I'm finally getting around to uploading some older cards that I posted on my blog--sorry for the delay! Here's what I posted about this one at the time:
It's Blog Hop time at Papertrey Ink! *The challenge is to use embroidery thread in an innovative way. *I'm not sure how innovative my entry is, since crochet has been around for probably hundreds of years, but when I read the challenge, this is what immediately came to mind. The little holes around the perimeter of the card stock were punched with a needle, using a ruler as a guide (note to self--get one of those paper piercing thingys!). *The crocheting was done with a very fine crochet hook (I think it was a 9) and a single strand of pink embroidery thread. *Single crochet followed by 4 chain stitches in each hole. *You can easily see that my crochet skills leave something to be desired, but stand back far enough and it looks okay. *The doily was created from white coated laser printer stock. *The rest of the supplies used were as follows:
Card Stock: *PTI Stamper's Select White, SU Regal Rose, SU Rose Red.
Ink: *Copics (R83, R85, R89, colorless blender), Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Pretty In Pink Craft.
Stamps: *PTI Quilter's Sampler
Dies: *Spellbinder's Lotus Pendants, Tim Holtz Brackets
