Be Not Forgetful - Faux Stitching

click on image to enlarge
Yogi here using the faux stitching/quilting technique that Holly started our month off with. I expanded on it a bit...

So I raided my scrap drawer of decorated papers in green tones and punched a whole bunch of 3/4" squares using an EK Success slim punch. I then adhered them to cream toned cardstock, avoiding the middle area since it would be covered with the quote. When everything was adhered, I then did faux stitched using a Micron pen. Trimmed my background down and adhered to my cream toned card front (5"w x 7"h), then did faux stitching all around.

Stamped my quote (Home/Congratulations set) on another lighter toned cream cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders "Floral Ovals" using a piece of Tyvek between my die and cardstock. The die cut just pops out beautifully... PS you can use the Tyvek over again in the die or color it and use it on a card.

Sponged Distress "Shabby Shutters" and a touch of "Mustard Seed" around the edges and adhered to card with 3D foam squares.

Tied a peg bow from 1.5"w green gauze ribbon and adhered to card with Golden's Extra Heavy gel medium.

Dug into my stash and pulled out a matching green butterfly (Cottage Cutz "Filigree Trio"). Added some white half pearls to the body. and voila!!

Hope you try it, it's another fun technique, thanks Holly.
