Scissors Sunday: Faux Stitching

Happy Scissors Sunday everyone!  Jackie here with a little tidbit about how to get that stitched look to your hybrid projects without ever having to lift a needle or thread.  I use it on occasion and I like the way it looks.

I created this card using Jennifer's "My Birthday Boy" kit which is available at 9th and Bloom.  For the lighter tan colored strip, I used Jennifer's "My Best Friend" kit.  After I printed off the papers and cut them out, I added some white stitching with a white craft marker.  You can use any color marker you'd like, of course!  I did it completely free hand, but you could use a ruler to keep your lines straight if you want.

A closer view (as you can see they aren't perfect, but I feel it gives a little bit more personality to the card!):

As a creative team member for several digital scrapbook designers, I have received their products for free in return for creating and posting projects (digital layouts, hybrids projects, etc). Many of the layouts you see here were done in conjunction with requirements for these creative teams. Please be advised that the products used were indeed received for free.
