Acorns 2



This time I just did the outlines of the leaves and acorns.  Again I used two strands of DMC and blended the colours on all but the stems.  The stems were done in stem stitch, the other outlines were done in split stitch. 

Once the embroidery was complete, the embroidered band was machine stitched to the leaf fabric and then made into the card.  According to DS2, this one isn't finished because it wasn't filled in! 

That's four cards done.  As I have maybe six more to do, I need to get my thinking cap on for some more.
