For this particular layout, I took the cutting blade out of my Silhouette Cameo and replaced it with a black Silhouette sketch pen and traced the Retro 50's Background design onto white card stock.
Usually I cut out the designs, but I wanted to hand stitch on my layout and boy oh boy did I hand stitch. It was a labor of love for sure. I used 5 different colors of DMC embroidery floss. After the stitching was completed, I added some coordinating sequins here and there on the layout.
I really love all the texture that the hand stitching adds to the layout.
I hope you are inspired to try cut files in a different way such as using sketch pens. Be sure and check out all the awesome designs at Just Nick Digital Cut Files.
