Another Natural Beauty creation. A very autumnal card, reminds me of home - ahhhh. I have used the faux stitching technique on this card which is just as well, when I tried using my machine to stitch card it wasn't overly successful - in fact it ended up costing me quite a lot in cardstock!!!

Faux Stitching basically means pricking holes at a regular distance apart from each other and then using a stamp and write marker to join the holes. A bit like a very simple dot-to-dot!

I find by making the the lines between the dots very slightly curved and different from the ones immediately near it, you get a more realistic effect, as we all know it is nigh on impossible to get the tension right on fabric, let alone card!
