Less is More Christmas Tree

This week's Less is More Challenge is 'Sewing'.   I decided to make a stitched card and used a free template from Form-a-Lines.


I downloaded the template and attached it to a piece of white pearlescent card.  I then used my pricking tool and mat to transfer the pattern to my card.  After removing the template, I followed the instructions to stitch the card.  I used DMC threads, a single red thread for the baubles, a double green thread for the tree and double gold thread for the star.  I attached the white card to red Moondust card and then onto the front of a white pearlescent card blank.

  5. That tree is so beautiful, using one thread for the stars has given a great effect - not too bulky.
