Timeless Cameos

Ok I am still catching up on blog posts, been neglecting my blog for the last few weeks, and have changed things around a bit as you may have noticed... nothing major, just the layout and labels etc..

Anyway, onto one of the cards I want to share and should have done a while back.. Cameos are very popular at the moment and had been thinking about this Marianne D creatables cutting die and what to do with it... until the lacey oval Spellbinders dies arrived and then I knew exactly!! This is a card from a workshop recently, and is hand stitched (yes I have a machine but not everyone does so I wanted to show fellow crafters that you can do stitching with the aid of paper pricking)... so here's the result after using a pokey tool to prick the holes.
The papers are from K & Co Ancestry range which are also timeless like cameos are, and the gold dew drops (home made and coloured with gold alcohol ink) just add the feel of something 'antique' to complete the card.
Below is an image of the inside, the same ovals repeated in the same colour scheme, but with cream as the smallest layer, so its easy to add a personalised image or stamp another sentiment:

...and a closeup of the stitching, papers, etc

thanks for looking, and please leave a comment to let me know what you think of this one - there's a bit more distressing than some of the 'cleaner' cards I normally create LOL.. but it was great fun!
