Christmas Card

I am just getting into paper piercing and found this pattern for a star which I sewed and then turned into a card.  It took a long time and I'm not sure I'd make too many, but it was fun.  I used thick cardstock (GinaK) a sharp, tiny needle and 1 strand of embroidery thread.  I think next time I might use two strands.  I also think the leaves should be outlined with a contrasting color of thread.  Next time!


  1. That came out great - I love string art ;)

  2. Fabulous - I love seeing stitching on cards & layouts and your spirella leaves are great!!!
