Sew Christmas

Before we know it Christmas is here so it is a good idea to get to work on those Christmas Cards.
For my Card I have played with needle and silver thread. As I like it the style is kept very simple without too much decor ;o)

I have used a Chevron stencil from Simon Says Stamp as a guide for my sewing pattern. Easy Peasy ;o)

I do though recommend doing the ink blending before making the holes for the needle work. But then you might not colour in the exact area you want. I actually did the ink blending after making the holes, which still worked OK. But the colour just intensified around the poked holes.

The sentiment is heat embossed with silver powder and the card front is mattet on silver card stock.

Addicted to Stamps and More - "Make your Mark" (used needle to mark pattern)

Have a great day.
