Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #314 and MFT Color Challenge #60!

photo I arrived home late from a school meeting last night, but still wanted to make something. Our household has been under the weather, and I was behind on creating anything! Ahhh! 🙂

I was itching to inlay something, and of course, the strips of card stock is always a fave of mine to do!


I wasn’t sure how it would look with the strips on an angle, but I like it! It’s getting mailed today!hawkins_jill_hugs_wm

I rotated the sketch, so the HUGS is the big rectangle, and the nod to the then vertical piece, is my stitching. I couldn’t decide what to do for that element, but I think the stitching turned out fun, albeit a little off from where I intended. Ha! I held my breath as I started stitching, and as I did that little piece at the bottom. I wanted them aligned, and I wasn’t sure where my needle left off! Oh silliness 🙂

Anywho, there you have it! Thanks for stopping by!

    I love your interpretation of the sketch. I just recently purchased a Blueprints set and I can see where this would work well with this sketch too. I have just had not time to try much since Christmas.

    • Hi Liane–(Hopefully this reply comes through 🙂 ) I cut a bunch of card stock strips and paste them well on some plain paper. Then I die cut my item through those strips. After that, I just inlay it all in the die cut. The key to to get those strips glued down good and solid so they lift out like one piece. 🙂 I’ll try and remember to take some in progress photos next time I do it :). Thanks for your comment ❤
