PTI blog hop - embroidery floss

Papertrey Ink's blog hop theme this month is to use embroidery floss.  I haven't tried this before, so I looked forward to the challenge! 





The floss was weaved (just by hand) through the holes of the die, then tied. I looped it around and then used a smidgen of hot glue to fix it into place. I was hoping to have the new Tiny tags dies/stamps by now, so just image a little tag dangling from the floss.

The card evolved over awhile actually - I had gotten the heart and musicsheet background stamps a few months ago, and had stamped a bunch of paper with them in anticipation of using later.  Then I got the Parisian lace doily die with the February release, and decided I wanted to see it in hot pink, and so the rest of the card all sort of fell together from there.



The leaves were stamped with grey, the flower punched out of patterned paper, and the circle mat is also stamped with a delicate background stamp (envelope pattern).

Enjoy the rest of the hop - I know I will!

Supplies; Stamps - BB: Music Sheet, BB: Hearts, Envelope Pattern, Turning a New Leaf, Delightful dahlia (sentiment), Paper - Lemon tart, Raspberry fizz, cream, Bittersweet PP (Basic grey), Other - Parisian lace doily die, Limitless labels 1 3/4'' circle dies, Boho blooms flower punch (SU), cream embroidery floss.
