Punch 310

Faux Cross Stitching

Hi everyone! Wendy here and today I'm sharing how I created a faux cross stitch look on my layout with Kreaxion Punch #310.

Learning to love

supplies: Kreaxions Punch #310, GCD studios pattern paper, Scenic Route stickers


instructions:

  1. punch a LOT of x's using Kreaxions #310. (TIP: an easy way to get lots of negative punch pieces without wasting lots of paper using the entire punch, is to cut 1/2 inch strips of cardstock. Feed the strip of paper into the part of the punch you wish to get.) 
  2. Practice laying out your design before adhering the punches down to the layout. I found laying down a ruler to use as a guide made it easier to keep my line of "stitches" straight and neat.

    What a GREAT idea Wendy!!! I absolutely HATE sewing but this looks so REAL! I’m definitely gonna have to play around with this idea! So MANY possibilities with all of the Kreaxions 4-in-1 punches!!! GREAT LO! 🙂

    That looks like a whole lot of work but it sure was worth it for that adorable accent on your layout.
