Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #554 Needle & Thread

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a sketch.


Don't you just love this sketch.  At first I thought it would be hard, but it was really easy just to plug in some flowers.  I chose to use the stamp set Needle & Thread from page 39 in the Occasions Catalog.  There are also some great samples with this bundle on page 38.  Yes, this set does have the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies that coordinate.

The card base is Lemon Lime Twist measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  Do you see the beautiful stitching on the base of the card?  It's made using the framelits!  I put the larger flower and leaves on the top left and the little curlies at the bottom right.

The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper also coordinates in this suite.  I used the largest of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits of the four that nest together.  Add to the bottom center of the base.

The largest flower is stamped in Berry Burst.  These stamps are part of the Stampin' Up! offerings of the Distinkive stamps that show so much detail.  They are marvelous.  The three smaller flowers are in Balmy Blue.  the greenery is actually one large stamp with a space for a flower.  I just cut it in half and used one with the largest flower and another with the lower right flower.

The saying is from the Needle & Thread set stamped in Berry Burst on white scrap.  Cut this out with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

So here is the inside of the card.  It's all part of the Needle & Thread set and is stamped directly to the insert.  Easy!

I made this card first in Whisper White.  Here is that card.

Everything is exactly the same except for the base.  I just can't decide which card I like best.  I, myself, am drawn to the Whisper White, but I know the Lemon Lime Twist is much more colorful.  Which do you like?
