Happy Monday! As I was going through my supplies trying to decide what to create for today’s post (and still in a mood to create a love-themed project), I found this totally adorable paper from Doodlebug Design:
It is the Sugar, Sugar double-sided cardstock from their Sweetheart collection. As soon as I saw it, I instantly fell in love. Those sweet clouds with the dangling hearts—what’s not to love?! I knew it would make an awesome card.
To start, I gathered my supplies together and cut out some clouds and hearts of assorted shapes and sizes with my die cut machine.
I arranged the cuts on my base panel until I found the perfect placement.
I marked a point at the center of each heart with a pencil.
Then, I marked a line at the center height of my cloud.
Using the pencil marks as my guide, I marked holes about every 1/4″ from each heart’s pencil mark to the mark at the center point of the cloud with a paper piercer.
I went back and pierced the holes all the way through to make more room for my needle and thread.
I erased all of my pencil marks. (You don’t want to see those on your finished card!)
Then, I started stitching. (I prefer to stitch through every other hole, and then work my way back.)
Here is the finished stitching:
I added hearts to the end of each stitched line to complete my dangling hearts.
All that was left was to add the clouds (with a few cross stitches), my sentiment, and a few border strips along the top and bottom of the card.
A sweet Valentine card inspired by a super cute design!
Hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday post. Thanks so much for stopping by!
