Mother's Day Cards and a Tutorial

I am in love with this card! It is so dainty and feminine and the ruffle down the side just makes me happy. Want to learn how to add ruffles to your cards too? It couldn't be easier! Our Mother's Day Quote Cards and coordinating printed papers are now available in the store and online. Don't forget to pick up some 8x10 prints to frame for your Mom too... or yourself! 
Happy Friday! Brenda

Ruffle Paper Tutorial

Step 1:  Cut a long strip of cardstock and begin to accordion fold, making every other fold half as big as the previous fold.

Step 2: Once your strip is folded, place it on the front of your card, and place under the foot of your sewing machine.

Step 3: Begin to sew your paper, backstitching at the beginning to secure. Keeping your paper strip folded, sew over the folds to create a ruffled look. Backstitch at the end to secure.

Step 4: Assemble the rest of the card as shown, making sure to tuck one side of the quote card under the ruffles, and give to a mother you love.
