Sending warm fuzzies

I wanted to let the background on this card get most of the focus, so I kept the other elements understated.

I made this Easter card for my mom with two challenges in mind (Young Crafters Unite called for stitching, and A Blog Named Hero for using Hero Arts stamps):

Young Crafters Unite! sewing/stitching challenge    A Blog Named Hero

I stamped the background with watermark ink and clear embossed it. Then I applied four colors of distress ink to make the background design pop. I pierced all the center dots before doing a cross stitch with brown floss to cover the whole thing. Honestly, this took a good bit of time to stitch, so after all that work I didn’t want to take much of the focus off that background. So I cut a little bunny with my Silhouette, covered his cotton tail with Stickles and stamped my sentiment on a banner. And a card is born!


This close-up shot shows the detail of the stitched background.


These are the main materials I used to create this card.
