With today being the first Monday of the month, it is time for another Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge! Designer Lisa Somerville is hosting KSCC#21 and has asked that we use stitching on our card for this month's challenge. My sewing machine is on permanent loan to my daughter-in-law since seamstress is not a hat that I wear, but I trotted across the street to my mother's house. She is the seamstress in our family so she has a machine that does all kinds of fancy stitches. I found one that looks just like my KSS pinecones!! How fun is that!!! I hate sewing fabric, but sewing paper is a blast!!
I need several masculine winter birthday cards this month so I thought this greenery and pinecones would work well for the guys in my life!
I stamped Layer 4 of the pine needles first in SU Handsome Hunter. I then added the pinecones and masked them. Next I stamped the remaining layers of pines.
