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. IMG_0060editedI thought the colors were a bit too vibrant so I toned them down but squashing the word die cut onto my Craft ink pad and blending the white ink with my finger. Lastly traced the sentiment with a white gel pen.  IMG_0053edited

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

  1. Melissa, your card is just amazing. It’s simply ingenious how you put it together. I would have never thought to do something like this, but now I want to go give it a try. Thank you for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday!
