Papertrey Ink: March 2011 Blog Hop

Friday, March 25, 2011

Hello!  Here's my card for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  I'm so glad that they now have their blog hops all day long.  I always forget about it until it's too late.  This way I was able to make a card the day of and play along.  This month's challenge was to use embroidery floss on your card in a new way.  I use embroidery floss all the time on my cards, but I wanted to do something different.  This idea actually came to me while I was running on treadmill this afternoon (4 miles, go me!).  

I pulled the colors for the thread and ink from the patterned paper.  To create the "stars" I punched circles in three different sizes.  I used a pencil to first draw a "t" and then an "x" across the circles.  I laid them out on my card and used a paper piercer to pierce the center of the circle and then just outside the lines I created with the pencils.  I removed the circle templates and threaded the floss.  Easy peasy!
I added clear gems for a little added sparkle.  


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I can's wait to start hopping and see everyone's creations with floss. Have a great weekend!!!


Have a great day!

Four miles, yes, way to go! I have a lot of friends who say they're the best thing! And this is so pretty, like the use of the patterned paper for your color inspiration!

This is a fun card, Dana. The colorful stars work great with the sentiment. Can you believe that I'm still making the rounds of the blog hop?!

Cute card! Like the stitching and how you pulled the colors from the PP to match it.
