I started this card with a light green card base and layered a wine red card stock over top which I then stitched together. I printed out the tic tac frame and sewed along the lines separating the squares with a straight stitch. I then went along those stitches with black embroidery floss. Next I hand drew a line outside of the frame and cut along the outside as well as the small inner squares. I ran this through the Cuttlebug with the Kassie's Brocade embossing folder. I mounted it on the base using foam adhesive. I then printed out the O's on the same light green as the base and the X's in a slightly darker green, and mounted them on the base using a thicker layer of foam adhesive. On all the hearts of the X's and O's I added some Prima flowers and a heart shaped jewel. I cut a tab from a Spellbinders Label 8 die from black card stock and cut it in half. I stamped the CTMH 'with love' sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I then placed it under the frame on the left hand side of the card.
