Next, get a needle and a string. You can choose whatever color your card requires!
Start threading it into the lines of the card. Don't worry if the back part becomes really messy, all we need is to make sure the shape appears complete in the front.
Quick tip: You can try this trick to make things a bit easier and faster. Prick holes in various areas that would make the heart shape appear. This way, you know right away where to insert the thread.
Keep going around until you fill in the missing bits in the heart shape. Once happy, lock it in by tying into a knot that sits at the back as seen below.
Now you can add your choice of die cut foam.
As for me, I've got this adorable one that says: Thank You which I am going to adhere in the middle of the heart later.
Before adhering the die cut, mount your card first into another one. As you can see, I chose a white card to go under my brown card. This way, the messy back would be hidden. Just make sure you cut it down to the right size.
Look at how that white border made it look better!
You can now adhere your die cut text on top. I'm using this glue from Stamp It Up which has a really thin nozzle. This is a fantastic glue for those adhering stuff with really intricate details such as this die cut. I totally recommend it!
