July 2020 Week 4 Technique of Sewing for no 28 at 52 CCT Blog

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart would be happier if I had one of my sewing machines set up but in a tiny house I just haven't found a spot, so I'm content to use some faux sewing techniques for Challenge no 28 at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. 

*lacing with the silver ribbon
*faux stitches with the staples
*dotted impressions in a bordering line highlighted by silver paint pen and green soft paint/wax type of crayon in pine needle patterning to look like sewing machine needle hole punching or a tracing wheel

Plan a Date for Friday, the 25th Christmas card=

Link to 52 CCT's #28-20 posting=
