Tip Tuesday: embroider over a pattern

The Cocoa Daisy Day In The Life kit came with some Crate Paper Open Road cards this month... 

I used the embroidery floss from the main kit, Viewfinder, to embroider on the cards. I used the pattern in the cards as a guideline, poked some holes in where I wanted the stitches to go, and then stitched them up!

For this card I stitched over the dotted path, and added a gold heart over top of of the printed heart to add a little bit of shine!
Read some great hand-stitching tips by Jody on the Cocoa Daisy blog!
