Default newbie-faux stitching?

Hi, I saw a great card in the Best of Cluck where they did "faux stitching". I am going to take a guess at how this was done and say: draw a line with a white gel pen and then (somehow) poke holes through the lines at stitching intervals??

Am I close? If not, enlighten me! I haven't gotten to a workshop yet.

You're close - just got the order wrong.
First, poke the holes. I use my paper piercer and my template that comes with the SU! matpack - but you can use anything that pokes through paper and a ruler to get them even (the matpack is easier though ). Make sure you have something underneath (like a mousepad) or you'll poke holes in your table ...
Then - use a white gel pen to draw a line, going from hole to hole. Since I never stitch perfectly straight, I don't worry if my faux stitching is a little ziggy sometimes!
