Sew Special


Happy April Fool's Day! The only joke here is that this card is the closest I ever get to sewing (My friend, Helen, can attest...). I made this card for the March birthday of my cousin who is a wonderful seamstress, and such a very special person.

2" x 2"

SewEasy (We R Memory Keepers)
Sew Easy Fancy Floss (We R Memory Keepers)
Ribbon (Hobby Lobby)

1 3/8" Circle Punch (SU!)
Scalloped Circle Punch (SU!)

Clear tape (3M)
ATG (3M)
Rotary Trimmer (Fiskars)



Cut a piece of dark purple card stock measuring 7" x 10", score it at 5", and fold.


Cut a piece of pink card stock measuring 4 7/8" x 6 7/8". Cut a piece of fabric about 4 1/4" x 6 1/4". Use the Sew Easy tool to punch holes through the paper about a 1/2" from the edge. Attach the fabric to the pink mat stitching through the holes in the pink mat, and using tape to anchor the thread to the back of the mat. Tie a double-loop bow onto a strip of ribbon, and mount it around the mat. Mount the mat onto the front of the card.


Stamp the sewing machine using black ink on white paper. Color with COPICS and SPICA pens. I used these colors:

  • Sewing Machine: RV0000, RV63, RV66
  • Presser Foot: C00, C3
  • Spool: E33
  • Thread: SPICA Pink
  • Daisies: RV69, SPICA Orange
  • Tulips: Y02
  • Leaves: YG95, 99

Mount on the front of the card using foam squares.


Stamp the sentiment on white paper using dark purple ink. Punch out with a 1 3/8" circle punch. Punch a scalloped circle from pink card stock. Glue the sentiment onto the scalloped circle. Mount on the front of the card using foam squares.

Thanks for stopping by!




This is sew cute! I have a machine, but just rarely sew on my cards! Too much work to get to it! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

What a lovely card! I just love the colors but more importantly the sewing theme! And yes I will attest that sewing is not your thing unless it's a card that needs sewing.... LOL
