SU047 Faux Stitching

Stamps - Mini Mates, Sanded.

Cardstock - Barely Banana, Pale Plum, White.
Ink - Barely Banana, Pale Plum.

Accessories - White pen, scallop circle punch, small oval punch, 13/8" circle punch, photo corner punch.

I added some Faux Stitching by punching holes in the cardstock, using a paper piercing tool, a paper piercing pad and a paper piercing template, to make straight lines. Then with the white gel pen, I drew lines from hole to hole to create the look of thread.  So simple to do.
