Cross Stitched Love with Lace

More card embroidery to create a nostalgic lace-trimmed "love" card.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) autumn rose, scarlet jewel (burgundy), and the damask print from PTI autumn rose pattern pack.  In real life, the solid and printed rose colors are the same. 
  • Embroidery floss is DMC ecru (cream) and 902.
  • Lace is white crocheted lace from Hobby Lobby, colored lightly with Copic marker YR30 to match the cream floss - a very good match in real life.
  • Die is PTI strip stitch.
Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (393)
