Stitched Christmas card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "It's a Stitch Up".

The time for making Christmas cards has arrived, I've made this a fairly simple card. I used the Dashing Deer die as my focal point of the card. The Distress Oxides work perfect for coloring the deer, I've used Vintage Photo and Antique Linen.


I chose faux stitching by using the Stitched Rectangles die as a frame. In the background I stamped the diamond stamp with the set of the STAMPtember 2017 from Tim Holtz. With a MISTI or another stamping tool it really works very well to stamp a full pattern. But I always do a trail run to measure the pattern out.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

Wow! The background turned out amzing! What a precision in stamping, I still don't know how you figured out where to stamp and how much to pass the card!!! And don't know either wht you pass a Powder Tool through the edges. So many misteries! It's such a quick and lovely card! And Mr. Deer is my lovely one! Hugs, Marzena
