My Time To Craft 'Stitching' Challenge

Good morning everyone. The wind finally subsided yesterday but boy did it get colder. The sun is shining now so I hope it will remain for all of us.

This week at My Time To Craft we are being challenged to 'Use Stitching' on our creations, this can be real or faux. I am not one to normally add stitching in fact I have only ever done it once before and that was for a design team challenge and that time I actually used my sewing machine. This time however I went with the faux kind.

For my card I cut all my elements on my Silhouette Cameo and created an internal offset to each piece which I changed to a perforated line and used my glitter pens in the machine to draw instead of cutting. I added the happy birthday with the glitter pen too. I used one of my old favourite Elisabeth Bell image's which was also the first stamp I ever brought from Sugar Nellie and this brand new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder for the embossing. I didn't know how good those folders would be that turn inside out for another pattern but as you can see they emboss lovely. Not much to this card at all.
