Do you love Card Making? Have you ever wanted to try some Hand Stitching on your cards?  I have been wanting to try this technique for quite some time and when I saw the pretty colours in the new Blessed Collection by Kaisercraft I decided to give it a go.  I purchased some brightly coloured hand-embroidery thread from Spotlight and with a little You Tube search I was hand stitching like a Pro in no time lol! You can do it too!! Its actually very relaxing…even my hubby stitched a card and liked it!

These cards also involve some colouring, so if you enjoy colouring an image, you need to keep an eye out for this pretty paper collection.  I coloured my flowers with Kaisercraft Gel Pens.

I created a set of Four Cards utilising the Stamp Set with matching Die Cuts.  They all follow the same basic design.

    I’ve thought about hand stitching a few times on scrapbook layouts as I don’t have a sewing machine. I haven’t been game enough to try it but maybe a card would be a good way to start. I do have a piercing ruler.

    It was easy and fun Mary and very relaxing. I havent done a layout yet either, but I have been admiring layouts with hand stitching a lot :)
