Be Who You Are!

Be Who You Are!



Hey there, Terri here! Today I am sharing a card that incorporates embroidery on a card!!! Lawn released the Embroidery Hoop Die Set a year or so ago and it's been hugely popular. However, we dont always want the stitching to be in an embroidery hoop, fast forward to their most recent release and they gave us the Embroidery Hoop Window and Frame Add-On Die. This allows the stitched element to really become part of the card or even a framed element.



I started off by cutting the Embroidery Hoop Rainbow Add-On Die twice from 110lb cardstock and adhering them together. You don't have to do this but I am a little heavy handed at times and find that a sturdier base to stitch on save me from buckling the card as I go. I stitched the rainbow using 6 strands of embroidery floss.


Using the Watercolor Wishes 6x6 Paper Pad I die cut a stitched rectangle and then used the window die from the Embroidery Hoop Window and Frame Add-On Die to cut a circle apperture. I adhered the stitched rainbow behind the apperture and then die cut a purple scalloped frame using the same die set. I adhered this on top of the window. I love how cute it looks.



I added some rainbow stripe paper to an A2 notecard and then placed the stitched panel using foam tape. I used Henry's ABCs Die Set to cut the word "PRIDE" from the same rainbow stripe paper, I cut them again from purple card and stacked them with a slight drop shadow. Next I stamped the rest of my sentiiment using the Henry's Jrs ABCs Stamp Set, I stamed onto the rainbow stripe paper to keep the colours cohesive. I then added glossy accents to all of the sentiment parts. Once dry I added them to the card using foam pads for the stamp elements and glue for the die cut letters.


As it's pride month, I thought this card would be a great way to show my support to amm of my friends and family who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community Happy Pride.
