Touch & Feel Valentine

My craft table has been buried under a mountain of wedding invites, but I swept them all aside today to make this very tactile Valentine card...


I started by sewing a piece of More Amore Designer Fabric to my card base (I added a layer of very vanilla cardstock under the fabric because my base was so dark that it muted the fabric).

 
 I frayed the edges of the fabric after sewing, then added a torn and sponged layer of very vanilla cardstock, and a scrunched and distressed layer of pool party cardstock.

Add a flower from the Flower Trim, some sale-a-bration Pool Party ribbon and a laser-cut heart from the More Amore DSP pack and your sweetie be able to keep their hands (or eyes) off this card!


Here's what the stitching looks like from the inside - straight lines are boring!


The stamps used on the front of the card are From My Heart and Itty Bitties stamp sets, and the inspiration for this card came from  the sketch at Mojo Monday and the colors from Pals Paper Arts challenge.

Happy Stamping!

You are really tempting me now with fabric on the cards and showing how the stitching looks inside the card.
