PTI Make It Monday #40 Reverse Applique Project

The Challenge:
To learn a reverse applique technique with PTI die cuts using a sewing machine, a needle and thread or faux stitching.  You can see the video on Heather Nichols or Nichole Heady's Blog.
My Project:
I chose the Take Three Die and punched it using Kraft cardstock.  The candy print behind the cut-outs is fabric I purchased from Joann's.  The machine stitching was done with my new Pfaff sewing machine.  The gingerbread boy stamped image is from the Holiday Button Bits stamp set as is the sentiment. The Pure Poppy buttons and Rustic Cream Button Twine  are both from PTI. After rounding the bottom corners and "dusting" the edges with White Snow ink it was mounted on Pure Poppy cardstock.  I am hoping next year PTI introduces a die that can be used on this darling little gingerbread man.  

Thanks for stopping by.. comments are appreciated!

Love the dimension, the texture, the subject and the "homespun" feel. What a great combination. You've just moved us into the "excited for the holidays" feel!
