A Stitched Sentiment tutorial

Hi there! I'm here today with a card (& a tutorial!) to share that I made using 

I started with three pieces of Scrumptious patterned paper: Frolic in the Leaves, New Harvest & a floral pattern from the 6x6 paper pad.



Here's my card:


I decided to use a diecut word as a template for my stitching.
Here's what I did:






Here's a close up of the finished stitched sentiment.


After I was done stitching, I added some strips of Scrumptious patterned paper.
I diecut the floral paper from the 6x6 paper pad with a heart border die and adhered it to my card.
I trimmed the "grateful for you" banner by hand (it was on the back of the New Harvest patterned paper.

Oh, and before I go, I just wanted to let you know that 
I also have a card up on the Bazzill Basics Blog today.


Can you guess what die I used to create my puzzle piece?

What a neat tutorial! I love the way your stitching turned out and your card is beautiful! I think the die on the last card is from Pretty Pink Posh. It looks like the one I have :) Great card too!

Fun tutorial, Leigh. You have shown me that I don't need a sewing machine to sew on my cards.
