EMPATHY CARD FOR A FRIEND - I THINK STAMPIN' UP! SHOULD HIRE ME - NEEDLEPOINT NOOK DSP

Hiya, Stampers!
     I have a friend who is going through some aggravating times right now, so I hope she gets a chuckle out of this card.  (I hope she doesn't read my blog, because I haven't mailed it yet - I'm pretty sure she doesn't - she's not a crafter or stamper.)
     I couldn't resist these puns, I think that's what they are, anyway.  I created the sentiments in Word.  The inside sentiment says, "Sew sorry times are tough right now."  ;-)  They made me smile.  Details on my Blog.

Happy Stampin’!

Measurements
Petal Pink CS - 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, score at 4-1/4;
Galvanized Metallic Paper, at least 3" square for circle mat (embroidery hoop) (Silver Foil also works fine);
WW scrap for whatever sentiment you choose
Tiny scrap of Silver foil for "embroidery hoop screw," scrap of any CS to mount circles
Needlepoint Nook DSP - 3" square for embroidery circle, one piece 2-1/2 x 5-1/2 and a second piece 3-1/4 x 5-1/2 for layering
WW Baker's Twine or string - enough to wrap and add a bow

Instructions
  • Die cut Galvanized Metallic ring using Layering Circles Framelits - use 2nd largest, then 3rd largest of the plain circles - I had to cut mine in two stages as the dies fit together a little too tight.to cut the ring all at once.
  • Die cut dense crewel-work piece with 3rd largest plain circle die - layer both DSP and ring on a CS circle cut with the 2nd largest die for stability.
  • Adhere chosen 2-1/2" layer of DSP to 3-1/4" layer and wrap and tape string around it before attaching to card base, then tie a bow onto it - stabilize with glue dot
  • Optional:  If you have it, use the door handle die from the Sliding Door Framelits to die cut a little "screw" from silver foil and add to top of ring with a rolled glue dot.
  • If desired, add a few Needlepoint Nook Mini Buttons.  (I added mine to the center of some of the crewel flowers - I don't think I would do that again.  I'd add them elsewhere - maybe three in an upper or lower corner.)
  • Add embroidery ring to front of base with Dimensionals.  I cut out my Word sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (3rd largest oval) and popped up on Dimensionals, as well.
