Not your traditional Valentine Card...
I hope you're not bored to tears with my stitching cards because I have one more for you. While my husband was back in the hospital for his third surgery, I had prepared some stitching patterns to work on. This is the first of the four I worked on during that time.
I love to use the variegated embroidery thread as the colors are so rich and the changing from color to color is so pretty. For this card I decided to use #3079 Tilda With Christmas Ribbon but of course I changed the theme. You can purchase this image from Diana at Magnolia-licious and she is in stock.
So here is my card. I have a lot of pictures for you so I'll just post them and then give you the recipe at the end of the post...
For the inside of my card I used a different Tilda. I thought as the front sentiment said "love you" that #340 Fairydust Tilda blowing kisses would be so cute!
The notation panel...
