Day 4 of Clean And Simple Class: Another Anniversary Card

On Day 4 of the Clean and Simple 4: Technique Made Simple online card class, we focused on adding texture.  I dabbled in cross stitched and the thought of doing it on a card sounds like too much, but once I started on this card, it went pretty quickly.  Also, since I am currently working on a quilt, the idea of getting out the needle and thread for this was not that appealing even though I like the look.  I’m actually taking this class as a break from my quilting.   I was surprised once again by how much I liked it.  Funny, how the two worlds are crossing over.
 Anyway, I’m still on my stash building of anniversary cards so I pulled out my sentiment from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings set.  I traced die cuts from Lil’Inker stitched heart dies and chose two different sizes to give it some interest.  

I did not have pink embroidery thread so I used my Copic RV00 marker and color my white embroidery thread to make my own.  I was all proud of myself for using one of the techniques I learned from the Copic Online card class and saving myself a trip to the store.

  1. How smart of you to color your white thread with a marker, Linda! The thread really does add a nice texture without too much bulk! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday "Anything Goes" challenge!
