All Hearts Come Home for Christmas


This is my second post today.  Scroll down for my Dynamic Duos challenge post.

 
My card base is SU Cherry Cobbler and the mats are SU Early Espresso.  The red stripe and red print are from Teresa Collins Noel 6x6 pad from last year.  The image is from SU Welcome Christmas and is stamped in Early Espresso ink on some retired SU DSP.  The sentiment is from MFT's PI-Sending You a Little Christmas stamped in SU Cherry Cobbler ink on SU Naturals White CS.  I punched it out with SU Wide Oval punch and sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges, handcut a mat and adhered it with foam dimensionals.  The small banner is cut with MFT's Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Flags Layers dies.  I sewed 3 small heart punches for the banner elements on the right side, added a Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon bow and my card was done.
Here is a look at the insde. I added a Naturals White mat with a strip of the DSP and a punched heart.  The sentiment from SU More Merry Messages is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

 
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Merry Monday at Always Playing with Paper:  Use stripes, red, chocolate and stars or hearts.
The sketch is from Viva la Verve November Week 2

Happy Stamping,
