Sweet Threads Simply Sent Card Kit

I have been one creative, busy, productive girl these days. (productive could be questioned!) Could have something to do with the fact that I quit my part time job and have some more time on my hands. Such a fantastic feeling.

I recieved the new Seasonal Catalogue which is available to purchase from on the 1st February. Stampin' Up! is celebrating making a difference for 25 years. Its really is incredible that Shelli Gardner started Stampin' Up! 25 years ago because she has a love for craft like us. I am getting very excited about meeting her in the flesh this year!

One of the products in the new seasonal catalogue that jumped out at me was the sweet threads simply sent card kit. I have in the past done cross-stitching and love it! I also in the past made cards with cross stitching and when I saw this kit I had to have it. Last night I got to make a card using the kit and put a bit of my own twist on it. I still kept it very simple though.



The only thing that I added was the basic pearls (119247) and a square of whisper white 7cm x 8.5cm and then a piece of Primrose Petals 6.5cm x 8cm. The sentiment is from the Kindness Matters stamp set (124992w/122902c).

Some tips I can give you are it is recommended to use all 6 strands of cotton for the design. I found that it was a bit too bulky and reduced my pattern to 3 strands. I feel that it has come up much neater and you can see the actual cross stitch better too.
