Papertrey Ink is the sponsor for this month's sketches at Card Positioning Systems. I'm participating this week by creating a card with CPS sketch 153.
I used Stampin Up's sage shadow cs for the card base and heart focal point. I cut the heart using a Fiskars shape template. I wanted some scallops and because I don't have a scalloped heart die cut, I punched a strip of white cs using the EK Success double scallop edge punch. I then cut each scallop individually and adhered each one to the underside of the heart. I also used this same punch on the strip of black cs beneath the heart. I pierced along the perimeter of the heart and added faux stitching with a black gel pen. The patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye. The stamped images are from PTI's Quilter's Sampler stamp set. I stamped the thread and needle image using Versamark ink and the sentiment in Brilliance graphite black ink.
