You've Captured My Heart

Happy Thursday!

I'm not usually much of a card maker...but lately this has changed. I will be starting my first year of college this week and I know my schedule will be super busy and hectic, so I have been making cards in advance to send to my boyfriend who lives 600km away. This way I will have a bunch of sweet notes/cards to just drop in the mail and let him know I'm thinking of him. :) 

As soon as I saw the "you've captured my heart" ribbon in the Dazzling Pretties Ribbon Pack, I knew I had to use it on a card. It's so versatile! You can mist it, cut it, sew it etc. On my card I chose to leave it's natural colour but snipped it into 2 pieces. 

 I diecut a "speech bubble" sort of shape out of the discovery girl glitter cardstock and layered it over some white tissue paper and white thread. Some mist splatters, in love in Italy dew drops, hand drawn hearts, and gold airmail washi tape give it a bit more detail.
I added a bit of glitter to the edges of the diecut shape, sewed through the ribbon with pink thread/my sewing machine, and added a button to finish it off.
The button was just a plain wooden button which I embossed with gold embossing powder then sewed on with simple white thread.

My post is also up over at the Chattering Robins blog today!
