Here's my card
It's for this month's challenge at House of Cards Challenge
Hmm - stitches either real or faux. Well, I've not (yet) tried sewing on my cards, so I decided to work faux stitches onto my card. I searched around - looking for inspiration. I found an idea that I had to try - denim.
Start with a SU Night of Navy stamp pad and using direct to paper technique, move the stamp pad in one direction (say lengthwise) and then move the stamp pad perpendicular to the first direction (now widthwise). I used a light blue cardstock to start. It's quite startling how much it really looks like denim. I "made" a few sheets of denim paper - one of which I cut into a pocket. I found that I needed to add a thin matte to make the pocket stand out. I added some faux stitches to mimic a jeans pocket. I felt that it needed a bit more, so I cut out a flourish (MFT) from silver paper. To make it "Levi-like", I added a small red "thanks" tag to complete the card. I left the top of the pocket open, so that the pocket could be used as a gift card holder.
Here's a close-up
