This is a close-up view to show details of stitching and the die-cut embellishments I cut out of fun foam and silver mirror foil cardstock.
All of the patterns that I have uploaded and color combinations have been my own. I have made 2 hand-stitched pieces that I made into cards that I copied the patterns, if I upload those, I will acknowledge my source.
This is card #10 of a very large set of approximately 50 hand-stitched cards that I made over an 18-month period, and I gave about 44 of the cards to my Mom, who is a master cross-stitcher. It was my goal to give to my Mom a set of assorted hand-stitched cards that she would hopefully really like and would want to give these cards to her crafting friends as well as to her other friends and family members, and I created at the time the best that I could create at the time, although I knew almost nothing about hand-stitching when I started the project except what I had observed my Mom doing when stitching, plus what I learned while watching a YouTube video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire on the basics of hand-stitching on cardstock using a stitching die.
I have recently started creating new hand-stitched cards after some time away with my sister, and after having surgery on a broken wrist and very demanding rehab which was a full time job for close to a year after an accidental fall. It feels very good to be back stitching and some limited card-making while I am doing some major reorganizing of my stamps and dies, plus a large purging of supplies, as my crafting space needs a complete overhaul. I look forward to crafting more when this is completed.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see this Close-up view of my hand-stitched card. When you leave a message for me, it brings me much joy and your comments always are encouraging to me. Thank you!!!
