Are you new to stitching on cards? Our resident bearded design ambassador, Daniel is too! In this post, he shows us how to add a stitched surprise to a card with some shiny thread and pink sequins.
Hey there! Daniel, here, with a fun use of the smallest of the Essential Ovals for Stitching dies. I added a few rows of agave plants across the panel by repeatedly die cutting the oval. Then, I added a gold stitch and flowers made of Providence Sequins.
- If you don’t have a little needle threader handy, press your thread end with a dab of liquid adhesive to flatten it out and hold the strands together. You’ll spend a lot less time threading your needle.
- Use tape to hold down the cut strands on the back of your project. I used double-sided adhesive and left the backing on.
- To line up die cut letters on the front of your project, use the negative space from the original panel as your template, gluing the letters into place perfectly.
