XOXOXO

I am so in the Valentines mood.  If you have noticed...ha!  My last several cards have been light gray, white with a red heart.  I almost did the same again so I figured I better change it up....by leaving out the gray.  :)  Instead, I used Vellum.  And a technique I have been seeing around.  Sewing down the middle of the words....so fun, right?  The last card I saw was by Laura B...amazing!  Here is mine...

I used the end of the border die and cut 2 (out of vellum) so the X's would be perfect.  The O's were easy to trim up.  Then I stuck them down with a little adhesive and sewed down the middle.  I added the little heart by popping it up on foam.  I attached the card front to the card base with some more foam.  It's all about the foam really.  How would I make a card without the stuff?
