Papertrey Pals Challenge #2

Our second Papertrey Pals challenge has been issued.  Liz D issued a ValenPallenge - we were to create any project that incorporated Valentine's & Sewing.  I love the look of sewing on cards but don't have a machine.  Instead,  I pierced the paper to make faux stitching.  This card was made for my DH.


First,  I embossed the background in a flourish pattern.  The heart is a glitter cardstock that is off set with a hand made black paper.  I peirced the flourish in red to expose the more mustard cardstock underneath. On the inside, to hide the stitching, I tore the black paper to create a jagged edge and then covered it with a torn strip of red.

I love the simplicity in this card. You offered just enough glitter to not "overdo" it... quite beautiful! :)
