Grater Floral and Paper Embroidery!


This week's challenge at The Rubber Cafe is to add a touch of sewing on your card! I use a lot of faux stitching on my cards...so I decided to change it up and add some hand stitching to my card this week...paper embroidery!

I LOVE the vintage floral images that were released last summer...this grater is so fun....I just may have to find me a real one and do this when my flowers start to bloom!

I stamped and colored the Grater Floral image with Copic Markers and then doodled a frame around it. I love the font of the Vertical Happy Birthday sentiment. Paper is by Heidi Grace.

My only embellishment on this card is the Martha Stewart punched border which I hand stitched with to strands of embroidery floss. I finished the flowers with an adhesive pearl...so very soft and feminine! Bring on SPRING!!!

We hope you join us in the stitching challenge! You can add real stitching, machine or by hand....or even faux if you'd rather! Some lucky participant will sew up a dandy prize!! It should be YOU!! Enter your creation HERE!
