Cross Stitched Hello

Hi Everyone!

So sorry I didn’t post more last week! I was very busy last week crafting and creating so that I will have things to share with you! This week I have several cards featuring cross stitched backgrounds. I have been inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s stitching on cards for a long time now. This was the perfect way for me to pass time in the car last week during our very long road trip to and from Colorado

 The trickiest part of these were punching the holes for the stitches. I have since come to my senses and ordered the Altenew Cross stitch die cut! Can’t wait to get it and make even more backgrounds.
For this card, I chose orange, turquoise and purple for my background colors. I die cut the “hello” which is from Hero Arts several times from white card stock and then stamped one of them with the coordinating stamp using my MISTI tool to line it up just right. I stacked all the die cuts for some dimension and then layered a coat of glossy accents.

The sentiment below is from Altenew “you are” set. This is a set I often forget about; but have recently rediscovered it and hope to use it even more in the future.
I hope you enjoy the card and I hope it inspires you to create your own stitched backgrounds. Have a great day and I’ll be back soon!
