Today is my nephews wife's birthday. She has just started to cross-stitch and asked for some advice to get her started. I wish so much that we didn't live so far from family it sure would have been fun to share with her in person how to do it and sit and stitch together :) I had won this stamp and die set from Taylored Expressions so it is the first thing I thought to use for her birthday.
Using the MISTI to stamp it sure did help. I used my Specturm Aqua markers to color the stamp itself before stamping it onto my paper.
For the sentiment and the floss I used another set that I got free from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. This crafty paper worked perfect with the stitched theme of the card too :)
