Today I colored with embroidery thread!
What do you think of this?!

My card is for day 3 of 
coloring challenge.

I found this stamp in the drugstore today. It is nearly
card size. It was real cheap. So I got it and then, you know
with cheap stamps, they do not stamp right (I tried many times)
So what to do: I cut it! I love the reindeer and the senttiment
is so cute!

So I stamped the reindeer and cut it with a die in a circle.
With a piercing tool I made holes for embroidery.

So with light brown embroidery thread I made
cross stitches to color the reindeer.
And after the embroidery was finished  a red nose
is glued on and I finished the card with the
sentiment and some design paper.

And how about this version that is not embroidered
and in monochrome tones. Just a little red
gemstone nose.

Thank you so much for looking
and have a creative day!

What fun you had with this stamp Hetty - and you have made two totally different cards and both are fabulous. Must say I do love the red nose on the stitched one!!

First I thought it embroidered and how clever, then saw you had stamped it and thought so realistic and then saw you had sewn it LOL. LOVE it.

Beautiful embroidery, Hetty! You are so talented at so many crafts! Always impressive! I like how you did some stamp surgery to get it to work for you!

I used to cross stitch all the time! This looks like a set of ornaments I stitched once upon a time. That stamp was a steal!
