More Cross stitch creations

Good morning friends, followers and visitors to my blog. I am still trying to get through the orders for the cross stitch creations.  So today I am sharing with you 2 of the orders I completed yesterday.
The first is a personalised Christmas card. I cut an 18cm square card base and die cut an aperture in which I adhered the cross stitch panel. I then die cut the corners, which was a free die in a magazine and attached them for added decoration. To match the iridescent aida (which you can't really see in the photo) I added a touch of clear Wink of Stella.  The customer loves it.

This second creation is a personalised bookmark which was a real challenge to do.  To begin with I could not get the aperture to go right, considering I had to do this by hand as I don't have a suitably sized die. So after wasting reams of card stock,  I finally gave up and decided to hide the mistakes with a border. Seems to have worked ok.  This one was also loved by the customer.  Phew 2 happy bunnies, 3 including me lol.

I have 2 more orders on the go at the moment plus 2 waiting to be started, so busy, busy, busy me today.   
I hope you all have a lovely day and I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today.

Hugs Lainie xx
