Going Green......

This week at Tiddly Inks we are celebrating St Patricks day in green. The card I have made is all Irish - 4 leaf clover, fae red head fairy and of course good luck! This is my first attempt at hand stitching on a card and the luck of the irish was with me and I think it came out pretty well. I pierced the design I wanted to stitch into the kraft card stock with a needle and then using silk thread straight stitched. Once I had straight stitched around the border and clover leaves I cut out the centre of each clover to let the patterned paper show through. The image of course is one of Christy's from Tiddly Inks - a fae fairy. Check out the rest of the design teams cards here.
