Hey there, it’s Becki, here to share with you a set of cards I created using inspirational quotes as the sentiments. With each new year comes resolutions, organization, and new beginnings. As January wears on the newness and excitement of the year begins to wear off and I think everyone could use a little encouragement.
On each of these cards I did a little machine stitching. I thought you might like to see how I finish the inside of my cards so they have a bit more of a finished look instead of looking at the underside of the stitching.
Here’s what my card looked like, on the inside, after I finished stitching:It’s not very pretty. Don’t worry, we’re going to fix that. The next thing I did was add some adhesive (not liquid) on the inside of the card on top of the stitching:
It’s kind of hard to see in the photo but make sure you add adhesive right over top of the loose threads. Then I cut a piece of coordinating patterned paper about a 1/4 of an inch smaller than the inside of a card. (For an A7 card you’ll want to cut it 5 1/4″ x 4″.)
Then, I just put the patterned paper right over top of the stitching.
Here is the set of cards I created with inspirational quotes:
I used the same technique to cover all the stitching on the inside of the cards:
Good luck with your New Year’s Resolutions! Thanks for visiting the Pebbles blog today! I hope you’ve been inspired to create a few cards with inspirational quotes as sentiments.
