Here is my first project inspiration for the November "A Blog Named Hero" Challenge of "muted colors." This project may look familiar because the background is a leftover piece from an earlier card. Always save those scraps! This was simple to make and quicker than most. The stitching to me is quicker than coloring and easily mass-produced on the go! The supplies are listed below. For the full tutorial, please visit my youtube link also below (and I hope you'll consider subscribing!)
I die cut the scrap from a rounded rectangle infinity die, but my tape wasn't secure and the paper shifted. So, never throwing anything out (Never give up! Never surrender!) I just recut to straighten out, but it does leave an odd size compared to the rest. Oh well, our secret!
Next, I die cut the stitched tree in the center and stitched with hand-dyed muted green embroidery floss. I added a garland of red floss with gold glass seed beads. Next I added a star brad and cut a square of corrugated cardboard for trunk.
I layered this with the muted red & green paper on top of the Neenah Desert Storm top fold card base.
Hope you will give this a try! I will be back very soon!
