An old favourite stitch pattern...

I first used this stitch pattern by Carla Prediger back in 2013.  I loved doing this one back then so I thought I would have another go but this time with a different colour thread.  This time the thread is a metallic mix of Silver, Rose Red and Green.  It is also by Gutermann and is CA 2776.  I love the delicate look it gives to the stitches.
I have tried to match the Rose Red  and the Green colours in the thread with the card used for the matt and for the sentiment.   I also managed to find an already printed sheet of backing card in the same rosy red colour used for the printed stars.



I die cut the sentiment using a Creative Expressions die and self adhesive cardstock by DCWV in Christmas and Winter Colours.  So much easier than trying to put glue on the back of the die cuts.
The holly leaves and berries were also cut from the adhesive card.
