A Day All About You - GDP061 - Stitched Framelits


Today I am going to be sharing with you a card designed using my Stitched Shapes Framelits teamed with my Layering Circle Framelits to create a stitched frame effect.
I have entered this card into the Global Design Projects colour challenge for this week #GDP061 
I have also entered this card into #CTC10

Now as you can see, or rather can't see, the stitched detail in the photo above isn't at all visible, as it was created using Basic Black card stock. But IRL it is quite visible, and also very tactile.

So I thought I would try this, to show you a closer shot of the detail. 
Hmmm it helps a little.

A quick rundown of how I made the card:
  • Materials:
1 x A4 Basic Black Card stock folded in half then cut to 10.5 cm
1 piece Sweet Sugarplum card stock cut to 10 x 14.5 cm
2 pieces of Thick White card stock cut at 9.5 x 10cm
1 x small scrap piece of Emerald Envy card stock.
1 piece of vellum cut at 9 x 9.5 cm
Clear embossing powder
Versamark Ink
Black Stazon Ink
Sweet Sugarplum Ink
Blossom Punch and the Pansy Punch
Flourish Thinlits
Glue dots
Black Bakers Twine

  • Directions:
Get the 2 3/4 inch Stitched framelit and find a circle framlelits, the one slightly smaller than the stitched Shape. 
Place the smaller Layering Circle where you would like your circle to be on you card front and run through the big shot.
Then before cutting anymore lay the white card stock under the circle and carefully mark it. 1 piece at a time, so that you know where to place your stamps. Place your card in your misti and stamp the selected image on both cards. 
REMEMBER you are only cutting the circle from one piece of the white card stock! The other piece is your inside image!
Using the same framelit cut out your circle accordingly. This leaves you with a small part of the image left on the front of your card.
To make a couple of frames for your cutout shapes both inside and out, you will need to start by first cutting your circles with the stitched Shapes framelit in your chosen colours. Then placing the smaller Layering Circle over the cut out shape, 'NOT THE NEGATIVE IMAGE'  hold in place with a piece if tape and re-cut. This will give you your stitched frame edge. Glue in place as desired.

  • For the vellum image.
Again position your vellum under the front cut out shape and gently mark with a pencil.
Using your embossing buddy dust the vellum sheet. Stamp your selected image by placing your stamp in Versamark then the Stazon. Dust with clear embossing powder, tap of excess then heat with heat tool.
Colour your image from the underside of the vellum, adding accents and highlights to the front of the image.
