Stitched Hearts

I’m here with a fun and bright card inspired by Make It Monday #255: String Art Using Die-Cuts with Amy Sheffer.


First, I made a stencil using the hearts cover plate die. Then I sponged a rainbow through the stencil.


Then I die cut the sponged panel using the Center Style: Feminine Die and set that aside.

Papertrey Ink - Center Style: Feminine DieI attached the outside “frame” part of the sponged heart panel to a white card base.

Next I went back to the enter piece and stitched white cord into the Center Style: Feminine Die cut, securing with a bit of tape on the back. Then I attached the stitched center panel to the card front using foam tape.


I die cut the sentiment and then used my Zig markers to ink it up, brushed with water to blend the colors and allowed to dry.

Lastly traced the sentiment with a white gel pen.  IMG_0053edited
