The circle portion of the Stampin' Up! Essentials Paper Piercing Pack is one that I could use with my punches as I have several circle punches. However, I wanted to try something a little different since sewing is so popular right now. I have two containers full of DMC embroidery floss left from the 70's and 80's when I did a lot of counted cross stitch. It has come in handy on several papercrafting projects .
The first card I tried, I stitched across and back for this effect:
Which do you like better? I thought I liked the first one best but seeing the card side by side, I think the running stitch makes the rainbow seem bigger.
For the bottom of the card, I've used an old Inkadinkado sentiment. A St. Patrick's Day one would be perfect here. The cardstock is Stampin' Up!'s new Gumball Green.
Here is the video at YouTube:
I've got one more of these paper piercing cards coming next week. It is a dressier card and probably my favorite of the series.
Thanks for visiting today!
