I’m not a seamstress, but I love using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to easily create stitching on paper. When I saw the challenge over at Less Is More, I wanted to participate. I needed to keep it clean and simple, while adding stitching.

I decided to stamp the deer from Carols of Christmas in five different colors: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Lemon Lime Twist, Real Red and Chocolate Chip. Isn’t he cute on the Very Vanilla cardstock?  He fit perfectly in the smallest of the Stitched Shapes square dies. I arranged the squares on the Tranquil Tide card base, leaving one spot for “With Love,” which I found in Tin of Tags. I used it quite a bit last Christmas, so I knew it fit this square. “From All of Us” fit the length of the largest Stitched Shape square. 

TIP: Turn the die around to get the right size rectangle with stitching on the bottom.


I attached the squares and sentiment with dimensionals, and that’s all there was to it. I didn’t even use the die for the deer that is pictured, keeping the requirements of the challenge in mind. This card would be an easy one to replicate.

Thanks for the challenge, Less Is More. I enjoyed playing along.  And, thanks for visiting my blog!
