Love You Sew Much

Here's my first card using materials from Simon's January 2014 Card Kit.  I was inspired by Lucy to make a quilt card.


I used my 1 1/4" punch to punch out squares from 3 of the included designer papers, then pieced them back together on a 3 3/4" scrap backing to make a 9-patch quilt.  Then I used one of my Spellbinders scalloped heart dies to cut out the heart.  That was glued to my marshmallow card base, and I stamped the sentiment from the Only Have Eyes for You stamp set in the kit in charcoal ink.  Next I ran the whole card front through a cuttlebug embbosing folder called Cross My Heart.  And lastly I added a heart button and a double bow.  

Here's all the lovely elements in this month's kit - love everything about it!

Lovely card Lin - this would be a great card to use up all those scraps of paper ;) And the heart embossing is a perfect echo for the scalloped heart focal! Rx
