MCT 41st Edition Sneak Peek #1


It's My Creative Time Sneak Peek Week, and we've got another fabulous release this month!  Today we are sneaking a fun new die called Circle Stitching Pattern Dies.  This is a super fun set that includes one long die that has lots of stitched circles to add a fun element to your card, plus two different sizes of individual stitched circles if you want to add more random circles.  Note, these circles do not cut out, they just give you that great MCT stitching.


I decided to take the stitching idea literally for my card, so I took a paper piercer and quickly made a hole on top of each of the stitching marks.  I was then able to add some DMC embroidery floss to each of the circles.  This was a fun, relaxing project to do in front of the TV.  I just taped the ends of the floss to the back of my white cardstock with scotch tape.


For my sentiment, I stamped "Birthday wishes" from Vintage Sentiments onto a label made with one of the Vintage Stitched Label Dies, using Versafine Black Onyx Ink  and Ranger Clear Embossing Powder.  It has a nice shine that is easier to see in person.
