Hello everyone! I love the beginning of the new month! Why? It is time to reveal Spellbinder's new Clubs of the Month, of course! The Stitching Die of the Month, Stitched Floral Cardfront, is absolutely gorgeous! So think ahead ... as summer will soon give way to Autumn and Winter, stitching is a relaxing way to spend your evenings. Well for me, it is becoming any time of the year!
The August "New Subscriber" registration window will be available August 6 - 27th while supplies last.
Stitched Floral Cardfront consists of a cover plate die and dies for the individual flowers and leaves and the sentiment. The cover plate die was used to cut soft, pink card stock.
The flowers were cut from two shades of pink card stock that was darker than the background and the leaves from mint green.
I use scotch tape to begin and end the stitching to hold the floss securely.
The background was stitched with soft metallic pink to detail the top and bottom of the panel and everything else was done in metallic mint green.
The flowers and leaves were stitched through a central hole with the thread wrapped around the scalloped edges. The flowers were stitched in same pink and green for the leaves that were used on the background.
The background was adhered to a dark pink card stock panel measuring 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". When adhering any elements that are stitched, I like to use Tombow adhesive. I apply a thin layer making sure to catch all the stitching and set it aside to dry completely. When this adhesive dries, it is tacky. The stickiness makes it easy to adhere and flatten the stitched elements.
The background panel was adhered to an A2 sized, top folding card base.
The stitched flowers and leaves were adhered using Tombow adhesive. I placed a weight over the panel for a while to ensure everything was secure.
The sentiment die was cut four times from pink card stock and stacked.
Half pearls were used to embellish the card.
