One of my favorite products that Amy has released has got to be the stitching templates! I love making fun, simple, one of a kind cards using nothing more than the template, some thread and white card stock. Sometimes I will also add a small sentiment as well, but seriously folks it doesn't get easier!
I start with my card base and decide which template to use. For this baby shower card (baby boy!) I decided to use blues and greens so I picked out some of my favorites from my thread stash (this is actually the kids friendship bracelet kit, don't tell anyone!).
Once I have pierced the holes using the Amy Tangerine template I just started with one balloon and worked my way around. I love that the balloons have the stripes, it just adds a special little touch! I am a fan of using washi on the back side to secure everything, easy and FUN!
Once I was done with the balloons I added a little bow made out of the same thread I used of bows and just a touch of hot glue. I kept the sentiment super simple so that the balloons are the star of the show! Once I was done with the front I simple added a piece of scrap paper to the back to cover up my hot mess and a hand written note to wrap it up!
What I love most about these templates is that I can make dozens of these cards with these templates and now that I have my basic design down it will be amazingly simple!!
