Stitched New Year Card

Hello. I created this card to be mailed out to the nice people who sent us Christmas cards but I don't think I can mass produce this in time for New Year's Day. I got busy the past week and stitching the card did take some time.

I created a stitched number pattern with Paper Smooches Digits stamp as inspiration. I ran the PS Cross Stitch die on 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" black cardstock. I ran it about three times to create a panel with more cross stitch holes in it. To do this, I lined the circles of the die to the line of holes made in the black cardstock. I taped this too to avoid any shifting. I started stitching the number based on the created pattern. I used a white DMC floss for all the stitching.

I die cut a gold mirror cardstock using the largest in the PS Pinked Circles Wise die. I trimmed off the excess off the edges of the stitched black cardstock. I cut a 5 1/4" x 4" white cardstock. I splattered some Prima Color Blooms Gold Foil on the white cardstock, then set it aside to dry.

I cut the pinked circle in half. I heat embossed the word hello on the top half of the pinked circle using white embossing powder. I adhered the pinked circles to the splattered white cardstock. I adhered the stitched black cardstock on the center using foam adhesive.

I die cut a ribbon from PS Bows Wise die set using a gold glittered cardstock. I adhered this to a black cardstock then fussy cut around it. I added clear Spetrum Noir shimmer pen to the black areas. I then adhered this to the bottom pinked circle. I added a Tonic Nuvo Gold Crystal drop to the center of the bow.

I adhered the panel to a top folding black colored note card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy New Year to everyone!

Have a blessed, brilliant and creative new year ahead!
