Creative Classmate Pam Comeau has shared this technique at our Monthly Craft Club at Sherri's Works of Heart. Sherri is one of my creative down-line and provided templates & materials for our first card, the Basic Tree.
Putting it Together:
- Click Here for the Basic Tree Embroidery Template. I've cut a fairly large size of Gumball Green card stock and centered the template on top. Simply pierce the holes in the template with your Paper Piercing Tool & Mat.
- So it's time to start embroidering. Click Here for a Stitching Diagram and thread yourself a long strand of embroidery floss through an embroidery needle, I tied a knot but you don't have to. We'll be taking sticky strip to rest the end of your floss just to the outside of your project.
- As shown in the above stitching diagram, your starting hole is the top center. Come up through the center from the back, go down through the left fourth hole, up through the starting hole. Down through the left third hole, up through the starting hole etc. Until the top section as shown in the diagram is done. Come up again in the second middle starting hole and continue this pattern. Very east and very relaxing!
- You'll need more floss for sure, as you get lower on your tree it will go through material. Just lay your loose end into your sticky strip and cut it off. Start another length and come up which ever starting hole you left at and finish .
And there you have it! I've made a card base of Crumb Cake at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. Quite large but the tree fit nicely in my next to largest Windows Framelit, and I was able to add a Midnight Muse Mat with the largest in this package. I added paper piercing to the Gumball Green panel and wrapped this up like a package with my 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon in Midnight Muse.
I think the Argyle embossing folder is one of my recent purchases. I wanted a masculine feel to my card for Allen Lumber. The color in our business logo is Blue, I hope they'll take notice! (and by the way we're Celebrating 125 Years this year!)
