First up – a needle crafts-themed card – with a punny sentiment.
I cut the letters and adhered them to the Cross Stitch dry-embossed background within the Embroidery Hoop. I added a heart cut with Little Bits – Buttons (to represent the word “love”) and a needle cut with Little Bits – Needle & Thread. I added thread to the button and to the needle and adhered the frame to a background, which I had been dry-embossed with the Cable Knit embossing folder.
Supplies for the Needle Crafts Card:
For my second project, I created a scrapbook layout for which I used the Mini Caps Alpha & #’s to create a title and embellishment.
I was a scrapbooker before I was a cardmaker, and my layouts have, for the most part, been light on embellishments, allowing the journaling and photos to do the heavy lifting. For this layout, chronicling a special trip my husband and son took this past summer, I created the “GO” embellishment by adhering letters cut with the Mini Caps Alpha & #’s set on to a circle, which I had cut with one of the dies in the Stitched Circle Stacklets set. I also die cut the letters for the title, adhering them on to the journaling card, which I cut with a die in the Stitched Square Stacklets set. I printed the date onto cardstock with my computer printer and cut it with the Tab Edger die.
It’s great to be able to personalize a scrapbook page with coordinated embellishments and title without buying any additional supplies!
