Hi friends, the title of this post depicts that I couldn't resist creating this card... I got this idea in the morning and right then at around 8:30am I started to work on this card. I was thinking about how can stitches be incorporated into a sentiment, then it hit me that we sew relationships together, we mend relations, which led to patching up.... I was inspired by the CAS-ual Friday's CFC117 - In Stitches challenge and by the colors at Color Q #211. Here's my card...
To make this, I decided to make a trendy collage look. On my card base, I lightly swiped the my Memento Dew drop Ink to match the pumpkin pie shade. I then did some random stamping using My mind's eye the sweetest things and Studio G - iClear grid stamp. I cut out hearts from DCWV Basics Stack of two sizes using Nestabilities Heart dies. Inked the edges and stuck the little heart over the bigger one. Then I hand drew the faux stitches to indicate the patch and the thread extending beyond. Hence, the sentiment ;)
Finally, I hand drew some dots with Sharpie Markers and added glossy accents over them.
