December Technique Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! This month there are 7 of us highlighting the “Stitching” Technique as shown in the Fall/Winter 2012 Idea Book! This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from Joy's Blog, you are on the right track!I created this saddle stitched card, inspired by Pinterest and the Dakota Paper. 

I cut a section of chocolate paper and laid it over a Daisy White card. I used the cricut to cut the black  frame. I added two gold big brads and the patch from the Wrangler Assortment. 

Lastly I used the piercing tool to create the holes and waxy flax to sew around the edges. I won't lie, it took forever.

Thanks for stopping by! Please continue onto Judy Faye's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique! Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
