Thank You Card

We're back with another card for your crafty card making needs, I sure hope you will enjoy this quick & easy tutorial!

1) Using Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink and a baby wipe you are going to need to distress the edges of your 5 3/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches square piece of pattern paper. Once you've wet the edges of your piece of paper you will then take you fingernail and rake it back and forth. Curl the edges randomly around the edges. Let it dry.

2) Once your piece of paper has dried you will then adhere it down in just a couple of spots. Using the sewing machine you will stitch around the edge of your paper. Add you sentiment to the upper side of your card, like shown.

3) Sew a couple of white buttons in the upper right hand corner using a cotton thread. Also choose three different sheets of pattern papers. Cut three small pieces all from different patterns. NO 90 degree angles on any piece. Make them smaller on one end then the other. The piece going across the bottom use a Thread Water Border Punch or anything else that will make scallops.

4) Using the Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink be sure to ink all your edges of your pieces. Including the edges of your card base. Adhere the scalloped edge piece first across the bottom. Next adhere the other two pieces like shown. Add embellishments and a home made flower to the lower left hand corner.

FLOWER TUTORIAL: This flower is made by cutting one circle (brown piece) at a random size. Then using a scalloped circle punch make another larger circle (green piece). Wad these two circles up into little balls and then flattin out add ink to distress them. Layer them and then sew a button to the center with the cotton thread.
