Stitch It! - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

Doesn't it come round quick?! Not sure where the days go..........it's been so cold and scraping the ice off the car in the morning is a job I could well do without.

This week's challenge for the Daring Cardmakers was to make a card that incorporated stitching of any kind. I don't own a sewing machine and although I could have hand stitched, I went down the faux stitching route.

I got the opportunity to use one of my favourite stitched die sets from Sizziz combined with a faux stitched sentiment.  I used the paper piecing technique with the cute Sizzix elephant die set to make the topper for this easel card.


I hope you'll join in with the challenge and check out the fab inspiration here.

Keep warm!
