Orange Tree Notebook

This beaded orange tree was my final assessment for the Cross Stitch Diploma and I've attached it to the front of a notebook for a cross stitch swap.

I cut a piece of gold 'watercolour' paper so it was slightly smaller than the notebook, rounded the corners and attached it to the front.  I trimmed the orange textured card, rounded the corners and die cut a stitched oval in the centre.  The sentiment was stamped in dark brown ink along the lower edge of the panel - this was embossed with clear embossing powder.  

I trimmed the cross stitch and attached it behind the aperture.  I placed a piece of white card behind the aida as the yellow watercolour paper made it look a bit grubby.  The finished panel was then attached to the front of the notebook with foam tape.
