A hundred hearts would be to few . . .

Hello my crafty friends!


Click HERE for the Monday challenge and prize!

It is Design Team day over at Celebrate the Occasion!  The challenge is to make a Mother's Day card.  So, here is my take on the challenge:


This window card is filled with hearts for my Mom!  I first used my Gypsy and the George cartridge to weld and cut out a white card base with a window.  Next, I cut (from blue patterned cardstock - Crate Paper) a card front with a window and an inside piece.   I also cut out a Pink 'frame' for my window. 


 The sentiment for the outside and the matching sentiment for the inside of the card come from my new Inside & Out stamp Set #1. I curved them on my acrylic block.  :)


I used Black Licorice Bakers Twine.


The patterned paper for the hearts come from some DCWV adhesive backed stacks I have.  The adhesive back makes this a lot easier!


To string the hearts:

1.  Tape pieces of white sewing thread on white card base.  
2.  Stick hearts on top of thread and then put a second heart on the back so that the thread is sandwiched between the hearts.  
3.  Adhere the blue layer on top to cover all of the thread ends and tape. 
4.  Adhere pink frame on top and add faux stitching with white gel pen.


Have a Happy day!

  32. Hi Kimberley,
    Love the ribbon and the beautiful work you and others have done with it. I live in Australia and was wanting to buy some as I haven't seen anything as gorgeous here. Can you me know if that is possible?
