Pinking Stitches

Creating Keepsakes magazine inspired this card. The recent copy which was delivered to my door had an article about adding stitching to your papercrafts. I knew about most of the techniques they showed but as always, there's a lone gem of an idea that you've not heard of before. And so was the case with using pinking scissors to create a stitch effect. Just trim your paper and then place each piece down just a fraction apart. Simple & clever and I had to try it out. Love it :) What more can I say. Okay it doesn't look like stitching here but I liked the thicker line better. Look out for this effect in future projects, I can see my coming back to it again.
