Spellbinders Small Die of the Month-June
As I noted on Instagram, I am afraid I will always be late posting a card I have created with any Spellbinders Kit of the Month. Postage can take a wee while from the US to Canada, but during these Covid times, snail mail can be ridiculously long!
These cards were created using the Small Die of the Month for April. In my younger days I used to be avid machine sewer, dressmaking/curtains etc, but I did dab in a bit of embroidery too.
This die was kind of unique and I thought it would be really handy to die cut four, glue two together to ensure a solid canvas, and embroider them while glamping. Yes, glamping, not camping. I tried that a few times and I can not bear the thought of crawling out of a tent on my hands and knees now I am over 50!
I popped in to Michaels to get specific embroidery cotton colours for these. If you buy bulk packs you can get tons of colours, but I know I would never use half of them. I like pretty and soft colour combos usually, so these cards were my choices.
My thoughts on making these cards were, 'wow, the recipient must be well worth saying thanks to for the work put into these' 😂
One thing though, it was great therapy and in the end I really quite enjoyed the experience, especially while enjoying a glass of Prosecco!
Watch out, because a framed embroidery die was released, so I may try my hand at those too.
Take care and bye for now
