I Stand With Youby Becca Neeley
I hear you. I see you. I stand with you. Black Lives Matter.
I began this card by going through my embroidery floss and picking lots of different skin tone colors.
I die cut a stitching holes into a piece of A2 cardstock, and cut a circle out of the middle. You don't have to remove the middle, I just did it to save time as I knew I would cover it up in the end. I cross stitched the entire panel with horizontal stripes using embroidery floss.
To adhere the stitched background to my card I used strong double sided tape to ensure it was secure.
Onto a brown die cut circle I white heat embossed two sentiments from Black Lives Matter. I added extra layers of card stock behind for dimension so it would adhere flush to the stitching.
I kept the embellishments to a few simple clear gems, so that it wouldn't distract from the message.
