Hello Everyone! It's Amber here with a Tutorial Tuesday post. Today is my Birthday so I thought I would share a Birthday Card and Tag. For this weeks tutorial I'm sharing a quick and simple faux stitching technique. I'm using the technique to create a banner today.
See those black lines I used for my banner...its faux stitching. Not everyone has the time or the patience to hand stitch or machine stitch so this is an easy way to add stitching to any project. All you need is an ink pad and a sewing pattern tracing wheel. These come in most sewing kits and can be found at any craft store in the sewing notions aisles. Below you will see the four steps I used to create my Birthday card.
Step 1. Grab an ink pad and repeatedly roll the tracing wheel over the ink pad until the wheel is fully covered.
Step 2. Roll it onto the card front or cardstock you are going to use. I repeated this 3 times.
Step 3.Stamp you sentiment onto your card front below the banner line and then on a scrap piece of cardstock stamp your banner triangles.
Step 4. Color, add glitter, cut, and add your banner triangles to your banner line.
It really is as easy as that. There are many things you can do with this faux stitching technique like make stitching lines over your patterned paper or cardstock, make lined and grid backgrounds, and make hearts or other shapes with the wheel. I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today and Thanks for visiting!.
