Beautiful Day

This card resulted from a conversation with my friend about whether or not the Hemstitch dies were large enough to thread ribbon or floss through.  I can verify that floss is a big yes - we'll reserve judgement on ribbon until I can try that another time.

supplies: white, various brick red and green card stock, Simon Beautiful Day sentiment, Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle and Altenew Rose Flurries dies, WeRMemoryKeepers Sew Easy red floss, adhesive strips

I die-cut a medium Hemstitch rectangle from a slightly smaller than A2 size card panel, after having made certain that my stamped sentiment would fit inside.  After stamping it, I did my stitching, securing the floss ends inside with a piece of tape, then constructed my Rose Flurries flowers and leaves, popping up a couple of the flower layers, and arranged them around the sentiment.  

I was also trying to decide if I really "need" the new Garden Picks dies, since I already own these Rose Flurries dies.  For now (and I may eat my words) I think I'm content with what I have.  

As always, thanks for stopping by!

very pretty. I think I NEED that hemstitch die! I'm like you, in two minds about the new dies... I don't have the Rose Flurries but do have Fantasy Floral dies.

Oh, Lin! This is a gorgeous card! I LOVE it and love how you've used the die with the floss. Stunning arrangement of these 3D dies, and I know what you mean about the other dies. Haha! Yes, I think these are perfect -- for now! But they sure are tempting. So you keep using this set and delighting us for a while! Warm and sunny hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
