Linda sent this card in and she couldn’t get out of the Christmas mood yet! I’m so glad – this is the cutest! It’s a thank you card and it’s just perfect with the little kids and their reindeer sweaters.

- Sewing on cards is one of my very favorite techniques. I usually attach my sewn panels to my card by using score tape over the stitches across the back of the panel. It keeps the stitches from unraveling. While stitching on paper is easy, it is less forgiving than stitching on fabric. If you make a mistake, you can’t really pull out your stitches without risking tearing the paper. So, every time you change the thread or bobbin, change from straight to zig-zag, adjust the size or length of your stitches, etc., try a few stitches on scrap paper. And, always make sure you have enough thread in your bobbin.
- Next time your looking for fun embellishments for your cards, check out the artificial flower isles. My bouquet on top of the bow is a flower pick from Hobby Lobby.
- Embossing plates and folders aren’t just for cardstock. Try them on your pattern/designer paper for an interesting effect. I used the Cuttlebug dotted Swiss embossing folder on the striped paper and the white card stock.
- Make a glittery frame around your image by sprinkling glitter over score tape applied placed around the outer edges.
