So, after all the bemoaning of crafts I haven't finished, I'm happy to report I planned and finished a craft! I've been wanting to stitch on paper for awhile now, and it was even easier than I thought. I used some heavy card stock, felt, and thread, and aside from poking my fingers a few times, I really enjoyed it...
The card is for a little girl, so I knew I wanted there to be a heart, and some judicious use of pink. I love how fuzzy and warm felt feels, and I hope she likes it as much as I do... I decided at the last minute to make the heart a pin she can wear:
I also embroidered the little "Hola" at the top of the card, and found it easier to poke the little holes through beforehand:
I loved how the back of the punched holes looked, almost like braille:
This all began because I was thinking of ideas for an embroidered Valentine. I really want to do a tutorial for a card...
Here's a closeup of the mixtape card, which of course has my favorite lovesong of all time, "Lovesong:"
So, which would you like to see a tutorial for? The monkey card, or the mixtape card? Both?
I hope all is well with everybody, and that you're feeling happy and inspired and that your world is thawing out - it's much warmer today, which always makes me feel more inspired - I even dusted off my paint tray today and washed all my paintbrushes!
