PTI Blog Hop!
Welcome to the March PTI blog hop! Here was the challenge: to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on your project. This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up!
So, I used the notecard cut from the Paisley cricut cartridge (similar to the lunchbox die which I love!) in New Leaf cut at 3". Pulled out TT: Birthday and stamped the balloons and the squiggle image on the back on the card. I *love* the little snail image for girls from the same cartridge so I pulled out Lemon Tart, Blueberry Sky, Hibiscus Burst, and Sweet Blush cardstock for all the layers. I used embroidery floss that matched SB over that same colored cardstock and stitched over it multiple times adding the perfect texture to the little snail bringing bday wishes to a lucky little girl.
Took the "happy bday" sentiment also from TT: B and stamped on the snail. When the birthday rolls around my daughter will finish out the inside for her little friend.
Thanks for the challenge! We had a blast!
