Right now I am in the process of making some commissioned cards for Mother's Day. I tried to keep it simple and fresh. I also tried my very first real stitches, I am so proud of myself. My mother had been trying to coax me into sewing for a very long time. Still a long way to go Mum! Maybe we'll get there someday. For now I will post the material
Pizzazz papers - Vintage from HOTP
White felt from Craft Planet
Anita's Outline stickers - Mother's Day Silver
Button and Thread - local haberdashery store.
Ink (have to check later on)
- Cut a tall blank card and cut spotted paper to fit the front of the card.
- Cut a square felt and flower from striped paper. Top off with a hand cut circle and button to match.
- Draw a tag template and cut it out. Cut a patterned paper big enough to cover the edges of the tag as shown. Stick with PVA glue and then add stitches. Use ribbon to attach tag to card.
- Attach everything as shown.
Would love to know what you think!
