forever & always

Back again to share my card inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World: Sweets for the Sweet. Here's the trigger:

And here's what I created:

always and forever

I used the colours as my main source of inspiration, and it's very faint, but I made a stamped background with a paisley/damask-style stamp using Versamark ink to imitate the pattern on the wrapping of the box.

I've fallen head-over-heels with the sewing on cards craze that everyone seems to be doing right now, but I can't sew using the machine to save my life! The secret to my success is that the edge of the top layer as well as the middle of the hearts were hand-sewn using a piercing tool, ruler and then needle and thread. Was time-consuming but therapeutic at the same time :)

The sentiment is a from the new Wedding mini clear stamp set by Kaisercraft. I love it!

Size of card: 5 1/2" x 6 7/8" (to fit in 11b envelope)

Card/paper - Stampin' Up Very Vanilla cardstock, Bazzill cardstock
Stamp - Wedding mini stamp set by Kaisercraft, Prima floral stamp
Ink - Versamark, Raspberry Versacolor cube
Extra - white sewing thread
Tools - Carl rotary trimmer, Helmar glue runner, foam dots, needle, piercing tool, Sullivan's heart punch


  1. I think your sewing looks fabulous, and it doesn't appear that you need the machine!

  2. Such a sweet card and I love how you have stitched the hearts to the card.

  3. Beautiful! I love the design. Very cool.

  4. Hey Jess! What a pretty approach to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! Thanks so much for playing along! :)
