Even though I still have a couple of card “styles” to make I was so ready to get into the second phase which is the sewing down of any loose elements, thread painting or decorative stitching and sewing them inside a photo card.
Here I am adding a sentiment to a vintage linen before stitching it into the photo card.
Then I choose a thread to stitch through the paper usually a variegated thread.
Then I choose a decorative stitch and sew through the card and the paper.
I sew them up and stack them high.
There are still a couple of more steps. More to come.
