Do you like stitching? the new challenge at House of Cards is for you -- and for all those who doesn't like sewing, no worries, we would love to see faux stitching too! 

Here my cards to inspire you.

For my first card, I took two die cut panels of cardstock and sewed them together onto the card.  On the yellow paper I retained the punched piece, but on the blue I removed it! - I love the contrast that it gives!

For my second card, I stuck washi tape at the bottom of the brown cardstock and traced a circle! Then I sewed around this circle a few time. After that, I removed all the washi that was outside of the circle - so the body of the bird was done!  It remained to sew the tail, beak and feet!
To finish the card, I glued the panel with the bird on the embossed card, then I added, some faux stitching on the left and right borders, the button and at last the sentiment.

Hope this will inspire you!
Now, take your sewing machine or your "sewing" stamps and take the challenge :)
We are eager to see your créations!
