I had so much fun participating in the last Control Freak Blog Hop (my last post). I hope you took a few minutes and scrolled through all of the blogs to see what the other Control Freaks made for the blog hop. The talent is just amazing!
Since I had all of my Occasions Mini Catalog supplies out to make my projects for the blog hop, I decided to use the same products to make this card.
I pulled out my Janome Sew Mini sewing machine and sewed around the edges of the Real Red DSP and around all four of the Chocolate Chip DSP squares. I used pink thread so it's a little light in the photo. I also used seven Dew Drops--one on each of the squares and three below the sentiment "for you." They're very difficult to see in the photo. After I adhered them down I realized I should have used a darker color Dew Drop so they'd show up better. If I had pulled them off, they would have ripped the DSP and I didn't want that to happen. Sometimes it's just best to just leave things alone.
I cut the heart out using my heart-shaped Nestabilities. Before removing the cardstock from the Nestability, I sponged some Real Red ink in the center of the heart. This left a Pretty in Pink border around the edge of the heart. If that doesn't make sense, you can see my tutorial here on how to do that. I stamped one of the flowers from the Vintage Vogue Stamp set in Real Red ink, cut it out, and adhered it with a dimensional. I finished the flower off with a Playground Designer Button and a piece of Linen Thread.
I finished off the inside of my card with more sewing, the Pinking Hearts Border Punch, and a piece of Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon. Thanks for stopping by! ~Dannie
