First sewn "layered" card... finally!

I LOVE all of these projects I've seen around with the multi-layered punched papers sewn down so the layers stack 3-dimensionally and I've wanted to try one.  For a while.  A long while.  Really.  Problem is that I just don't like sewing.  At all.  Really.  However, I had to hem some pants for DH earlier this week and the machine is still out and ready to run so today was the day.  As easy as it was, I really should have done this much sooner.
Ingredients: Hey look!  More of that SU patterned paper!  :)
Paper: (Patterned paper, Whisper White, Real Red) Stampin' Up
Stamp: (Picture This) Stampin' Up
Ink: (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Punches: (Full Heart, Heart to Heart) Stampin' Up, (Corner rounder) EK Success

CAS-ual Fridays #39: Love Ya To Pieces (Paper-piecing.  OK.  My little heart is SMALL but I think it really kinda finishes off the card.  It really wasn't the same without it.)

Tip Top Tuesday #69: Valentine's
Frosted Designs: LOVE (While it doesn't SAY "love," that's what the heart "says."
Apron Strings Bingo Card: New to you technique

  7. What a great card! I too, am inspired by all the sewn 3-d elements I keep seeing around, but have not hauled out the sewing machine yet. I'm so glad that you got to make yours though, and thanks for sharing them here.
    Cheers, Karen
