Hi crafters. The current Paper Smooches challenge is ‘happy things’. It may not be obvious why a kraft card is happy, but this card makes me happy. I decided to make a stitched frame with a die from the Stitch builder dies. I used a T ruler to place the die on the kraft panel. I then cut it again at a right angle, again checking with the T ruler so it didn’t get wonky. Once the frame was cut I stamped Botanicals 2 images inside the frame with ground espresso distress ink. I restamped over this to emboss the images with Hero Arts sparkle embossing powder. This sparkle has lovely iridescent specks in it. As the sparkle was mainly blue and green colours, I changed my plans and stitched the frame with these colours to match. At the same time that I stamped the Botanicals, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Sentiment Sampler stamp set. The sparkles, the stitching and the cute font make me happy.
