Combining Two Crafts

Ever since I was little, I've done cross stitching.  Granted, I barely ever finish the projects I start (I think this is why I'm such a good card maker) because I always want to do something HUGE like a quilt.  Who knew that I could just add a little cross stitching onto a card as an embellishment?

I saw this idea in Paper Crafts Magazine.  A sample card in there showcased a little bit of cross stitching.  I thought to myself "hey, I can cross stitch!"  Then when the DTGD challenge came out for using stitching, I knew that this was my time.

I'm a little unhappy with this card.  I tried to use Laura's sketch for Caardvarks.  I just think it's too simple but I have no idea what I could add to make it any better.  I also tried distressing for the first time, I used a paper sander.  

Here's the basic recipe:
Stamps: Unity Cupcakes A'la Yummy
Paper: white, pink, dark pink CS, DP
Ink: Pixie Pink, Basic Black
Accessories: floss, brads, stickles, markers, paper sander, circle punch
Techniques: stitching
Difficulty (1-Easy 5-Advanced): 2


  1. well, you already had me at, "PINK CUPCAKE"...but the stitching...and all of the other fabulous little details...make this card even cooler! (if that's possible!) :) LOVE IT!

  2. I love your stitching. It's such a sweet addition.
