You need to put the CS you plan on piercing the pattern onto on a soft surface. I used a mouse pad, you can buy the SewEasy self healing foam mat, which is on its way, or a foamy surface of anytime. It just needs to be soft because the piercing head is made of plastic and you don't want to damage the patterned piercing teeth. Here you can see what the CS looks like after running the Vine head over it. Really doesn't look like much yet.
On the reverse side of the CS I used a glue dot to adhere the twine to. Then following the pattern and instructions on the back of the card that the head was on I start to stitch. Now this one was pretty easy for me as I do Cross Stitch and Embroidery. The Vine stitch is an Embroidery stitch.
On the next picture you can see what it looks like after a couple of stitches.
This one shows some pearls I used at the end of some of the leaves, you could also use brads maybe with flowers or stickles.
I like how the card turned out, the CS is all DCWV, cut and embossed using Spellbinders Lacey circles, miscellaneous ribbon and I cant recall were I got the stamp. What a great Spring Thank You card.
Happy Crafting, my next post will show another new technique I have just learned. Here's a hit, I need to buy a lot more fine glitter!
