Valentine Hugs

I've created this card using week 3 of this month's Viva la Verve sketches, created by Teresa.  I've discovered that I have a serious gap in my Nesties and dies when it comes to hearts so this one was cut free hand, or at least with a little stencil I made.
All edges have been sponged with Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap.  The heart has been sponged with SU's Real Red for more definition. 
When it comes to wrapping twine vertically on a tent fold card this way, the only solution I can come up with is to cut a tiny slit with my craft knife along the fold.  I also add a tiny touch of glue at the bottom so the twine doesn't slide around going in and out of an envelope.
The sentiment banner was made with a small square punch.
Supplies include:
Basic Grey Picadilly dp
My Minds Eye dp
Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap ink
SU Real Red ink
Verve Kind Words
SU button
Twine (The Twinery)
SU Real Red cardstock
Sewing machine
Small square punch

Bridget, I found your blog over at SCS. I was looking at the CAS Challenge "Hearts" As I was scrolling down your blog I came across this gem. This is adorable! I like your color and patterned paper choices. And the red bakers twine shows up beautifully. It was the prefect choice.

I too realized the other day that I'm lacking heart die cuts. And, like you, I've created my own templates too. Yours is just as a nice as any die cut.

Kind regards
