I really wanted to do something unusual for this day, to use Altenew dies a little not in the traditional way. So the idea with embroidery, yes, natural cross stitch, so that the card could not only be seen, but it is pleasant to feel.

And my choice fell on my favorite Sewn with Love Stamp Set with Sewn with Love Die Set.


But of course, for my card I took only a Sewn with Love Die Set, and the image scheme of the flower used from a set of stamps.


I started with preparing the stitching panel — die cut flowers on the cream card stock. The meaning of this die is not in the cutting of elements, as we are used to - it makes holes for embroidery or stamping with imitation embroidery.
Also I thought about the color scheme. It was important to choose a palette so that the colors passed from each other, creating layers, as in multi-layer stamping. 

When I finished the stitching, I adhered my panel to the card base. But first I fixed it around the perimeter with glue. This helped me to fix the embroidery so that when I cut the panel on the edges, nothing fell, and the image turned out perfect!
And also I added "YOU" sentiment die cut it using the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set in white.  I also added a sentiment "You are the best", taken from the same set and decorated the card with crystals.

Thank you for visiting the my stop in the hop! Head on over to your next stop, Heidi Jakobs!
