Do you ever want to make something special for a friend or loved one,
but don't have time for a large project?
Sew up a card!
I buy plain cardstock sets found at any craft store.
Sets include multiple blank cards and envelopes.
A variety of colors are available, or ivory or white.
Use a scalloped scissors to cut a fancy edge.
Stickers are fun too!
Cut out the shapes from fabric and sew them onto fabric or directly to the card.
This is a great use of scraps, even those tiny ones!
I save all of my well-used sewing machine needles for making cards.
The cardstock paper dulls a needle quickly,
so this is a perfect use for old needles!
It's also a great excuse to play with those fancy stitches on your machine!
Use a non-bleeding pen to write a verse, poem or saying.
Or just go with strips of fabric sewn directly onto the cardstock.
Add a sweet ribbon or quote.
Or, if you're feeling like trying out some new pens and paints,
Your friends will love them!
(All of these cards have been made by me!)
