Sewing on Hearts!

Whenever I sit in my stamp room to create, my handy dandy sewing machine sits to my right on a separate table. Today as I sat down, I thought I would use my sewing machine. I've had this idea in my head for a few weeks now and finally, I completed my idea! Here is a cute and easy little Valentine's card:

I started out with the "Heart Pressed Letterpress Plate" on "Poppy Parade Cardstock". Did you know by inking your letterpress plates with "VersaMark" ink, the images are actually "watermarked" on the cardstock?

Stamp the sentiment image from the "XOXO" stamp set with "Poppy Parade Ink" and I used the "Decorative Label Punch" for the shape. Adhere to card.

Next I used my "Full Heart Punch" with "Baja Breeze, Whisper White & So Saffron Cardstocks" for my hearts. I then positioned them and using my sewing machine, stitched a straight line in the center of each heart. Once stitched, I gently pulled the hearts toward the center to give them a 3D look.

To finish off my card I added 3 solo hearts cut from the "Small Heart Punch" and "Glimmer Paper".
