Mother's Day


Hello again everyone. I have another card to show you today. This is the first of 2 Mother's Day cards that I am making.  I have stitched a pattern from Ultimate Cross Stitch Cards magazine and used some plain blue card for my base layer.  I used a piece of patterned paper from Docraft Papermania capsule collection.



I was going to add more layers from the same paper pack and some embellishments but I really liked how it looked with just the one layer so I have stopped here.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:



My next Mother's Day card is from the same pattern collection but using yellow roses.  I am having trouble choosing which colours to use as my base layer and choosing which paper to put with it - green or yellow?  I'll blog it when I've made up my mind!

  5. Hi Claire, what a neat and tidy piece of embroidery. I use to do a lot of cross stitch but had to stop because of RSI in my hands and I so miss it. Love to see others doing this and this is Beautiful!!
    Thankyou for joining us at That Craft Place and hope to see you again soon.
