Have you seen the fun Sweet Pea Stitched Felt in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Mini Catalogue?! So cute! This is a card we did at Stampers & Scrappers club the other night…well almost…we added a French Knot circle on the ribbon (after I took this photo). Anyway, I went with the stitched effect on this card – with the double stitched Rose Red grosgrain ribbon and faux stitching on the main image. To create faux stitching, punch holes in your cardstock and join them using the pen tip (as opposed to the brush tip) end of your Stampin' Write marker. To make my border stitches as neat (and straight!) as possible, I used the paper piercer guide mat at the top & bottom of the image. I was daring and "free handed" the stem. One club member wanted to be sure her stem was "just so" and drew her stem first, then punched along her line. Whatever works! The sentiment is also from the Occasions Mini – Well Scripted.
