Why Hasn't Someone Thought of This Die Before?

Welcome :) Lovely to see you here.  Well, today I have another card to share, inspired by this week's CAS(e) This Sketch challenge.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:

Apologies for the poor photography skills here. I haven't quite managed to get the exposure right with the reflective metallic silver card I used.

That aside. What do you think of the stitched edging effect. Freakin' amazing! I love it. It's created using a Stitched Frame Die from Lil' Inkers. When I saw it being used on other cardmakers' blogs, I just had to have it. Trouble was, it was out of stock. However, I put myself down on a waiting list and hey presto, this week, my package arrived all the way from America. Think I'll be using this set A LOT!

Can't believe no one has thought to produce this effect for a die before?

Materials Used
- Card: Red, Silver, Black
- Stitched Frame die from Lil Inkers Designs
- Sentiment Stamp, Unknown
- Chandelier Stamp: Inkadinkado

Great card and that die is brilliant. Do they do other sizes I'm wondering. Hope they'll be available in the UK sometime soon.

I haven't seen this die being used before - it looks fab! x

Me neither! My first thought before I read on was "Gosh, Paul's stitching is neat!" They could do a whole range from super neat like this to several rows back and for ith loose threads showing ... I'd be in the queue!

Oh, I like that. I need an excuse to use my Big Shot as I almost never get it out.

And what are you talking about? Your photo looks great as they always do.

Ahhhhh I see it now, great choice for the sketch, so original anc classic with some elgant chic thrown in for good measure.

...I think I went too way out there this time.... LOL, that is what makes challenges so fun!
