So many ways to present

I was asked if I could make a 16th birthday card for a girl who was into vampires and zombies and not a girly girl.  After discussion we decided on a Sweet 16 card on black card.  Using the pattern from Stitching Cards. As with all card orders I want them to be perfect for the person ordering so played around with the best way to present the card.sweet16-bead2

This is the basic stitched design on black card

Below are ones with sequins and beads added

Next is the making it into a card, I ended up with 13 different designs plus the above options, most of the differences are quite subtle, but do change the overall appearance.

I don’t know which one I would have gone for myself, it was amazing how many different ideas I ended up with and it was a good excuse to play!
