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:
