One Stitch at a Time is Summer Sun. I hope my card covers this topic by using hot colours such as red and yellow. It's a birthday card for my great nephew and William's birthday, hopefully, will have some Summer Sun.
The image I've used is called Birthday Boy 1 by BeeBeeKakes over at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. You can get a Birthday Girl too so hop over there and buy these cute little images.
I used a small card blank by Joanna Sheen. The blue striped paper is from a Papermania pad by Docraft. I matted it on to red Papermill card. I coloured the image with Promarkers, cut it with a Spellbinders grand nestie and used Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink on the inside edge. After trying it against the striped paper I decided to mat the image on to red card too to make it stand out more. I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the number 1 in Papermill yellow card which I added to a 'die cut and embossing stencil' shape. I have no idea who makes these but I ordered them from Joanna Sheen website. They are only £4.99 per set of four or five sizes, depending on which set you buy.
