Card Fun

 I thought that it would be fun to layer up a small cross stitch piece with some papers to frame it, and secure them with a brad (like a paper fastener) or two.

This was my first one.  Fine, and just needs a greeting to be added at the bottom of the card to complete it, but not really exciting.
 Then I went for a slightly quirkier approach, and twisted the middle paper.  I like this effect!
Lastly I went 'total free style' and used a scatter of cross stitches for the stitching element.  As these corrugated cards were thicker, I didn't add a brad as I thought it would make the whole thing too bulky.

Fun stitching!  Thank you Pintrest for the penguin and hedgehog patterns.
