Valentine Tag & Card Revealed

I never get the time to post to my blog with work getting in the way and the fact that most of the time, I forget to take pictures of the things I make before I give them away.  I remembered to take a picture of the tag I made for the All Things Tim 'Red & White' swap and then the card version I made to give to my loved ones.
So, I made the heart myself after seeing the same thing at Archivers for an outrageous price.  I just cut two pieces of canvas and then broke out the sewing machine and ran a simple stitch around the edge.  To get it "ruffed" up on the edges, I put them in the washing machine in a little garment bag and ran it through the rinse cycle, then ran them through the dryer.  They came out exactly how I wanted them.  I then used a blending tool to add color to the edge and stamped Tim's Cupid on it, then attached them with a heart pin that I bought at least 5 years ago! (Everyting has a purpose sooner or later!)
I hope the people who received them, enjoyed them.
