I am a member of the Durban Creative Card Guild that meets every month, and one of our activities is a monthly card swap where we make 5 cards, swap 4, and donate one to the "Charity Box" At the end of the year we donate a box of at least 150 cards to each of 2 or 3 charities.
The theme for this month's swap is "Any Card Technique" and I decided to use stitching on my card, and that my cards will be for Breast Cancer Awareness. This is one of the five identical cards I made:
To make this card I used a Marianne's Creatables die to cut the oval, and stuck that to the DP which had been matted onto the same pink CS as the diecut. I used a prick and stick method in a faux spirelli technique using the black thread.
A large shiny pink gem was attached to the oval diecut as well as a pink satin ribbon bow from which a metal charm of the work HOPE is hanging.
NOTE : In real life the pink satin ribbon is a shade paler than the pink in the DP, but the flash of the camera has changed it's colour so that it looks peach/apricot in colour! All the other colours are true but I think the shininess of the satin has affected the colours ... SORRY ... I wish it could have shown the true colours.
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
