House of Cards August Challenge


Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the House of Cards August Challenge! This month the challenge is to create a card that features twine and/or the color palette!


Here’s my take on the challenge!


I love this new trend of creating string art with twine! But don’t tell anyone it’s not so new–I did A LOT of this as a kid in the 1970’s! I used a piece of white cardstock, and punched all the tiny holes with little awl and a soft mat, like a mousepad. I then used embroidery floss to backstitch the pattern and add the string art spider web.


This is a fun way to use twine, and I love seeing a page full of holes come to life! I think I’m going to practice my stitching a little more and come up with some fun autumn pumpkin designs!

We’d love to see what YOU will create using twine and/or this rich color palette. You can link up your creation and play along with us over at House of Cards right here:

    It’s simply adorable, Michele! I also did this “embroidered cardstock” with my daughter when she was little, but it was not nearly as nice and elegant! Love the outlined branch and a spiderweb! This is really something!
