With all my heart - MME February Challenge

I recently received a new My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad from my sweet friend Tessa, and thought I would put it to good use and play along with MME's February challenge, All You Need is Love.

If you've followed me for a while, you know that I love the quilted look.

For this card I chose two of the patterns from the Cupid's Arrow pad and using a punch, made four 1 1/2" squares of each.  

Using my scoreboard, I aligned the squares on an angle, like a diamond, and scored a line 1/4" to the right of center, and folded along the score line.

Then it was just a matter of arranging them together.  I butted up two opposing patterns together so that the folded back pieces created a square.  These were then assembled to create the focal point of the card.  Each of the pieces was 'tacked down' with a bit of adhesive and then I added the stitching.  

Two small squares of vellum and a wood veneer heart colored with a Spectrum Noir marker finished off the quilt piece.  To add some extra dimension, I popped that entire panel up with foam adhesive.

The sentiment is from Clear and Simple Stamps.

Sometimes it's just fun to play with punches and see what you come up with.

I'm also going to link this up over at Simon Says Stamp since their soon to expire challenge is to use hearts.

Thanks for coming by.  We're supposed to get some snow tonight, but we'll see....
