Stitching Cut File 1 of 36: Flower Background

Wednesday, March 1, 2023

For my layout, I cut the Flower Background onto white cardstock and then used lots of colors of thread that match Blooming Wild to do a chain link stitch through each petal. Each petal took about 6 minutes to stitch and there are 132 petals. Once I finished stitching, I trimmed about 1/4" from each side and then replaced the edges with strips of rainbow striped Paper 10. In the center I added a 3x4" photo matted with Floral Die Cuts and topped with a Puffy Phrase Sticker, butterfly & bird Ephemera Die CutsMini Flower Puffy Stickers, and a little journaling on a label sticker from the Sticker Book. In the gaps between some of the flowers I glued a small Flower Charm. I love all the colors and flowers!

Here is another layout made with today's Flower Background from the 36 Cut Files for Stitching by Guest Designer Jessica Upton! She says, "I used the gorgeous Flower Background to stitch mostly light blue flowers in a chain link stitch along with just a few in navy with a backstitch. I put some enamel dots in the centers of the flowers - I love doing this to add even more dimension. I knew I wanted to use Paige’s Bungalow Lane collection (one of my very favorites) to document this photo of my oldest with her boyfriend and love how it turned out. I love adding hand stitching to my projects as it gives so much texture and a handmade look!"
