Something New...Paper Stitching

As if I don't have enough crafts that I already do I have discovered paper stitching. It's so much fun to do and it's something I can do while watching football :) Another good thing is I already had all of the supplies exept for the patterns and they are really inexpensive.

The patterns are simply the image in dots. You print it out and lay it over your cardstock and punch the dots with a needle. Then using the pattern you stitch the image. I use DMC cross stitch thread.

I found the best place for patterns is here and here. I love that you just download them and don't have to wait.

My dear friend Lesley told to me link this up to this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge so did (thanks Lesley).

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Way back when I used to love to do cross-stitch, but I never thought to do something similar to a card! The look is beautiful!

  7. This is beautiful. I'd imagine it took some time, and certainly a lot of effort, but the results are so lovely. Light and airy. Just sweet. Bev

  12. I've been paperstitching since 1997, so it's not really a new technic but I must say your card is very nice.
    I hope to see more of them. It is a very relaxing way of cardmaking!
    Love from Holland, Mimi
