I am a big fan of stitching with my sewing machine on my cards & projects, and recently started experimenting with this metallic gold thread from Gutermann. I was doubtful that it would stand up well, because it is such a delicate filament, but it works beautifully! I used it to glam up this week's card for Art Impressions using Antiques Window (Sku #4587)
Even though this is a masculine card, I don't find the gold thread to be over the top - it just adds a bit of glimmer. I made a frame with a double row of wonky stitching and popped it up with pop dots. I did a little zigzag stitch on the heart, and popped both it and the main image up as well. The Antiques Window is one of the Windows To The World stamps - they're quick to colour and have wonderful sayings written around them. *This would be a great Father's Day card... you can find all the WTTW stamps here
. Happy stamping!
What a great card! I LOVE the addition of the thread and think it goes perfectly with the rustic theme. Awesome stitching - make it very unique :)
