Embroidery Birthday Card for CC2C

It’s time for another cross country stamping adventure.  Karen Hallam in CA and myself here in PA are enjoying collaborating once a month by CASEing (Copying and Selectively Editing) each other projects.  This month, Karen chose our direction and we’ll be working with this sketch…

And here is Karen’s take on the sketch…

For my interpretation of the sketch, I decided to incorporate my two favorite hobbies:  stamping and cross-stitch by creating this birthday card for a fellow cross-stitcher friend…

While browsing stamping products online, I came across a paper collection with beautiful floral prints as well as these fantastic cross-stitch or embroidery motifs.  It’s called Embroidery by Paper Rose and I just love it.  I’m also embellishing my cross-stitching journal, which I keep with details of all my stitching projects, with these images.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card…

The sentiment is from the retired Stampin’ Up! set, Best Year.  I cut a few more images from the patterned paper for a little embellishment.

Thanks for joining Karen and I on our monthly creative cross country adventure.

Take care,

  1. Beautiful, Rosanne! And it works perfectly with the sketch! Once, a lifetime ago, I was a big cross-stitcher ~ I did many projects, then moved on to new crafts. So I love this set you’ve used. See you next month!
