This week's challenge over at the Gingersnap Creations blog is "stitching." You can see a variety of wonderful projects at this link. Since I'm sewing challenged, I decided to create this card with one of my favorite stitching techniques: corner lacing. When I want to use this technique, I start with a template like this one:
I use it to punch holes into the paper I will lace on. Then I pull waxed linen thread or other fiber in and out of the holes in alphabetical order. It's quite easy, and I love the effect it gives. Let me know if you give it a try; I'd love to see the results.
