Adding some real stitching to a card

It is time for a new project for the Christmas Bingo Challenge – which has now morphed into an All Occasions BINGO challenge. This means that any occasion and not just Christmas projects are now accepted for the challenge. The requirements of the three elements from a column still remains in place, but the project no longer has to be Christmas related. I opted to keep going with Christmas as it does help to top up my card stash for when Christmas comes round again.

Using column O from the chart

I opted to go with column O from the current chart and chose the three items Layers, Stitching (Real or Faux) and Rectangle. I have this wonderful die from Waffle Flower called the Stitchable Pinking Circle Die that cuts a very pretty circle with an abundance of holes that allows one to stitch any desired design. I cut two of these out of pink cardstock and glued them together to give the die a bit more stability for stitching. Using DMC Light Effects floss in both pink and holographic, I stitched out a star in the space. I used three threads of the floss to prevent it getting too thick. This covered the Stitching element of the challenge.

Layers and rectangles for the sentiment

For the Layers and Rectangles parts of the challenge, I cut two rectangles, one from holographic cardstock and one from a light pink cardstock. Then, using a Spellbinders text die set, I cut the words Merry Christmas twice and glued them together. I added the stitched star to the top of the card and the sentiment element to the bottom of the card after adhering a textured cardstock cardpanel to the front of a side-folding A2 notecard.

Looking forward to seeing you

The new name for our challenge is Christmas [or not] BINGO Challenge and with such a wide scope now, I would like to invite you to play along with us. The challenge goes for 6 weeks and so you have plenty of time to enter. I look forward to seeing you there.

  1. Monica, this is such a great card! I’ve seen those dies that allow you to stitch on paper but never sure how well they worked. Yours is amazing! It’s nice to be on the Christmas (or not) BINGO Challenges Design team. Have a great day and a wonderful 2024 too!
