Bleeding Hearts Card Front

Hello everyone, Christmas is over and the New Year is starting soon. This year went by so fast, I think or maybe I am just that busy, LOL.

For todays post I tried something I have done in the past just not on handmade paper. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but it worked great. The card fronts are called Stitching Cards and that was the very first thing I started making before getting into all the other crafts I am into now. Here are the basic things you need to begin. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the holes already put into the paper.

 This one may show it better if you enlarge it.
Here is a picture of the flowers done. There is a pattern you have to follow. With the handmade paper, some of the holes (because they are so close together) did rip some, but I made due.
And here is the completed card front. What you do is adhere this to the front of a cardstock to make a card and then you can add any stamped phrase you would like. This is just many of the hundreds of patterns I have purchased. Some are just beautiful but very involved. This one took about 3 hours to complete and that is not including making the paper.
 This turned out so well, I am going to make some more on the handmade paper. I love making my own paper and trying different things to make with it.
