Another stitched Christmas card, one to invite you to play along in our last Fadengrafik Challenge of 2015. In December, we'd like to see your Christmas-related projects of any kind, given they include some paper embroidery.
I've prepared the card a while ago, which seemed to be a good choice as I always seem to be late on everything. At least when I have exams coming up, and a head full of crafting ideas that want to be realized. Could someone add more hours to the day, please?
Well, without further whining, here is my card for the challenge:
I've stitched the floral swirls with ornaments with regular cross-stitch yarn, replaced the stitched poinsettia with a 3D sticker and - had no further idea about how to finish the project.
The blank space next to the embroidery was just too huge to leave it empty, but on the other hand, nothing I tried seemed to fit (tries included, among others: vintage images, golden stickers, stars, snowflakes, pearls...).
I guess this must be called a crafters' Christmas worries syndrome :)
In the end, I decided to go with another 3D sticker, one in form of a Christmas tag on which I placed a golden sticker saying "Merry Christmas". On the tag itself, I placed a tiny brown bow. Turns out the card looks pretty simple in comparison to the nerves it cost me.
