My favorite four - R1 (Tutorial)

Anyway, as for my card today, I chose Row 1 as my favorite four, ie, Stamping, Distressing & Blending, Stitching and Pattern Paper.Keeping all these four in mind I decided to make a card.

I'll explain the card in detail through a tutorial. So here goes:


I have here a grey card stock sized 11x28 cms folded into half, black card stock sized 10x13 cms and a pattern paper sized 6x12 cms

For embossing I used watermark Stamp Pad, stamp, black embossing powder and a heat gun.

This is how the image will look once embossed.

I used Micia's orange color stamp pad that match the pattern paper to distress around the embossed image.

I dipped the edges of the pattern paper in a watermark stamp pad like so.

Later sprinkled black embossing powder on it and heat embossed it using a heat gun.

I love how the distressed edges look..

I then adhered it down to the black card stock,

Now for the stitching part I thought I'd go for a ribbon instead of a twine or thread.

Punch holes half an inch away as I have done in the image below using a crop-a-dile.

Now, stitch criss cross using a ribbon that match the pattern paper.

I also tied a black ribbon in the bottom of the stamped image like shown in the pic below.

I also added a doily punched border below the black ribbon.

I added some more embellishments on the card and voila! my card is ready.

I hope you found the tutorial helpful. :)

Until next time.
