I got out some Echo Park Paper scraps (mostly Victoria Gardens) and a heart punch and made nine hearts. I tacked the hearts lightly in columns on a white cardstock base. I intended to sew a single line down the middle but I got slightly off course on my first row, so I decided to make each row a double.
To make the columns of hearts into a card, I followed a layout design for my inspiration. My friend Karen Tarpley made this adorable layout with sewn butterflies.
I thought her layout would be easiliy adaptable into a card. Following her design, I added a bit of patterned paper above the hearts, then added a bit of pink trim, a doily and a journaling card.
Thanks for the inspiration, Karen. You can find more of her work on her blog.
