I’d love to send my mum a sewing themed card for her birth­day, please help!

Dorothy says: Lawn Fawn is an Amer­i­can com­pany with a fab­u­lous range of stamp sets and their Sewn with Love stamp is per­fect for a sewing mad mum! The stamps in­clude a sewing ma­chine, plus a pin­cush­ion, scis­sors, reels of thread, but­tons and a thim­ble. What is clever about this set are the greet­ings – there are lots of pos­si­bil­i­ties for puns us­ing the word ‘sew’. You can stamp and colour the im­ages then cut them out as they are such sim­ple shapes but there is a co­or­di­nat­ing die set too. I’ve cre­ated a base with pinked edges to give it a fab­ric feel and added a bor­der that gives the il­lu­sion of a ta­ble. Cover the base card with pretty pat­terned pa­pers and then colour the im­ages to match. Ar­range on the card as shown and stamp the greet­ings to fin­ish. The Lawn Fawn Sewn with Love stamp is avail­able from Seven Hills Crafts for £11.50.
