Stitched hearts Hello

 I was inspired by some cards shown by Shelly Gardner at Leadership 2014 at Houston to make some stitched hearts cards.  This is one of the cards I made.  The hearts were a little more tricky to stitch than stars because they are asymmetric and they kept shifting with the bottom feeds- so using a pointed tweezer to keep it straight helped.  The paper is Fresh Prints DSP  and Red and Silver Shimmer punched with small heart punch.

Actually it was much easier than I thought.  This came together in less than 10 minutes.
The sentiment is from the Six-Sided Sampler heat embossed with white embossing powder for a clean and simple hello card. 

I didn't want it bulky so I could mail it easily.
