*** Elina Stromberg *** You are here!

The blog hop ends on May 19.  So there's still plenty of time to visit the blogs, to leave your comments, and to get a chance to win a fun prize!

My second project is a stamped, stitched, and heat-embossed Thank You card:


For the card front I chose a piece of plain kraft cardstock. I stamped the pattern with yellow ink as I did not want the ink to show too much under the stitches. Once the yellow Memento was dry the lines could be seen only very gently which was just the result I wanted to gain.
I used only one stamp, but rotated it by 180 degrees after each line.


Using three strings of the pink and embroidery yarns I stitched the stamped pattern.


The sentiment text I stamped on a piece of vellum, and heat-embossed using copper embossing powder. Before adhering the card front on the patterned background paper I attached the vellum strip on the back of the card. With both ends secured between the cardstock layers the strip did not have to be glued on the card front.




I like how the card background looks like. Hope it inspires you, too!
If you missed the blog hop posts from yesterday (blog hop day 1), please have a look at my ATC card post yesterday. Blog hop ends on May 19, so there's still plenty of time to participate.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
