In Stitches - Die Cut Team Design Challenge

Today we're kicking off a new design team challenge on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.  This month it's all about in stitches, so all of the design team members on the die cut team were challenged to create a card featuring anything with stitches. With the challenge in mind, I created a pretty Hello card featuring a few of the new dies from Moda Scrap and Els van de Burgt. You'll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you so that you can re-create my card at home as well as a giveaway from Elizabeth Craft Designs.


From the Stitched Rectangles die, die cut the 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" stitched rectangle out of patterned paper. Edge distress the edges of the stitched rectangle using an edge distressor. Using a blending tool, ink the edges of the stitched square using Black Soot Distress Ink.

From the Stitched Fishtail Banners, die cut the 3/4" stitched fishtail banners out of patterned paper. Edge distress the edges of the stitched fishtail banners using an edge distressor. Using a blending tool, ink the edges of the stitched square using Black Soot Distress Ink.


From the Stitched Circles die, die cut the 2 3/4" stitched circle out of patterned paper. Edge distress the edges of the stitched rectangle using an edge distressor. Using a blending tool, ink the edges of the stitched square using Black Soot Distress Ink.


From the Stitched Rectangles die, die cut the 2 1/4" stitched circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using the "Hello" sentiment, from the General Sentiments stamp, apply Dusty Concord Distress Ink to the "Hello" sentiment and stamp onto the middle of the circle. Edge distress the edges of the stitched rectangle using an edge distressor. Using a blending tool, ink the edges of the stitched square using Black Soot Distress Ink.


Die cut five leafy branches 3 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Use a blending tool and blend Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink overtop of each leafy branch.


Die cut five leafy branches 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Use a blending tool and blend Dusty Concord Distress Ink overtop of each leafy branch.


From the Pair of Leaves 2 die, die cut three of each of the leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.




From the Happy Flowers die, die cut three of the small flowers out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Use a blending tool and blend Spun Sugar Distress Ink overtop of each flower.


Adhere the 4" stitched rectangle to the 4 1/2" stitched rectangle. 


Adhere the stitched fishtail banners to the middle of the 4" stitched rectangle. On the bottom right hand side of the 4" stitched rectangle, adhere two green leaves, one of each of the pair of leaves and two purple leaves. You'll want to trim off the stems on the leaves.


On the top left hand side of the 4" stitched rectangle, adhere three green leaves, one of each of the pair of leaves and three purple leaves. You'll want to trim off the stems on the leaves.


Adhere the "Hello" stitched circle to the patterned paper stitched circle. Foam square the patterned paper stitched circle in between the two sets of leaves.


To finish off the flowers, adhere a black circle to each of the middles of the flowers. Adhere the three flowers to the left hand side of the Hello stitched circle. 


Adhere the card front to your cardbase.


Here are a few close up photos of my finished card.
