Stitching layers of paper either using hand-stitching or machine stitching can make your thank you card unique, personal, and fun! I love to sew and thought why not incorporate some thread into my card making. I used embroidery thread and my sewing machine to assemble my thank you card’s many layers and ribbon accents.
- Mini Bowdabra
- Hair Bow Tool & Ruler
- Thank You, Butterfly, & Flower Stamp
- Circles Blue Bobbin Ribbon
- Olive Reversible Bobbin Ribbon
- Embroidery Thread
- Sewing Machine or Hand-Stitch
- Hot Glue Gun
- Card & Cardstock
Some Supplies Pictured Below:
1. I began by cutting the bobbin ribbon to fit across the first layer of my cardstock. I then inserted a cardstock tag onto the ribbon.
2. Then using a zig-zag stitch I assembled the bobbin ribbon to the cardstock. A hand-stitch using embroidery thread and an embroidery needle is also an option.
3. I then stitched square cardstock tags that were stamped with “Thank You”, a butterfly, and a flower. (Sidenote: My daughter who is 8yrs old was crafting with me in my studio and was the one who designed the stamped tags. I promised I would give her credit for her great stamping ability.)
4. Next, using a large zig-zag stitch I sewed the cardstock outline to the card.
5. To finish my card I used the Mini Bowdabra and Hair Bow Tool & Ruler (metric side) to design small little bows for the card.
6. I created two exact bows.
7. I added a finishing ribbon to cover the Bowdabra Bow Wire using hot glue to attach the knotted bobbin ribbon.
8. Lastly, I attached each bow to the card using hot glue.
9. The Sewn & Stitched Thank You Card is complete.
