CASology Challenge #213: Stitch - 2nd Card by Bibi


Hi everyone! When I first joined this week's CASology challenge a couple of days ago (here), I started another card right afterwards. I just love the theme this week - STITCH - so here's my 2nd entry:


The only stamp used is the vintage spool from the Sew Sweet set. I stitched a black thread going from the spool thought the stitched frame (die from Elizabeth Craft Design), and the thread hangs loose up to the black button where I tied an extra knot. The text is computer made.


My card was made out of three different white cardstock (slightly different hues), and two of the panels were raised up with foam tape for added interest. I wrote a personal note inside and will place the card on my sweetheart's work desk so he'll see it when he comes home from work ♥
(This way, my card serves two purposes - maybe even three if I get lucky.... hawhaw!)

I'm entering my card to this challenge:




Thanks for looking!

 Love,
Bibi

    A great CAS card with lots of interest through layers. And SO white... especially for you Bibi!

  2. *chuckles* He's more likely to think "She must have joined another card challenge..." (yup, he knows me too well). Anyway - yes, it is very white for me! Hmmm, I wonder how more white I can go...
    Thanks, darling Craftyfield! ♥

  8. Hello Bibi: I was checking the CASology challenge to see if anybody entered more cards and yours just popped out of my screen!!! how beautiful the spool and black thread looks with the pristine white background!! I love that you actually stitched over the stitched die and connected this thread to the black button, this is such a beautiful detail.
    I'm Pinning your card, it's beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.
