Hi crafters, hope you are enjoying the sunshine this weekend! Today we have some gorgeous stitched cards from DT member Sam using the Unicorn Fairground range.
Sam says: I wanted to combine both the stamps and a few of the printed die-cuts from the Unicorn Fairground Die-Cut Ephemera pack. I don’t often choose to work with ephemera because I love stamping so much but I was able to create three relatively simple cards under an hour – which for me is actually a world record!
Below are Sam’s instructions on how to make the card. She’s kept them simple, because the same process can be applied to all three cards. Her main tip is to take your time when stamping the chevrons to ensure they align perfectly. Sam used her MISTI tool to help with this as you can easily align and repeat the stamping.
Step 1: Stamp the chevron background on white card.
(Measurements: 5 inches x 7 inches)
Step 2: Add machine stitched border and details to card front. (Optional)
Step 3: Stamp sentiment on white card. Trim. Add machine stitched border (optional).
Step 4: Adhere sentiment (using foam tape) to card along with the ephemera.
Step 5: Embellish with sequins and twine.
Step 6: Adhere card front to side folding card base.

For the next two cards Sam changed the colour and orientation of the chevrons but kept the same stitching details.
Sam says: The card below I added a chevron strip to the top and bottom. I used blue ink to stamp the chevrons which colour co-ordinate with the hot air balloons. I added machine stitched lines and embellished the card in the same way with sequins and twine. I also added stitched lines to the cloud ephemera. It’s probably my favourite card out of the three.
