Still in Stitches!

Happy Friday! This week went so fast! I am so enjoying having my husband home so time is flying.
As promised yesterday....here is the "other" card I was working on with a stitched heart. The premise is the same--Use a Mega heart punch (Marvy) as a template to create piercing holes around and then remove template and hand stitch with thread.)
I originally stitched two hearts because I figured I would mess one up (and they were easy to do while watching TV with my daughter!)

For this card...I added a bunch of punched hearts along the side (punched from paper scraps!)...did some machine stitching along the side and added some ribbon and buttons.
It is rather busy on the left.....but I kept the right side of the card very simple to keep the focus on the sentiment, "The best thing about me is you"---LOVE this! It is one of the new sentiments in the LOVE NOTES set (by Gina K Designs) and it is free this month when you buy three other stamp sets.

Materials used: Stamps-Love Notes (Gina K Designs); su markers-red, black; red thread; paper piercing tool, Marvy Mega heart punch; designer paper-black-The Mod Retro Stack (DCWV), Farm Fresh (October Afternoon); Report Card (October Afternoon); Grandmas Christmas Soup (Jillibean soup); ribbon-SU!; white cardstock-Gina K Designs; sewing machine.

Just another way to use a stitched heart in your design!
Have a great FRIDAY!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so happy for you and your family that your hubby got to come home to you...even if it was because of an injury. Hopefully he'll be good as new in no time (does he get to stay home once he's recovered?).

Both of your stitched heart cards are so cute --and creative (something you're really good at)! I love the heart balloon with that darling little girl, and this one with the punched hearts and beautiful sentiment is so sweet. Beautiful job and love your creativity, Cammie!
