Dazzling Stitched Butterflies

I love to stitch on paper. It adds such a pretty look to the project when hand sewn and machine sewing makes it look so neat.

Today, I decided to used some of my Peel-off sewing stickers, which I have had for quite some time. They make the stitching quite simple with the directions on the back. All you need to do us adhere the sticker to you paper, stitch with embroidery floss and cut out.

You can find these at Paper Wishes and Pop-ups transparent stickers. Here is the set that I used.

Since I did not want to distract from the stitching I kept the card very simple. I also used other outline stickers to further decorate the card to match the butterfly outlines. I did adhere them with demensionals to add a bit of pop to the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Your stitched butterflies look stunning.

You asked about the heart ribbon slider on my daughter's birthday card - I bought them at a local craft store.
Love, Andrea xx
