Fabric and Stitching on Cards

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are having a wonderful day!  Spring is finally here, so to celebrate, I whipped up a cute Spring card!  Stephanie here, to show you how to use fabric scraps and your sewing machine to stitch on your cards!

Step #1   Gather your supplies!

I used the following:
SP & Company Mix n Match Holidays Stamp Set
Sewing Machine
Scraps of Fabric
Cardstock
Embossing Ink
Embossing Powder
Chalk Ink
Flowers
Buttons
Corner Punch
Adhesive


Step #2  Gather your fabric scraps and place them on your cardstock with a little adhesive so they will stay in place.  I used four 2 1/2" squares and made a four patch design.  Cut cardstock down to size.


Step 3#  Start stitching your fabric to card.  I used a zig-zag stitch vertically, then horizontally across the card.  


Step #4  Then, I stitched all the way around the card and fabric, using the same zig-zag stitch.


Step #5  Add decorative stitching to another piece of cardstock.  I used a tulip pattern since I had tulips in my fabric.  Stamp your getting using embossing powder and embossing ink.  Cut down to size.


Step #6  Add your card top to card base with adhesive.  Use your corner punch and chalk ink and add buttons to your flowers


Step #7  Add everything to your card and Voila!  You have a beautiful Spring card to celebrate the season of renewal!  Enjoy! 


I hope I have inspired you today by thinking outside the box.  I originally bought my sewing machine to do decorative stitching on my cards, but have since fell in love with sewing and quilting!   This is any easy and quick way to add just a little flare to your cards!  Hop on over to SP & Company and check out all the great stamps and supplies!
