Hey, hi! I have a post up on the Altenew Card Blog today and wanted to link it here as well for you to check out! Today’s card is one that checks a few Zen-like, soothing, therapeutic activity boxes for me, with a very simple design, a favorite color scheme and STITCHING!! I’m always here for the needle and thread crafts and today I managed to combine it with a greeting card!

I used the Dotted Swirls Debossing Die to make the pattern on Neenah cardstock, then I stitched the whole panel with the variegated thread pictured above. I die cut one layer of the Waterbrush Hello Die and several more layers of white cardstock to stack behind. The secondary sentiment is from the Hello & Hugs stamp set and the enamel dots are from the Our Family enamel dots pack.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day! I’d love to hear your thoughts on the mental-health benefits (or stresses?), of hand-stitching on paper! Is it for you? Yay or nay?
