Hello and welcome to my blog. For today’s Inspirational Blog Hop, I made an embroidered frame using the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month and variegated thread.
The die has been designed to apply stitches on a C6 panel (4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ inches) but I wanted to do something else also to share extra ideas with you.
For tips on how to apply stitches on cards make sure to visit my post here.
Die-Cut Embroidered Frame
While doing the needlework, I couldn’t avoid thinking that embroidery is a luxury for a busy mum and professional crafter like me but I decided to invest an afternoon in this project.
I sat down in front of the telly while my family was there too and I chilled out.
So I first, I die cut the panel using dies included in the Spellbinders Large Die of the Month.
Then, I chose the tread colours and I got comfy.
I took my time to do the needlework. Even though I was interrupted all the time ansd watching tv while crafting slows you down.
I applied the next stitches:
- Stem and Chain for the Stem or branches
- Straight Stitch for the leaves
- French Knot on the center of the flowers
- Back Stitch for the outer line.
- I also made a few loops in the center of some flowers.
I decided to create a frame instead of a card . It measures 6-1/2 ” x 7 -1/4″ inches.
This is how the frame looks in the back (so you can have a better idea).
You can seal the back by adhering a piece of cardstock.
You can also see other embroidery card samples with in the video- post here or in the video tutorial below.
