Friends With Flair ~ Hearts on a Line

I'm so happy that its Friday! Among other happy things, it means that its time to link up your Unity projects to Friends With Flair! If you don't have any projects to link up, come hop around and enjoy the inspiration that everyone has for you.

This week I've got a card that I honestly don't know if I'm going to use as a Valentine or a birthday card...it could easily be either! I guess that if I don't make up my mind soon that I'll just have to make another one, and have both!

The layout was taken from this pin, I do so enjoy using my sewing machine on my cards!




The hearts are stitched only through the middle, so that they can be bent up slightly for dimension.




I'm using lighter weight cardstock for the card base, because it was the right color, so I needed to stabilize the back piece by lining...but who says linings have to be plain?




Supplies:

  • cardstock: recollections
  • printed cardstock: basic grey (sweet threads)
  • stamps: unity kom (feb 2011)
  • punch: the paper studio
  • ink: memento
  • other: my sewing machine
Thanks so much for stopping by, Enjoy!

  11. Oh so jealous... I've tried and tried to sew my cards in the past with no luck or maybe just no skill in that department. I love your card, the hearts are beautiful and the lining is as beautiful as the cover!
