Stitched Circle Christmas Card
by Angie Cimbalo

Left tilt

Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here with a fun Christmas card made with the  Stitched Circle Die.  

I die cut the die in my Gemini Junior, then began the stitching with red embroidery thread first as you can see below.94404


Once I finished with the red, I added green thread stitching in the middle of each point.  The sentiment, from "Spirit of Christmas" stamp set, was heat embossed on black card stock in white embossing powder.  Then I die cut the sentiment with one of the  "Knotted Circle Wreaths" dies and another one from red glitter paper from the "Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad."  I used the outer piece of the red glitter card stock to frame the sentiment and then added a gem from my stash at each of the star points, and to the sentiment.  Here's a closer look:

Stitching on a card front is very therapeutic and I really enjoy the many stitching die options from Memory Box.  I also think adding this fun stitched element to a card makes it even more special for the recipient!  Here's one last look at my card:


I hope I have inspired to you use some stitching on a card.  It doesn't take much time, about the same as coloring an image in detail.   I did this while I watched tv one night and then made it into a card the next day.  I have several panels already die-cut with the stitching dies that I keep by my chair so in the evening, I can leisurely add the stitching when I want something to keep my hands busy!  Be sure to check out all the stitching dies from Memory Box, there are a lot to choose from!  Thanks so much for stopping by!







Wow Angie - love the extra sparkle!
