PTI Make It Monday #78

Good afternoon fellow crafters, how are you all doing? I am doing great, I literally have to be at work in 30 minutes, but I wanted to post up my entry for this weeks Make it Monday challenge here over at Papertrey Ink.

This week the video is by Heather Nichols, and the challenge is stamping and stitching. I always see Kristina Werner stitching on her projects, and I got the idea for my card from her blog. She always has great videos and tutorials!

I've been working on Halloween and Christmas cards the last few weeks, so I decided to go ahead and make a Christmas card for this challenge using the Tremendous Treats: Christmas stamp set along with the Limitless Layers Circle die set. I stamped the image and sentiment with Pigment Black ink and clear embossed both. I added some glitter to the little snowman and then cut him out. I adhered him to the card with dimensionals. The patterned paper is from the All Seasons Cardstock paper stack from Recollections. I wanted something a little thicker than thread to do my stitching, so I used white Crochet thread from Red Heart.






I cannot wait to make a set of this same card using all the images from the Tremendous Treats Christmas stamp set. Now that they are bigger images, they are so much easier to color them and cut them out for projects! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

I love handstitching but I frequently forget about cross-stitching as an option. It's so cute and the perfect compliment to your card! :)
