Happy Hand-Stitched Rainbow {Lil' Inker Designs}

Welcome to Day 2 of the Lil' Inker Designs March 2015 Release Blog Hop! If you're just joining us, head to the Lil' Inker blog to start at the beginning! 

Today I have a rather time-consuming but worth-the-effort card to share with you! I am really a quick and simple kind of crafter, but every once in a while, I get something in my head, and I throw caution to the wind, spending way too much time on a project. So, welcome to the two-hour stitching card! After die-cutting the Cover Up Die: Pointelle from white cardstock, I began stitching through the holes using a rainbow of embroidery floss. After that, the rest was easy peasy. I stamped the sentiment on vellum and adhered it with a few tiny drops of clear glue. Then I diecut the stitched line into a thin strip of red cardstock, and added a sweet brad. 

Don't forget to comment during each day's hop, as a lucky winner from each day will enjoy a $15 Lil' Inker Designs store credit! Thanks so much for coming by today, and for participating in our hop! See you TOMORROW for one more day of hopping! xoxox
