My Auntie Ann has a group of girlfriends that she has grown up with and they do a lot together. One thing they do is celebrate each others birthday's. Well its Marcia's!! Since I made that card for Gabriella's birthday my Aunt has asked me to make one for her girlfriend. They each got a tiara (cause they are Queens!!) at their Christmas get together in 2008 and each got their picture taken. So this is what I have to wok with, a tiara with wonder holes in it with a colorful Christmas tree in the background!! Oh well, I was able to clean up the photo around Marica's face but I was not going to try to clear out the background in each open space of her tiara. The end result looks very colorful!!
|Marcia cleaned up!!|
There are 35 different colors in Marcia's photo stitch out. I got them all ready to go ahead of time.
My thread holder on my sewing machine holds 8 colors at a time so I broke them into groups of 8 and took a photo after each group.
After the first 8 colors.
You can see more definition and those colors on top keep growing!!
So much fun to see it come to life.
After 8 hours the embroidery is done. Then I trim the card and cut the corners on a 45° angle. I fold it with the help of an iron and then stitch around the edges.
Then you have a card!!
Hope you have a great birthday, Marcia.
