Stitched Get Well Wishes (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  Today I’m sharing a card I created using Paper Smooches‘ new Stitched Circle die.  As a former cross-stitcher, I just love that this style is trending.

I pulled out my DMC thread and stitched a pink heart into the center then finished with white all around. After stitching, I decided to add a bit more color so I pulled out a few of my Copic markers and colored over the thread, creating an ombre look.  (Coloring the thread was WAY easier than transitioning with different shades of string.)

Copic markers – RV02, RV10, RV13, RV14

To assemble the card, I adhered patterned strips along the left and right sides of my base card. I adhered the horizontal strip of patterned paper to another block of white card stock trimmed slightly more narrow than the card front. I then die-cut the circular opening and stamped the sentiment (from Smooches stamp set) below. I adhered the panel to the card front using foam tape and adhered the stitched piece inside the circular opening.

Also available is a Stitched Square Die and a super cool Cross Stitch Die that only die-cuts the holes. So much fun.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon.
