  1. Patricia Reidinger

    What a beautiful card. It’s just stunning. I can’t wait for the Pansy Petals Suite Collection to arrive!
    A question though, the stitches in the white card stock look like they match the Fresh Fressia paper. Is that just the shading from the camera or what? I’m new to stamping so I’m trying to figure everything out.
    Thanks so much.

    • Hi Patricia,
      The stitching did take on some color from the camera, it is not that color on the card itself.
      You are very observant! Please let me know if I can assist you further. Have a fabulous day! Mary
