Hello Simple Stories friends! Anya here today and I am happy to share with you a set of cards I created with the gorgeous Apron Strings collection! I can't say enough how much I really enjoyed playing with this line and can't wait to get creating with it again soon!
When I am planning on making a few cards at a time, journaling cards element pieces and tags are always my first things I go to. There's a simple formula that makes a cute cars every time: 3x4 element card + a few layers of a similar shape underneath + matching background + at least one die cut or chipboard piece + a finishing touche in form of brads and enamel dots.
Stitching always adds a great handmade feel to any project and it has been one of my favorite techniques for years! If you like your stitched pieces to lay nice and flat on a card or layout, make sure to use a Bone Folder tool to smooth out the stitches from the back.
I hope you give my “formula” a try next time you sit down to create some cards! Be sure to tag Simple Stories in your projects when you share them on Instagram. Happy creating and come back soon for more inspiration!
