These cards were made from the leftovers of the floral paper I used to make the apron cards and carried the stitching idea. The bunny is a Sizzix die cut from a multi-occasion pack. The flowers are made with random punches that I had. Clearly, I need to invest in embroidery floss as the white thread gets a tad lost. nonetheless, these guys are cute enough.

I may retake these pictures as the colors were really washed out by the flash. I heard someone mention a "natural light" lamp that they use for youtube video-making, so I may look into something like that. Even though I finished these cards yesterday, I didn't take pictures until long after the sun went down. This card is adapted from a template found in Papercraft Inspirations Issue 69 (January 2010) with a download here of the apron. The egg-shaped letters were punched using a sizzix die. I did the stitching by hand, although the mag contemplates use of a sewing machine. One card is more three-dimensional as I used thicker foam tape more liberally than on the other.
