Mother's Day Card

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)

How To:

  1. Cut a tall blank card and cut spotted paper to fit the front of the card.
  2. Cut a square felt and flower from striped paper. Top off with a hand cut circle and button to match.
  3. 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.
  4. Attach everything as shown.
TIPS: Do not stretch felt and pass ribbon behind the spotted paper. I rarely attach it directly to the front as I feel it adds texture!

Would love to know what you think!
