A big thank you to Michele and the Girl Fridays for choosing my card this week!
CFC81: Create a Clean And Simple project that features a knot or knots.
Knotty or nice? Well, I definitely chose 'knotty' with this card! In fact, there are over 150 hand stitched wee French Knots....actually there could be more but I got lost counting half way around the tree!
Stamped the tree (Penny Black 'Majestic') with Momento Tuxedo Black, stitched the french knots with DMC embroidery cotton, stamped the sentiment with SU Real Red (although it almost looks brown in the photo) and mounted on to Real Red card stock. Finished of the tree with a wee red rhinestone at the top.
The knots took about 3 hours to stitch. Other than that, this is probably the fastest I have completed in card EVER!!! I always fuss way too much :)
Why 'knot' pop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Blog and check out all the amazing projects?
