Today I'm posting a card I made for my Mom and today is her actual birthday! I played along in the Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge to use embroidery thread on your card. Nothing too crazy here since my crafting mojo is on vacation this week but I still think it's cute...even if predictable.
I stamped the flowers, colored them in with copics and then drew circles inside with a pencil. I pressed holes into the paper with the needle on a foam mat to help prevent too much bending. This made stitching a breeze. I also learned early on that you can't make the holes very close together since it will quickly become one larger hole. To help this I colored the centers yellow since quite a bit of white was showing...nice fake :)

Thanks so much for dropping by and Happy Birthday Mom if you happen to see this!
