MFT & Friends

The MFT Cross-Stitch Tag die was the first cross-stitch dies that I bought.  If you don’t already know, I spent months and months, hundreds upon hundreds of hours cross-stitching my family’s Christmas stockings.  I realize the hard work that goes into it and was hesitant about stitching on paper for cards.  So I started small and got that die hoping it would ease me back into the time commitment required to make a card.  I have since purchased a full cover die for stitching and was sooo excited when MFT released their Scallop Cross-Stitch Tag dienamic!  I knew right away that I wanted to use it for my project today in addition to their new Mini Rolled Roses dienamics!

I stitched the entire panel using a pattern I found online in a soft blue.  I used 6-stranded embroidery floss – all 6 strands to stitch this panel.  Then I cut out the flowers using various felt that I had on hand using the new Mini Rolled Roses dienamics and MFT’s Fab Foliage dienamics.  I layered everything on the cross stitched tag and adhered it all down using my detailed hot glue gun.

To complete the tag, I added a sentiment from MFT’s Amazing stamp set after embossing it in white on black card stock.  I tied two pieces of ribbon after threading it through the tag and tied a knot to keep the ribbon in place.  I also like that it is somewhat stationary.
