Altenew | Faux Stitched Design with Cross Stitch Canvas Die

Hi, crafty friends!

Today, I want to share a card made using several Altenew newly released products.

Cross-stitching on cards has become very popular now. And I’m sure some of you got hooked on it. Or maybe cross-stitching is your other hobby (I mean “real” cross-stitching on canvas, not on paper). Then the new Cross Stitch Canvas Die might be interesting for you. It cuts an A2 panel with pierced dots which create 58 x 76 squares, allowing you to cross-stitch quite intricate patterns.

But it can also be used to create a faux cross-stitched design. It won’t look exactly as cross-stitched, but close enough. ;) Especially as it takes a fraction of the time to make than real cross-stitching.

I started my card with die-cutting a pierced panel using the mentioned die out of a Solar White Cardstock. Next, I stamped a floral design using the Sweet Rose Bouquet Stamp Set.

Flowers were stamped using the Tropical Forest Dye Inks and for the leaves and stems, I used the Rock Collection Dye Inks.

For the sentiment, I used the Miss You Word Die, die-cutting it out of a Solar White and Jet Black Cardstock. After that, I adhered the die-cuts together with a slight shift to create some kind of shadow. I didn’t like other colors for the sentiment than white (I tried olive, black, dark gray). But white would blend too much with the white background so adding a black “shadow” helped me get away with this.

I adhered the sentiment onto the panel using the glue tape and added several Onyx Crystals to accentuate the card.

Lastly, I foam mounted the panel onto a Dark Gray card base.

I personally really love cover dies and this one became one of my favorites. Even if you don’t care much about cross-stitching – take a closer look at it. I like the texture it creates; it’s very interesting and settled.

Have a wonderful day!

    Love how you reversed the colors! Svitlana, could you tell me if the layers are easy to line up.
    You had mentioned in a recent post that the hydrangea set is easy . I struggle with that one, so thought I should ask!

      Hi Linda. I totally understand your struggle with Hydrangea. At the very beginning I also have some troubles aligning it. But then found that “right spot”, those markers which help to align it properly. I think with this set (Hydrangea) there is a small learning curve.
      Sweet Rose Bouquet is much much easier to align. I didn’t even checked the guide when was adding layers. And don’t get me wrong – I’m the worst when it comes to aligning.
      Also this set is very forgiving. If you don’t alight perfectly it won’t be much visible. Many Altenew sets are forgiving (sadly Hydrangea is not). Hope this will help!
