Stitch Together a Quick Thank You!

It’s National Sewing Month, so for my Year of Cards project, I decided to incorporate some fabric, and do a little stitching to create this fall-themed thank you card.

Begin by cutting a 6” x 12” patterned cardstock to use as your card base. Fold in half and crease the card spine.

Cut a 5” fabric square using your pinking shears.

Next, cut several fabric flowers using your Fuse Creativity System®. To get the best results cutting fabric, sandwich your fabric between two layers of cardstock, place between the die and cutting plate, and run it through your Fuse.  Your fabric edges should come out crisp.

Center your fabric square on your card base, place two rows of fabric flowers across the square and run a strip of washi tape on top of the flowers to tack them down.

Open your card up, and stitch inside the fabric square to attach it to the card. Next, switch to a zig-zag stitch and stitch several rows across your fabric flowers and washi tape.

Punch out a rooster and attach him to the card front with paper glue or double-stick tape. Last of all, add a “thank you” using adhesive letters.

Make a few extra ones to have on hand.  It’s always good to have a handmade thank you card or two ready to send to a thoughtful someone.
