Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

Three Square Stitched Floral Birthday

 Hello! I took a sabbatical from making cards due to having some home remodeling and landscaping done. But I'm back with this stitched floral birthday card. I love the new stitching dies. My hands and fingers got a good workout in creating the flowers on this card.

I began with die cutting the 3 squares panel in white card stock and mounting it on its zigzag counterpart with dimensional tape. This was then adhered to a green layer and then to a white card base. I put this aside to work on the die cut images.

The floral images were die cut in white card stock and then stitched with yellow embroidery floss for the petals and brown floss for the centers. The leaf branches were die cut in green card stock and the dragonfly was created using green card stock and green vellum. All images were adhered to the 3 square panel with dimensionals or adhesive.  The birthday greeting was computer generated.

Here are the materials used in creating this card:

Card Stock:  GKD White, SU Garden Green, Vellum

Dies:  Marianne Design Slim Line 3 Square Die Set, Spellbinders Stitched Flower Die Set, IO Dragon Flies Die Set.

Other: yellow and green embroidery thread, adhesive, dimensional tape and/or dimensionals


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this post and will drop by again.
