I created this card as a sample for the video for the Faux Stitching tutorial. It was very hard for me not to use my sewing machine instead.  I used three different stitches on the card to show them off. On the top right corner I used a non continous stitch, zigzag on the upper edge of the horizontal strip, continous straight stitch on the bottom of the strip.

The image is from JustRite Stampers Autumn Blessings. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (Apples: YR31, R22, R27, R39, Berries: R29, R59, Leaves: G82, G94, G85, Basket: E31, E34, E35, E37, E39, Ground: W1, W2). The image was cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities and airbrushed with YR31. It was then layered on a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with Lacey Circle Nestabilities.


A  4 1/2″ wide black cardstock strip was cut and embossed with Lotus Borderabilities and adhered under a 1 7/8″ x 4 1/2″ strip of Early Bird Cosmo Cricket Paper. The strips were adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of different paper from the same pack. After adding the faux stitching May Arts gingham ribbon was tied over the horizontal strip. The main image was adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from JustRite stampers set Seeds of Kindness. It was stamped on Neenah Solar White with Tuxedo Black ink and cut with Spellbinders Tag die. The center was airbrushed with YR31. The sentiment was adhered under the bow with dimensionals. Champagne Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card.
