Triple Threat Valentine's Day Cards

Hi Crafters,

I mentioned in my previous post that my parents purchased me a new sewing machine as a gift.  My mom specifically chose the Husqvarna Viking Emerald 183 for me because of all the extra stitches it had thinking I could use it for paper crafting as well.  I finally got it up and running after a bit of a bobbin casing user error issue.

I lowered the pressure on the presser foot for sewing on card stock and it did beautifully!  I call these cards a triple threat because they have sewing, cuttlebug, and cricut (on most) of them.

I stitched a heart boarder on the edge of the cards.  I used swiss dots on the white background.  I used several 2x2 cuttlebug embossing folders for the embossed images.  The dicut hearts are from George and Basic Shapes. The ones that aren't stamped on the outside are stamped on the inside with the same sentiment.  The stamp is a studio G stamp and fit the theme perfectly!  Click on the pictures for larger images.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting,
