Sweet Little Mother's Day Card

This card is so sweet - but it requires sewing, so that may scare some of you. But it wasn't hard - I promise. In order to sew the stem, just draw a stem pattern (or stamp yourself a stem in Versamark) and little leaves, then using your paper piercer to poke little holes every 1/8" or so. Then, take your paper sewing needle (finer is better) and sew with about 3 strands of embroidery thread. Knot off at the end (or tape) and you're done. To make the little pot, just cut a small 1" square and trim an edge on a slight slant, flip it over to copy the exact same slant on the other side and trim. Add a 1/4" x 1-1/4" brim to the pot and you're done. What do you think? I made this project for my up-up-up-line's newsletter, too.
