Christmas Stitches CSAYL #29

At Christmas Stampin' All Year Long  (CSAYL) this week it's a stitch challenge.  Oh dear!  You know I have neither the skill nor the inclination for sewing, so why am I doing this one?!  Well, Christmas Cards for Our Australian Armed Forces is only a couple of months away and I need to stay focused!

Solution?  Faux stitches!

This was a super easy card because all the elements came together really well with the most fussy bit being the paper piercing for the stitches.  Even that was pretty good with the use of Stampin' Up'!s piercing template.

Please don't look too closely at my marker-on-washi- technique.  It's a bit slippery to work on and not up to standard!

Supplies used:
Stamp Set - Greetings of the Season
Cardstock - Crumb Cake & Very Vanilla
Ink - Cherry Cobbler Classic and the matching  marker for the stitching
Northern Flurry embossing folder and the Big Shot
Paper Piercer & Essentials Piercing Template
Washi Tape - sneaky peeky from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue
Rhinestone Jewels

Have you had your craft fix today?
