The patterned paper came with a magazine, but it was a great size polka dot to use as a background. I even drug out the sewing machine! Sewing on cards adds so much texture...besides, its just fun!
The cut file came from Birds Cards, here. I added an offset to the outside, to add contrast.
I used the hearts from the cutout as a border along the inside layer, I didn't want to cut into a whole new page of brown cardstock, and the piece I had left was not wide enough to cover the inside. Design opportunity! I also used a smaller heart to cover the spot I stopped and started the stitching.
I'll add a stamped sentiment to the inside a bit later...I'm having too much fun cutting right now to clear my desk!
