Red Hearts with Tiny Prints Paper

Tiny prints with a "love letters" theme.  Perfect for a bold heart focal point and a "love you, miss you" sentiment.

The card didn't look right until I added the embroidery floss accent.  Interesting how one subtle detail can make such a difference. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) pure poppy (red), spring rain (light blue), and enchanted evening (dark blue), and two prints from Pink Paislee pen pals 6x6" pad.
  • Dies are PTI framed out #11, My Favorite Things stax heart (smallest heart in set), and PTI sketched shapes (wide long banner).
  • Embroidery floss is Finca 8400.
  • Sentiment is computer-printed in dark gray ink using Copperplate font.  The hearts are "alt-9" in Zapf Dingbats font, printed in red ink.
