Hello friends! I absolutely love Spellbinder's Stitching Die of the Month, Grand Stitched Blooms! Appropriately named! Those flowers are big and beautiful and I love that there are various ways to configure them.
The November "New Subscriber" registration window will be available November 6 - 27th while supplies last.
The large flower was cut from plum card stock and the smaller one from red. Both stems were cut from light grey and the leaves from dark grey.
The tips of the leaves and the petals were lightly rolled onto a Versamark ink pad, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and melted with the heat tool.
The stitching was completed with black embroidery floss that was divided in half. In preparation for assembly, all of the stitched die cuts were dotted with Tombow adhesive. The adhesive was applied and left to dry until it was in its tacky state. I find using Tombow adhesive in this manner does a couple of things. It ensures the stitching is secure and it allows the element to lay pretty snug to whatever it is adhered to.
Black card stock was embossed with the Christmas Wrap Embossing Folder and adhered to an A2 sized, black card base.
After the flowers were assembled, they were adhered to the card base.
The sentiment dies from Everyday Sentiments was cut from plum, red and black sheet foam. The red die cuts were adhered to the foam ones. The bottom half of the plum die cuts were embossed in gold and adhered, offset, to the foam backed die cuts.
The card was embellished with matte gold pearls
