Heart 2 Heart has us in Stitches

I was a seamstress long before I ever heard of Close to my Heart. So when I got my sewing machine out my daughter said "Oh, Mom, You're sewing!" Ya, but I'm sewing on cards! What a concept! And....soon I'm going to start adding fabric to my creations. On this card I added some antique lace.

This card has machine stitching on each part of the card and french knots with cranberry embroidery thread at the corners of the squares.

Be sure to visit Heart 2 Heart for all your sewing tips and inspiration.

All supplies are CTMH:
Papers: Mistletoe
Cardstock: Colonial White. Desert Sand
Ink: Garden Green, Cranberry, Desert Sand
