Valentine's day ideas - No.4

Hello again,

Well, I can't find the photo's for the project I wanted to show you, so I will share this one with you instead.  As you can see, it's another card, but this time a full sized A6 card.

I used "Poppy Parade" cardstock and the "First Edition" DSP, which I think work wonderfully together.  I used the heart punches to create a 'kite' effect, with the linen thread as the kite string.

I heat embossed the image from the "Always Elegant" stamp set onto the cardstock before using the large heart punch so that I could get a symmetrical image on the heart.

I used the mat pack and the paper piecing tool to put holes all around the card and used a black marker to make the faux stitching.

I really like this card, hope you do too.
