Hello! Today’s video shares three things: how to stitch on cards… how to use partial die cutting to “mask”… and how to arrange small embellishments.

I really like the look of stitching on cards – – it adds to the handmade feeling. The new My Favorite Things Peek A Boo Heart Frame and Alphabet dies really make stitching easy since they cut perfectly-spaced, tiny holes. I used We R Memory Keepers silver string. It is great for card stitching and can be easily colored with Copic Markers (or any permanent marker).
The video also shows how I used partial die cutting to creatively “mask” the heart and “xo” dies so there wouldn’t be a messy overlap. This is a great trick to keep in mind when die cutting. I have another video coming soon demonstrating this.
And finally, I show how I go about deciding where to place my sequins and gems. It isn’t rocket science – and I am not sure I always get it just right – but the tips may be helpful. But no matter what… I highly recommend Multi Medium to adhere sequins. Nothing else works as good.
I will be honest – these dies are a huge time saver and something I will be using again soon. However, you could always get a similar effect by tracing a die cut on your card and punching your own tiny holes for stitching.
