I was not paid or compensated for this post. The items were purchased with my own money because I love you guys.
I made these cards for my ‘Little Bit of Wonderful’ swap partner. I love how they turned out so thought I’d show you how I made them! I started out with some store bought plain cards and envelopes. If you are feeling crafty you could certainly make your own cards and envelopes. In fact here’s a quick envelope tutorial I found.
My swap partners colours were yellow & orange, so I pulled out this yellow felt. I used my best hand writing and a sharpie to write my greetings. Make sure that you leave enough space all around your words so that you have room to cut them out. I used a small amount of tacky glue and a cotton bud to smooth it out.You can see the glue dots on the ones I didn’t smooth out, so it is important! I glued the felt down and let everything dry completely.
Before I stitched the cards, I changed to an old ratty machine needle. Paper and card will blunt your needle quick smart! I set my stitch length a little longer and stitched around the felt. I left long thread tails at the beginning and end so I could use a hand sewing needle to thread the tails on top to the back. Then I just tied them off and trimmed. Then I stitched rows of zig zags. I just trimmed these threads for a loose look but you can tie them off as above or tape the threads down on the back. I think these are so cute and you can really personalize them! I know how much I’d love to receive one. They’re also a good excuse to buy pretty ribbons and trims….
Of course I’ll be off to the supermarket today as usual. I hope you’re having a marvelous weekend xxx
