20 minutes for Valentine's day




Just a quick show and tell because I am going to pop my little project for this week in the blog shop.



I love the idea of dipping into my fabric/yarn stash, choosing colours that I love and creating a little something.
So, my 20 minutes this week have been spent making Valentine's cards.






I used my embellisher to combine yarns, silk and felt and then added beads, bows and a few hand stitches to finish the little hearts off.




My cards were plain white, embossed with a dotty flower pattern. They have a white page inside and a slightly pearly envelope.
I used a stamp pad to highlight the embossing on the envelope in a colour to match the hearts.


I am nipping over now to add them to the cards shelf at Sisters Crafty Creations.

Such beautiful cards! I have absolutely NO idea how you could create such wonderful craft! By that I mean your wonderful hearts, they look like wool, some of it looks like knitting but no, they are so much more than that! Gorgeous!
