It's time for another challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog. This week, the challenge is to use stitching on your card. It can be either real or faux. I have stitched ribbon and I did faux stitching around the edge of my card. I pierced holes all along the edge of the main panel and then drew my "stitches" with a pen. Like my real stitching, it's crooked. Oh well! That's "art imitating life" right?
There is a snowflake embellishment up in the left corner but it's hard to see in the picture. I used blue "pearls" to accent it to help it show up a little better. Some of the snowflakes in the paper have star dust stickles in their centers -- of course, that's also hard to see in the picture. On the white embossed lower panel, I used some left over bling from the flourish to accent the centers of some of the snowflakes.
I did quite a bit of interior decorating -- the camera angle makes the writing panel look huge. It's really a 5.5" square card. :) I was just trying to show the whole interior but ended up with a funky angle.
Here is a close up of the interior upper panel. I carried the stitching theme throughout the entire card. This upper panel has reversed matting (I'm sure there's another name for it). The Scripture verse is actually on the bottom and the kraft & snowy blue papers are layered on top.
