Faux Stitched Design with Cross Stitch Canvas Die

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hi, crafty friends!

Svitlana is here today. How did you like our recent release? Do you have any favorites? For me, choosing a favorite is a hard job as I love everything Altenew. And every time I see what our amazing design team creates, my love only increases.

Today, I want to share a card made using several newly released products.

Cross-stitching on cards has become very popular now. And I’m sure some of you got hooked on it. Or maybe cross-stitching is your other hobby (I mean “real” cross-stitching on canvas, not on paper). Then the new Cross Stitch Canvas Die might be interesting for you. It cuts an A2 panel with pierced dots which create 58 x 76 squares, allowing you to cross-stitch quite intricate patterns.

But it can also be used to create a faux cross-stitched design. It won't look exactly as cross-stitched, but close enough. ;) Especially as it takes a fraction of the time to make than real cross-stitching.

I started my card with die-cutting a pierced panel using the mentioned die out of a Solar White Cardstock. Next, I stamped a floral design using the Sweet Rose Bouquet Stamp Set.

Flowers were stamped using the Tropical Forest Dye Inks and for the leaves and stems, I used the Rock Collection Dye Ink.

For the sentiment, I used the Miss You Word Die, die-cutting it out of a Solar White and Jet Black Cardstock. After that, I adhered the die-cuts together with a slight shift to create some kind of shadow. I didn't like other colors for the sentiment than white (I tried olive, black, dark gray). But white would blend too much with the white background so adding a black “shadow” helped me get away with this.

I adhered the sentiment onto the panel using the glue tape and added several black crystals to accentuate the card.

Lastly, I foam mounted the panel onto a Dark Gray card base.

I personally really love cover dies and this one became one of my favorites. Even if you don't care much about cross-stitching – take a closer look at it. I like the texture it creates; it's very interesting and settled.

Have a wonderful day!

This is such a pretty card. I have a question Svitlana– are the layers of the Sweet Rose Bouquet set easy to line up ? On another post you mentioned the hydrangea set was easy to line up — I have a terrible time with it.

Thank you, Linda!
This set aligns much more easier and it’s very forgiving!
I don’t have much problems with Hydrangea, but this set is definitely easier to work with.

Gorgeous card. The colors are beautiful together. If I cross stitch, I prefer to stitch on linen and create samplers, but this is a pretty look for cards!
