Cross Stitch cards – Altenew

I recently purchased the Sewn with Love stamp set and die from Altenew.  This is a layered stamp that mimics the look of Cross Stitch. What is totally amazing about this set is that the matching die is not a die at all but rather serves to add pinpoints to the image.  The result is a stunningly realistic cross stitch looking image.

Now for the bad news.  I must be cross stitchally (?) challenged, as I did not find this set “easy” to line up in spite of many reassurances from tutorials on the internet.   In fact, my craft room could now be wallpapered in a slightly askew cross stitch pattern as I have that many rejects.   All is well that ends well though, and I did get the hang of it eventually.

Take a look at these two great looking cards:
