This week's card is for http://www.kraftygirls.com/2012/02/feelin-lucky-challenge-2.htmlrom and http://reasonableribbon.blogspot.com/search/label/challenges. I make a card using stitching with a St. Patricks day theme. This one was so much fun to do. I'll let you be the judge.
I love the two color theme on this card. So to begin with I cute a 3" square out of the top of the inner white card, ran it through my Sizzix and the small dots embossing folder. Then I cut 1/4" strips of my green to make the lattis work over the cut out. Then I replaced the square cut out over that on the back to make it really stand out. The back ground was sewn on using a machine blanket stitch.
You get a better look at the lattis work here. I really like this look.You also get a good look at the stitching. I cut the flower from two different dies, ran it through my small dots embossing folder and put a pearl in the center.
I ran a piece of scrappy ribbon across the bottom and placed the St. Patricks Day sentiment that our sponsor donated over the top at an angle. I think the card has a real classic look to it.
For the inside I used my Creative Memories stitch cutter to finish off the bottom and ran a 1/2 strip of white through it to give it that stitched look. The journaling box is just a white square. Must say, I love this card.
