In Stitches with JustRite

Hi everyone! Have you enjoyed seeing what the Dream Team has been showing for Stamper's Dream JustRite week? I know I've loved seeing all their creative projects. They never cease to amaze me.

Here's the schedule from Monday til today:
Monday (Today) - Amy, Dawn, Cam, Laurie
Tuesday - Cindy, Denise, Michelle, Me
Wednesday (Today)- Cam, Silke, Michelle, Me

Well, today, I have a simpler card to show you. Yesterdays was pretty involved, so I decided to take it down a few notches.

I couldn't wait to use an image from the new JustRite set Stitched with Love. Each image is super charming!! I paper toled the heart after stamping it with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Simply Smooth Ivory cs and colored it with copics to match the dp. The fun dp is Farm Fresh (October Afternoon), the buttons, PTI, and th border punch, Martha Stewart. I used Ivory Burlap String in the buttons, and my sewing machine to stitch the panels together. Finally, I framed the heart by die cutting the larger circle with a Circle Nestabilities. Leaving the circle in the die, I added a smaller circle but just embossed the two with my cuttlebug. That way I got an embossed frame in the center.

That sums up my card for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a fabulous rest of the week!!

Tosh - this is beautiful!!! I LOVE those stitched panels together and you did burlap string in the buttons - good grief that is awesome! I LOVE that tip of how to emboss the frame in the center! Got put that in my creating hat and so I can add a little "Tosh Magic" to my cards! Yes, that is my new term - Tosh Magic! :))) Sending you big hugs!
Sankari :)
