Stitched Bird Baby Card

Hi everyone,
I have been MIA for a while. It is Fair time and we are working very hard to get all the 4-H projects completed and ready to be turned in this week. Every year we say we will start them all earlier in the year and every year we are working up to the last second. This year actually has been calmer than past years, but still very busy. I hope to be able to post some new creations thoughout this week.
Here is a baby card I made for some friends who are celebrating the arrival of their sweet new bundle of joy. After the PTI Blog Hop, where I stiched the apple, I realized this technique was not as hard as I thought it would be so here is a second attempt. I used a stich-on template kit that I bought on clearance from Michaels by K and Company. I had bought some stiching templates a while back from OTC and their template did not have holes and I am not sure how to go about creating holes that are not too large. If anyone has any ideas please leave me a comment below.
This card otherwise is fairly straight forward. The sentiment is from PTIs Bird Watching set. I used the Fiskars border punch at the bottom of the card. I punched a flower out of dp and placed a PTI button in the center.
The fingers are my sweet son's. I had remembered as we arrived to give the gift that I did not take a photo of the card, I did have my camera with me so my son held the card and voila.
Thank you for stopping by and looking and I would love it if you would leave me a comment.

  1. Love this card! The colors are so bright and cheery. The stitching adds such wonderful detail. I'm going to have to try that sometime.
