Ann's Tip:The diamond pattern on the papers makes it simple to create fun zig-zag designs.

The tags were printed from the free download on the Soft Nostalgia product page.

  1. With the fold on the top, cover the card with floral tile pattern. Cut 2 3/4"x6" of teal tile and trim along the tile lines on the right edge. Match up this zig-zag edge with the tiles on the floral tile paper and glue to the card, trimming off the excess.
  2. Cut 2"x6" of peach tile and cut along the tiles the same way as the teal. Match up the zig-zag to the tile lines on the teal so that a vertical column of teal tiles is showing. Glue down and trim off excess. Ink the edges of the card with a brown inkpad.
  3. Print "Mom" on a tag from the free download and foam tape to the card 1" from the right and 3/4" from the top. Add a small brown/pink stitched bow to the top of the tag.
  4. Place the dress form Dazzles™ on the peach part of the card, 1/2" from the left. Place the buttons and hearts in each of the teal tiles. Back a flower with teal tiles and trim around the sticker. Glue to card 1 3/4" from the right and 2 1/2" from the top. Back the pincushion with peach and glue to the card 1/4" from the right and 1/2" from the bottom. Place the "You're Sew sweet" to the left of the flower and pincushion as shown.
  5. For the inside: Cut along the tile lines of the floral tile pattern to create a zig-zag 6 1/2" long strip as shown. Glue across the middle of the card. Print "Happy Mother's Day" on a tag and glue to the card 1" from the left and bottom. Place the sewing machine Dazzles™ to the right of the tag as shown.
