Vintage Cross Stitched Globe - EH Stitched Together

Hi Folks! I've got another card with one of my favorites, the cross stitched globe from Ellen Hutson's United We Florish Stitched Together! Would you believe that I set up all four of the different stamps (for each of the different colors) on my Misti back in May when this was released and I still haven't taken them off?! That's right, I haven't used my Misti in three months! I loved the globe so much I kept thinking I need to make just a few more cards. And experiment with a few more color combinations.

This time I wanted to see how it would look on kraft paper, to get an old-world look (pun intended!) I'm a big fan of white, but I really kind of like how it all looks on the kraft. Especially the brown water portions.

Like a real metallic stand would be, I embossed this stand in gold. Love the warm gold with the browns and rose/pinks.

To echo the roses on the globe I chose the Bed of Roses die to make a mat under the kraft panel. The edges are trimmed to give it a loose feeling. I picked the deep rose color from the rose to use for the sentiment so it would all coordinate. Finally, I used a white gel pen to draw a box around the panel.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
