Miss You

Creating cards is a fun way to use a few simple elements of a pattern. 

Decide on a card size and create a template for the card. This makes pattern sizing easier to figure. Once your piecing is complete, you can position it on your card template and then decide on paper and other little elements you would like to add to your card.

The Frames, Tags, and More, category on the website, has so many patterns that are perfect for your cards.

I've created this sweet 5x7 card, "Miss you SEW much", using the Sew and Sew Pattern Collection and the Scalloped Shapes Pattern Set. I wanted the mouse to look as if he was really sewing, so used some DMC Floss for the thread. I then added some buttons to go along with the theme and for some added dimension.
