Miscellaneous Monday-Spool of Thread card

     Happy Valentine's Day, a day late.  I found this card on Pinterest and thought it was so cute.  I am a member of the American Sewing Guild and the Quilter's Anonymous group.  I think this card would be perfect to send to my fellow members for their birthdays.

1. Your cardstock needs to be cut 3 1/2 by 10 inches and then folded in half.

2. Place the folded cardstock at the 2 1/2 mark on the envelope punch board, then punch.

3. Flip the card over and punch again at the 2 1/2 inch mark.  You now have one side of your spool of thread.

4. Repeat on the other side of the card.  You need to use Whisper White card stock because it is light weight enough to punch both layers at the same time.

   I used the hostess stamp set Love You Sew from the Occasion catalog for the sentiment and the hearts. Can't wait to see the reaction to the birthday cards I plan to make with this set.

Come back tomorrow for Technique Tuesday.
