Needle & Thread for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #550
February 28, 2019
Taking a break from Sale-A-Bration products and using the Needle & Thread bundle from the Occasions catalog for today's Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.
Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.
I chose the Needle & Thread bundle because I wanted a set that had sentiments as well as images. I also wanted a set that had coordinating framelits. The added bonus of this bundle is that it also has the Needlepoint Nook DSP. I started by choosing the pattern of DSP I wanted to work with and then built the card around the paper. The 2 strips of paper underneath the oval is also DSP and in fact is on the back of the paper I chose. I thought the stitched stripes looked like ribbon which fit the sketch perfectly.
One of my favorite framelits in the Needlepoint Elements Framelits is the one I used to create the design on the Whisper White card stock. It is a beautiful stitched design and I ran it multiple times to create the stitched background. Simple and yet adds a lot of interest. I will be using this idea again soon.
Now it is time for you to check out what the other members of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team created. Thank you for stopping by!
