Valentine's Day Card Made From Old Jeans!

I made this adorable Valentine's Day card for my daughter from a scrap of denim from an old pair of her jeans. I marked where I wanted each stitch, measuring 1/4" from the edge and 1/4" between holes. I tacked the jean to the front of the card with a couple of dots of white glue so that the material would not move around as I stitched. After I allowed the glue to dry, I began stitching with all 6 strands, taping the end of the tread to the inside of the card. Once I stitched around the heart, I sniped the thread and taped it to the back of the card. I attached the button leaving enough at the beginning and end to tie a little bow. I used scrap booking paper to cover the stitch work on the inside of the card.
