Hand-stitched Teacher card for H2H!

 
Here's a standard-size card that I created for the Heart 2 Heart blog challenge this week. The challenge was to include stitching of some kind on your creation. I chose to use some hand-stitching with black waxy flax. I didn't use a ruler or a guide of any kind to help me with the spacing of my stitching because I wanted it to look like it was really sewn by hand (and thus, not look too perfect, lol). The stamp set I used is School Rocks B1396 with the Typeset paper pack X7139B. Ink pad colors I used include Black, Cocoa, and Juniper (with Bamboo, Parchment, and Vineyard Berry markers for the coloring in of the school house). Teacher appreciation week is coming up in a few weeks, and because I know so many teachers (and am married to one!), I have been trying to think up some card ideas for them. I hope to come up with a few more "teacher appreciation" ideas that I can post and share again soon!

I love the card. The school house just jumps off the card. Great colour choices.
