Tied Up with String

Sorry I haven't been by in awhile but I haven't been creating much lately. Unless you count creating a big mess! It's all for a good cause though. The cause being that my new craft room really needed an overhaul. I moved in and plunked down my stuff and called it good, which really meant, "Good enough for now."

Meanwhile, I do have this card for you to check out. I had to make a card with no stamping. My go-to non-stamping techniques are decoupage and iris folding. I thought it was time to branch out into some paper embroidery. This was a lot of fun to make but don't expect me to pick up needle and thread too terribly often.

The Fine Print: I have one book called Basics of Embroidery on Paper II, but this design did not come out of it. HA! Corner punch by Martha.

This is just beautiful! Love the design (and I've never done paper embroidery, but once did the regular kind. Nothing elaborate though). The shades of blue in this design certainly enhance the outer white design too. This is one cool card & I think I like it even better than Iris folding (took a class in that, and think I did one card afterward!). Good for you on the craft room sort out. I'm in awe that you did this..I just waffle on and look at the mess and say "Nah, I'll do it later". Happy wkend, tfs. Hugs

Good for you working on organizing your craft room, Judy! Maybe eventually I'll get motivated enough to really make a difference in the mess I have--haha! I love the look of your card--wonderful design!
