Cards for the Contest

(Husband Note: They made it to Russia just fine. Tired after the long trip but one of the first things she asked about was this blog! 🙂 )

Shoe CardToday I wanted to show some cross-stitched cards that I made for the contest on the Russian Craft Forum. I didn’t win anything… I was a little bit upset about this. But I love these cards anyway.

My favorite is the card with shoe Celebrate Spring. It was cross-stitched on a very small sized canvas. The background paper was stamped with a flower acrylic stamp.

Purse Card

The purse shaped card is also cute. I love the little shoes on the purse that I cross-stitched.

For Mom

On the card “For Mom” I made little charms from stickers. To make them not sticky I rubbed baby powder on the sticky side and the stickiness disappeared. I attached them with small jump-rings to the base of the main design of the card.

Hope you found something interesting for you today!

Thank you for stopping by!

    Elena, Hi – Wow you are posting while you are away. I’m glad your hubby was willing to post for you.

    I’ve nominated you for a blog award: See my post here for details:

    You did a great job on your cards. I think it’s wonderful that you incorporate other crafts (like the cross stitching) into your cards. The shoe card is very pretty. – Hugs, Ida

    Ты изумительно вышиваешь, а уж эти работы выше всех похвал! Я дилетант в этом виде рукоделия, я даже пуговицу пришить толково не умею, но я прекрасно осознаю, какой кропотливый труд стоит за этими невероятно аккуратными вышивками.
