PTI March Blog Hop! Spring Wishes from Lapland!





For the March Blog Hop at PTI we are challenged to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on

our projects. For my card I used it to make grass for my card Santa and his dear reindeer on their well deserved spring break!

I wrapped it around a piece of paper before sewing it onto my background. Then cut it off half way up for the fromt straws and trimmed the backstraws the length I wanted it.

I used the  Bitty Dot Basics paper and the stamps are from Daily design sentiments and Tiny Treats Christmas.
Have a nice day and a great Blog Hop, hugs Karin

Hi Karin! Super cute card. How creative to use fringe for the grass. And I love the idea that they're on Spring Break!!

Heeee, such a FUN idea, Karin! LOVE how you featured Santa frolicking in the meadow. I would do that, too, if it would stop snowing here in upstate NY for 5 minutes!! Totally unique and creative!

What a GREAT idea for you floss! And what a whimsical card, too, you have a great sense of humor :) I also love that your card is round, it really stands out in the bunch. Awesome job :)

Sylvia said...

What a great Spring break card. Love your grass! Thanks for your sweet message on my blog! Glad to have found you through the Moxie World!

I'm still going through the PTI blog hop. Fun idea for your card. The double layer of floss really allows Santa and his reindeer to frolic in the sun. That floss is gorgeous with a beautiful sheen to it. I don't know if it is your photography or materials, but they always look better than what we get here in the states.
