As promised, from yesterday's post, I'm going to show you how to acheive a faux stitched look. That's right, no sewing machine needed, although it certainly will look like you took one out when you're done.
You're going to need the Stampin' Pierce Mat (126199), Paper-Piercing Tool (126189), Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (126187) and White uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (105021).
Place your card stock on top of your piercing mat and the piercing template on top of your card stock as shown. There are 3 piercing templates that come in a package. For this card I'm using the one with the grids, shown above.
Starting from the corner, pierce every other hole, along the outer line.
Using your white gel pen, start "stitching", connecting from one hole to the next. Yes, it is THAT EASY!
Here's another completed card with this fun techique and using the $5.00 Reason To Smile stamp set.
That's right - don't forget to order your Reason To Smile for just $5.00 with a minimum $50.00 order, special for this month only.
