When I saw this color palette for PDCC, I thought "no problem!" NOT! My brain just refused to work with red, pink, and white. I'd almost decided not to try when this idea popped into my head. I just used this stitch pattern on another project and loved the look of it. It was a freebie I found on a UK online shop called Stitching Cards last year. It's still there if you'd like to grab it. Can you tell I love to try out new techniques? LOL
This is a large card. It measures 5 1/2" x 8". If I did it again I would probably shrink the stitch pattern down some, but after stitching for a couple of hours late last night, I was not about to start over again. Stitching is not hard just time consuming, but I have to tell you, that punched border was a headache. I'm not sure if that punch has a matching corner punch or not, but I don't have it. So I had to figure out how to get the sides to line up evenly. I think it took me about four tries to finally get it even on all sides. I'm happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it too.
