Stitched Tree Die
by Donna Sledzik

Good morning everyone! Welcome to day 3 of  Memory Box's Blog Blitz.  Today I used the new Stitched Tree Craft Die for my cards. There's a chance for you to win prizes by leaving a comment on each blog post this week.

For my cards I used the same technique of die cutting the tree onto kraft cardstock and used embroidery floss to fill in the design.  Just by changing the background papers and adding a few embellishments you get totally different looks. I am showing you only one idea to stitch this tree, but there are so many more ways to use this die and I'm sure I'll be back with a few more ideas for you!

I die cut my tree onto a larger piece of kraft cardstock and then trimmed my background as needed for my card.

For this sample I kept the design simple.  I thought it could be used for a more masculine card. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto the black cardstock mat.

For the second card I added a few more embellishments and gold heat embossed the sentiment.  I used the plaid paper to give it a more country look.

I hope you enjoyed today's cards and don't forget to check back all week for some more great inspiration!

Would you like a chance to win the new Stitched Tree Die?  Leave a comment to this post by Sunday, August 9th at 11:59pm EST.  One comment will be chosen at random to win the die.  Winners from the blitz will be posted on the Outside the Box blog on Monday, August 10th at 6pm EST.  Good luck!  One comment/entry per person per day.

This is such a cool die. I love your cards Donna. I can see lots of leftover embroidery thread being used here : )

I love the stitching! ❤️

Love these, Donna! Thanks for highlighting this die, I missed it when I looked at the new release!

Love these cards! And that
is a super die!

Great cards. The die makes very unique Christmas cards. Would be fun to do with sparkly thread.

Great die and beautiful cards!! I love the plaid paper and red dot accents. Thanks for the chance to win.

I love stitched cards Donna and your cards always beautiful. The die looks like a lot of fun.

Love this wonky Christmas tree on your cards.

Now this Tree Die looks like a lot of fun and something neat to do as we stay home! It would be fun to decorate in many different ways. Thanks for sharing with us!!!

I love your designs, and like that the die has the holes punched. I have a stamp but you have to punch all of the holes. Thanks, Phyllis

Wonderful card!!! It's always great to have another style of Christmas tree die!!!

Lovely tree cards. I like the stitching.

Lovely way to
make the Christmas
tree.

Fabulous cards, What a brilliant die for adding stitching to Christmas cards. xx

Cool die!

Stitching is such a fun and very different technique for Christmas cards. Love the plaid accent.

Your two cards are so pretty, Donna! Love the plaid paper you used for the background on the second one.

Beautiful cards Donna! I love the texture and interest from the stitching. Fun and creative new die.

I love the texture that the stitching adds to the card!

Great cards! I love stitching dies! This one is so simple but you've shown it provides a wonderful focus point on cards. Lots of dimension without a lot of bulk. I think it would be very relaxing to stitch up a bunch of these trees for my Christmas cards this year. Thanks for sharing!

What a FUN card for the holidays! It makes me want to get started on my holidays cards right now!!

So cool! I love this and may even have to try it! Thanks for sharing

Love this concept!

It's fun to see how everything old is new again. We were using a similar technique when I began making cards YEARS ago. Thanks for the reminder--I like the design!

I love to stitch on paper. Love this tree that you did, and it's a real inspiration to me. I'm a real fan of Memory Box dies and have so many of them which I love to pull out and make a card. I do a lot of my stitching when the television is on.
