Heavenly Hemstitch (again) and our Biggest Giveaway Ever!

Hello friends

Today's card is very simple compared to some of my recent 'makes'.
I've been heavily into layers and flowers.
Instead this time, I chose to make Hemstitch Squares the star.
I started by stamping an image onto a white card base and then die cut
Hemstitch Squares from silver foil card.
This is the middle size in the set.


Positioned over the stamped image with 3D Foam Squares and added
a sprig and little flowers.


A typed sentiment to finish, running across the width of the square.


Let's just say it was a lot quicker to make than other cards this week!

Hemstitch Squares is back in stock on the website here.
Also in stock is Hemstitch Circles, equally lovely and selling super fast.

In other news, Hope and Chances is hosting our biggest giveaway yet...

Good morning Christine back home after a few days in France where I certainly had the best weather and have come back with the rain so I hope your journey this morning was ok. Like how you have placed the frame on your card and the little flowers are delightful. Best wishes Jackie x

WOW Christine, this is a gorgeous card and the Hemstitch die is beautiful used as the focal image. Who knew (besides YOU, obviously!) that a square die could look so elegant as a focal point? Well done.

This is such a clever idea - adding a frame on top of a stamped image allowing the image to show over the edges of the frame too
I am on FB but don’t go on it very often
