The new "Dotty for You" papers from Close to My Heart are so cute and springy, I couldn't resist pairing my card with my pretty hydrangas and cute little chick. Check out the card's I created using Mojo Monday's sketch, while also incorporating some stitching for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge.CTMH's baker's twine and then mounting them on a neutral "dotty" B&T.
Heart 2 Heart Challenge was to incorporate stitching. I love the detail stitching adds to a project, but usually overlook it because of the simplicity of using glue. I am much more likely to create stitching lines with a pen, stamp a stitched line using the "Sew Happy" stamp set or sand an embossed line and puncture holes onto it to create a faux stitched line. This week I decided to using baker's twine to stitch a banner together. By poking holes in top corner of each banner I was able to string or "stitch" the banner togeter. It was super easy and quick, because all I had to do was attatch the two ends of the twine to the back of the the grey dotty paper. The banner hangs nicely on the card and even has some movement. No glue on the paper also enables you to see the inside of the banners for even more color. I really liked how it turned out.
