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.
