Iris, cosmos and cornflowers stitched around a golden “THANKS” makes for a simple, but heartfelt thank you.
I used another stitched flower die from Spellbinders, this time the Small Die of the Month for April 2021. The die comes with separate letters to die cut the word “THANKS” as well as the larger background die cut with stitching holes. Using very heavy pale blue cardstock, I die-cut the large piece to be stitched. I had a piece of junk mail that had large sections of matte gold and I die-cut the letters from that.
The larger flower petals and leaves were outline or chain stitched before filling in the centers of them using three strands of floss. The yellow stamens are French knots. While I knotted the floss ends when starting, I finished the flowers on the back side by adding dots of glue to seal the thread ends and add dimension to the stitched frame.
After gluing the gold letters on the front of the stitched piece, I added foam squares with glue to back side of the stitched piece behind the letters and attached to the front of the card base. The card base is an 8 x8 inches sheet of heavy white card stock folded in half using a scoring board.
