"Stitching" The theme for us this week at "My Sheri Crafts"
So I got out my sewing machine, dusted it off. After moving and being in storage much to my surprise, it still worked.

I started off with a beige card base, covered it in 2 pieces of quality cardstock. Do not adhere it yet. Choose 3 different colors of cardstock and make different sized stitches top to bottom of each color. Cut at different widths.
Cut those stitched papers to fit the top section. Now adhere the bottom to the card base. Then take each strip of choice and adhere to the top paper. Adhere a coordinating ribbon in the middle of the papers (hides the edges of the stitching) My tag is cut from the Cricut cartridge Winter Woodland. (1 cut at 2 1/2 and 1 at 2 1/4) Sentiment is stamped from Stampabilities (Holiday Sentiments) Evergreen punch is from Martha Stewart. Buttons have ribbons tied in the center and adhered. The sleigh is also a button with the hook cut off the back, and adhere with a good thick glue. This card takes a while to make, but I think it turned out nice!
