Yesterday I was looking at my Linen Thread and the cardboard piece it comes on - looks kind of like a spool. That started this card! Funny how things like that happen, isn't it?
We tend to see cards everywhere... a purse, a painting, a piece of furniture, a flower.
Ever have a new card pop into your mind just as you are going to sleep? Now, that makes for easy sleep!
So this card is for each of you who sew (or would like to sew!) topped off with a touch of froufrou. It's also a nice way to pass on a bit of lace or ribbon.
Create a template by using a piece of cardstock 3" x 4".
1) Score along both short ends at a 1/2" and 1" (dotted lines)
2) Score at 1/2" on both long sides just between the two 1" score lines.
3) Cut on solid lines.
I created a template first. I then folded a piece of cardstock 3" x 8" in half to create a 3" x 4" card and used the template to mark my card in pencil; then cut through both layers.
