One of the Papertrey Ink November release group post projects was using the new Stitches & Swirls set. The design team has shared so many of the different ways using this lovely set from focal images to different stamping techniques.
The great thing about a set like this is that it translates into something that can be bold and up front as well as soft and in the background. I used the set as a background for my card project. My card has a holiday theme, but Stitches and Swirls will work for so many occasions.
I stamped the stitches and swirls in Chai ink onto Rustic Cream cardstock and then inked the edges with the Chamomile ink - both the Chai and Chamomile inks are from the Tea Dye Duo set. I layered the Quatrefoil die that I trimmed in half on the bottom half of the card (I used spray adhesive to attach it) and love the look of the stamped background layered underneath.
I used a Mat Stack die to add my sentiment to the card and added some Stiches and Swirls in Vintage Cream ink - I reverse look from the card background. I added a bit of Winterberry to the card front using my new Winterberry dies that debuted this month.
The Winterberry die collection includes dies for the branch, tree, and sprig images in the set. It retails for $6.
You can see all of the projects that the rest of the design team created by checking out their blog posts for this project: Nichole, Betsy, Ashley, Danielle, Dawn, Erin, Jessica, Lisa, Maile, and Melissa.
