Hi there, this month’s Merry Stitching Spellbinders Large Die – November 2020 will allow you to apply stitches or to do some embroidery onto your cards!
So for today, I made two cards and I was brave enough to embroider an envelope too.
I know, embroidering the envelope was a little bit extreme, I was just CRAZY to see who it looks.
MERRY STITCHING LARGE DIE NOVEMBER 2020
- This is a 6 pieces die set that includes a scalloped border die, a snowflake, and a Xmas tree.
- The dies in this set will pierce the paper creating a pattern to embroider on your papercraft projects.
- With these, you could cut inlaid patterns into the paper or you also have the option to cut the shapes out of the paper using the coordinating frame dies.
You can also use these die cuts as templates out of tracing paper to embroider onto felt, or fabric.
merry stitching size of the dies
- Tree: 2-3/4 x 2- 1/4 inches – (7 x 5.4cm)
- Doily: 2-1/2″ x 2- 1/2″ inches -(6.5cm x 5.5cm)
- Border: 5″x 1-1/4″ inches – ( 12.5 x 3.2 cm)
MERRY STITCHING DIE SET INSTRUCtIONS
You can use these instructions as a guide or do your own thing.
MERRY STITCHING BORDER DIE
- First I die cut smooth white cardstock 300 grams to create the front panel of this card
- Next, I used “6 divisible strands embroidery tread” in blue and gold.
- I used 3 thread strands to do my stitching.
- For the sentiments, I used one plate from Yana’s Christmas Sentiments glimmer plates.
- To finish, I simply foam mounted the panel onto a navy blue card base.
MERRY STITCHING EMBROIDERED ENVELOPE
This is a Navy Blue Simon Says Stamp envelope and its flap was the perfect size to place the die.
I tried to be as neat as possible at the back of the flap and I was very careful when stitching to avoid tearing the paper.
If want to add stitches to your envelopes, you could also make envelopes from scratch in a ticker paper and also add a backing panel to cover the stitches behind.
Spellbinders got an envelope- box die set here that will be perfect to create this kind of envelopes, plus this will be ideal for dimensional cards.
I have some 3D projects to share with you and I so need the envelope- box die set. Hopefully, it will arrive in a couple of weeks.
MERRY STITCHING SNOWFLAKE DIE
This card was rather easy and the snowflake was the quickest to stitch.
I was tempted to make a mini box and add the embroidered snowflake on the lid but instead, I decided to partially die cut the background for this card using the same snowflake die.
I also die-cut gold mirror cardstock using the snowflake frame die and I added it behind the embroidered snowflake.
YES YOU CAN SKIP THE STITCHING
You can skip the stitching and enjoy the beautiful dotty patterns created by the 3 different dies designs in the die sets.
I made a couple of projects and not stitching was involved. I’ll be sharing them on the Spellbinders Clubs Inspirational Blog Hop on November 12 – 2020. So stay tuned.

a cute story
I was taking pictures of these projects in my garden as there was some electric work getting done at home and the power supply was off. I really wanted my work done that morning.
So I organize my cards on my garden table and I was doing my thing.
Suddenly, I feel someone was looking at me and I saw this little guy standing on the fence staring at me, or maybe he was staring at my projects?
He was very intrigued about what I was doing.
So that micro tiny little Robbin looked with one eye, and then he turned his head and looked with the other.
He couldn’t believe his eyes!!!
I tried to take a picture of him as quickly as I could but I had macro lenses in my camera and they don’t zoom in!! So shhh!!! I had to get a little bit closer.
The camera made a noise, I was very close but the little bird didn’t move.
As this is Scotland it started raining. I had to get home and he flew away.
How blessed we are, we have today to appreciate nature and also to enjoy the magic of papercraft.
That’s all for today.
I hope you enjoy this post and come back tomorrow to the Spellbinders Glimmer of the month.
Happy die-cutting and stitching.
