Love me some Embellish Magazine! The challenge this time around is to use pink, aqua and kraft, and to incorporate stitching. About half-way through this card I decided that I really wished I had stitched the hearts on a white panel...but after all of that piercing and stitching I was not about to start over. There's always tomorrow, right?! ;o)
This really is a simple card, just time consuming thanks to the hand stitching. After I pre-pierced the hearts and outer edge, I sat down with two of my guilty pleasures (a glass of wine and America's Next Top Model) and stitched away. I used two shades of light pink for the hearts and embellished them with some punched hearts, buttons and ribbon. The only stamps on this card, GASP!, are the tree tops from Funky Foliage pulling double duty as a flower. Here's a detail shot of the hearts.
I know I haven't been sharing too many projects lately...but there is a good reason. I have been crafting, oh yes I've been crafting. But you will have to wait until Monday to see them as I will be starting our APRIL RELEASE!!! And let me tell you, I have had a VERY hard time putting these babies down!
