Heart Card

This is my experiment Card. 

I"ve seen many different versions of this card and wanted to give it a shot. It was my first time using my art sewing kit.. I'll def need some more practice! haha :) Didn't exactly turn out like what I had in my head but regardless, it looks kinda cool for my first time :)

I used my Martha Stewart heart punch and punched out 6 shades of reds/pinks. 


Then I folded each heat in half

I then glued down only the crease in the middle of each heart.

This is the sewing kit I used... 


Here we go, I used the straight sewing tool and punctures holes threw the hearts and the card. I had to go threw a couple spots with the needle tool because I had some trouble going threw the hearts.

I used 3 different thread colours.

I then used my pink distress ink and distressed the card. I used a kitchen sponge because my
 Ranger one is full of dark coloured distress ink. It did a not bad job.

Then I used my Glossy Accents and added a dot to the middle of each heart.

I then distressed the edges of the hearts with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain ink to 
make them stand out more.
