Creating Kindness Blog Hop
Welcome to this month’s Creating Kindness Blog Hop. For the month of August we are all featuring projects with texture. I have chosen to create two examples of texture on a card. Whether it is adding elements of another hobby you enjoy or through working in embellishments, adding texture makes an impact to a project.
Scroll down for the list of blogs featured in this hop. Be sure to visit as many of the design team member’s projects as you can for more great ideas!

Directions to Create a Hand Stitched Daisy on paper
Step 1. Stamp the image in light shade of ink onto card stock
Step 2. Pierce both ends of image (pressing deeply) with Paper Piercing Tool while positioned on Piercing Mat
Step 3. Thread ribbon into a long eyed or tapestry embroidery needle. Tie a knot near the tail end of the ribbon
Step 4. Put needle through one of the piercing holes and pull the ribbon snug. Now push the needle down into the hole at the opposite end of the flower petal. Pull the ribbon snug but not tight. Fluff up the ribbon just a smidgen before moving on
Step 5. Bring the needle up through the next petal and then down as in the previous petal. Repeat this until all petals have been sewn, then secure the ribbon on the back of the paper with Fast Fuse Adhesive
Step 6. Place a Faceted Clear Gem in the center of the flower. Now mount this panel on TWO LAYERS of foam dimensionals
Directions to Create a Sentiment Held with Texture Embellishments
Step 1. Adhere length of ribbon to card front panel.
Step 2. Punch a hole at each end of the paper sentiment
Step 3. Thread Boxwood Wreath or other greenery into each hole from the back of the paper and secure over the ribbon
Step 4. Place foam dimensionals under sentiment on either side of greenery, for stability
