New Home Card

This card measures 11cm x 15cm and is made using a white linen effect,  hand cut blank.

So I took a few scraps of paper,  making a template for the hill, so that when I want to make a few more repeat cards it will make the process quicker.

Ok ……………. so my stitching is a bit wobbly ….. but then,  I would say it was a deliberate move to add a the simple shabby chic charm wouldn’t I???
