I just love this sampler-style cross stitch design. I think I stitched it in January of last year, right after Christmas 2012. I chose a dark blue colour for the card base and did some simple layering using shiny red cardstock. The stitching was attached to the card using foam glue.
I love the bits of metallic thread!
Keeping the shiny thing going on, I added a gold panel as well as a strip of shiny red cardstock to the inside of the card.
