Simple Hand Stitching

Today’s card features a way to adhere tricky embellishments. Freckled Fawn has some really fun embellishment kits! I loved the transparency letters included and wanted to create a sentiment from them. Since they are clear, I didn’t want to use an adhesive that would show through, so I chose to hand stitch each letter onto the background with some black thread…

I like how it enhances the homemade feel of the card. To create that background, I did layers and layers of pink and orange watercolor, letting it dry before each new layer. Here is a closer look…

That greeting is from an all time favorite stamp set of mine that can be found HERE. I love how the font works with any style of card.
For the finishing details… I added some pink enamel dots to draw attention to the smaller greeting, adhered a black mat behind the watercolor piece, and adhered it to a pink notecard after stamping THIS background on it. 
I’m thinking those clear letters might be fun with some coloring behind it. I’ll have to try that. 
Well that’s it for today. I hope I’ve inspired you to try some simple hand stitching on your next card. Thanks so much for stopping by.
