For the first one, I coloured the JOY in light blue shimmery watercolour, distressed the edge and adhered it to the front of the card using 3D foam tape. I die cut two leafy branches (TH- SX) from silver foil cardstock and mounted one above and the other below which very nicely yielded a wreath shape. Love the way the paper looks embossed and the little branches looking like a wreath!!
For the second card, I coloured the JOY using a pink/red shimmery watercolour, ran the pattern tracing wheel around the edges and mounted it to my card front using 3D foam tape. I added a little silver foil star punchie using 3D foam tape as well. Really happy with these two! Therese
Here is my first square incorporating the little cross stitched hearts I made earlier. I positioned the little yellow heart embellishment and then stitched all the way to secure it properly to my base square. I added strips of fabric around it and pinned them into place before starting my stitching. Generally, I did one side before moving on to the other sides using coordinating floss. I stitched down the edges as I went when they did not incorporate into the basic stitching. I like how this one worked out!! Therese
