Today's Ways To Use It Challenge is to use stitching, not an area of expertise for me, but I gave it a whirl! I had this new silhouette stamp set from Inkadinkado that I thought would look cool on the doily so I stamped it in Versafine Onyx onto the doily. I ran this through my Xyron and adhered it to my black base. I laid a piece of K&Co SMASH tape along the base of the doily half. I embossed my sentiment, but my poor Vanilla Craft ink is in sore need of reinking so it turned out a bit spotty. I adhered the center of my card front to a Very Vanilla base and doodle stitched it into place.

That's the beautyu of hand crafted cards! You can make a mistake and it still looks like it was meant to be that way. I love the white stitching on the black paper and the stamping on the doily is so creative! Love it!
