Hi card making friends and welcome back. Today’s card share is Spellbinders Stitched Heart. This is the Small Die of the Month for December and it has fabulous layering dies and a beautiful heart that only takes a few minutes to stitch up.
If you have never stitched on a card before, this would be the perfect beginner kit to try it out. If you don’t like to stitch on cards, no problem, this looks lovely without the stitching too. Either way, it’s very easy to create a beautiful set of cards with this die set. The set also includes sentiment dies and the flower and leaf dies.

For today’s card I decided to do an Ombre Ink Blending Technique for the trellis die. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo and Worm Lipstick. It adds depth and interest to the card.
How to create the Spellbinders Stitched Heart Card:
Start by ink blending the Ombre onto a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Hammermill cardstock. Once dry, cut it out with the trellis die including the stitched heart center insert.
Pro -TIP – save the extra pieces to die cut the flowers and sentiment.
Next, die cut the next layer die, also from Hammermill Cardstock.
then, cut another piece at 4″ x 5-1/4. Place inside the December Embossing Folder Heart Blooms and run it through the die cutting machine.
Finally, Attach this piece to a top folding A2 sized card front (4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″).
Spellbinders Stitched Heart – Adding the Heart.
Start by using white DMC thread (3 strands), to stitch the heart.
Next, chose one of the sentiments, and die cut it from the side pieces left over from the trellis
Then, die cut the flowers from the scraps as well, and leaves from green scrap.
Finally, Use Bearly art glue to attach the heart to the card, Foam Squares to attach the sentiment, and white glue to add the flowers and leaves.
Embellish with some small silver gems.
