A Baby Shower Card

I am going to a baby shower on Saturday so I worked on the card this weekend since I booked myself to work all week (why do I do that?). I knew I wanted to do something with my Sew Easy since I haven't got to use it much since I got it. It is not as easy to use as the name suggests. I can't seem to get it to puncture holes entirely through the paper so I have to let it perforate the holes, then I hand poke them the rest of the way. In the end, it looks good so I hope it works better with more practice. Anyway, I started by creating a patchwork effect out of paper and then stitching them together.

I then made an easel card base out of pink cardstock and glued the patchwork paper on it. I used Birthday Bash to make a scalloped triangle banner and used Lyrical Letters to do all of the words on the card. I also used some twine to hold the triangles together and pop-dotted them so they would stick off of the patchwork. I also cut two small flowers from Doodlecharms to give the card front something to stick on.

For some reason, it looks really busy in the pictures. I don't think it look that crazy in real life and my hubby agrees (and he is usually honest!). I am fairly happy with the way it turned out and I simply love the stitching!


  1. Wow--that's an amazing card! Well done!

  2. I love all the stitching. Looks great.


  3. I agree with your hubby. I like it. I might have to scraplift this. tfs
