Sew Sweet Birthday Card

 I have so many pieces of scrap printed paper piled on my craft desk, that I am always trying to find new ways to use them up.  Some of the pieces looked like fabric so I thought it would be fun to piece them together like a quilt. I simply glued triangles and rectangles onto a piece of card stock slightly smaller than my card base. Next I stamped and die cut sewing images from a Lawn Fawn set. To add more cuteness I stamped a face onto the pincushion, glued on some buttons and wrapped embroidery floss around the spool.  Finally, I stamped "It's Your Birthday "onto a piece of ribbon.  Test your ink before stamping as some inks will bleed on certain ribbons. This card was fun to make and will be perfect for my quilt-sewing friend. I am certainly going to make this card or similar ones again because I really enjoyed 'quilting' with my paper scraps.  Hope you liked this post enough to post a comment...I love hearing from you!

That's a cool sewing-themed card. Your patchwork background goes so perfectly with your theme too. Hope you weren't too shaken following the earthquake on Friday.
