In Stitches

In the midst of a very busy month, I FINALLY had a chance to sit down and play with some of my new pre-order goodies from the upcoming Holiday catalogue, and found the Stampin' 411 sketch fit just perfectly! Some of the Orchard Harvest papers are perfect for the Hoop La La set, so I decided to have some fun with that. The tried and true Lattice folder works great to accent the two as well, and with the new Core'dinations paper, it was even better! After sanding the embossed Core'dinations, it even had a beautiful fabric like feel and look to it that accented the theme of the card perfectly. And for some finishing touches, I used the new silver Stampin Dazzle marker to color the metal screwpiece at the top of the embroidery ring, and I silver embossed the needle stamp directly onto the "stitch" paper, and threaded some Baker's Twine through it, as if it was sewing the stitches on the paper. And of course, I clear embossed the sentiment, so it would be raised like actual crosstitches.

And here's the sketch I used...
