Stitch the card using the method illustrated and described in our Form-A-Lines stitching demo. This uses the dragonfly from the Form-A-Lines Riverside kit but the method is the same.

These pattern details should be used in conjunction with the Stitching Demo.

Add a gold greetings sticker of your choice.

This pattern can also be stitched on parchment with the petal and leaf shapes embossed. If translucent parchment is used then tape used to secure the thread on the back of the parchment may show. To avoid this happening leave a length of thread hanging to start with. Secure this by stitching it into the work at the back of the parchment as the stitching progresses.

Product availability

We regret that we are unable to advise the reader of a source of supply for the materials used in the projects on the Card Making Inspirations web site.

The layouts and techniques used in these projects are timeless. However, products such as stamps, stickers and patterned papers are quickly discontinued to be replaced by new items. When this happens we suggest that there is a lot of satisfaction in finding an alternative product that suits the design.
