Karins Creations Card Stitching Card by Sharon Blaxter

 Use a piece of white cardstock cut to 13cm x 13cm

Photocopy the original stitching pattern by Karin's Creations KC031 and attach to the cardstock face up with removable tape

With an ultra fine pricking tool and a pricking mat prick out the entire pattern

Complete the stitching in stem stitch as indicated on the pattern using an embroidery needle with your thread of choice.

Adhere the thread to the back of the card with sticky tape when starting and finishing off.

Using a Cuttlebug or other die-cutting machine cut and emboss two Marianne Creatables Die LRO131 leaves in white cardstock and then lightly stamp to add colour.

Hint.....I use a gentle up and down with the stamp pad a few times to give the effect I have used.

                  I cut off one of the leaves to fit into the area.

Arrange the leaves onto the design and when you are happy with the placement apply Zig 2 Way Glue to the leaves and adhere to the card.

Using the Marianne Designs Flower Ribbon cut 3 of the flowers from the strip, then cut away the tulle as you don’t want it to show.

Adhere the flowers using Helmar Quick Dry Glue and then add a pearl inside each flower.

Attach the completed topper to Gold Glitter Card cut to 14cm x 14cm using double sided tape

Cut the base card to 15cm x 30cm and score at 15cm with a Bone Folder. Attach the Gold Glitter Card onto the purple card using double sided tape

When completed add Kars Purple Jewells to finish off.
