! This week, the challenge is to use stitching somewhere on your card.
Funny, I actually had a card prepared using hand-stitching and a bazzill template, but realized it fit next week's challenge more suitably, you'll see what I mean next week, so I created another, this time with machine stitching.
Do you stitch on your cards? I do it often now that I have found a spot for my machine to "live" out in the open. Because it isn't a chore to pull out and get going, I find I use it all the time and I love the effect!
I have used sketch 23 from The OCC weekly sketch challenge for my card. And I think I'm even on time to enter! Thanks Danderella for the idea!
I look forward to seeing what kind of stitching you will use on your Christmas/Winter card this week!
p.s. Have you stopped by Sparkle Creations yet? The store is officially open. I have ordered Lantern Rin and cannot wait for her to arrive!
What I used:
stamps: a really old one from my stash that had NEVER seen ink!
embellishments: Kaiser craft bling as well as bling I won in a blog candy from Stacy over at The Scrapbooking cottage!, SU felt snowflakes (I've been hoarding!), misc ribbon
