Honestly, it is not easy to make the cards below.
1st - it takes time to select the suitable paper.
2nd - it takes time to select the colour.
3rd - it takes time to "control" the sewing machine. Argh... i am not good in sewing!
however, i manage to make some cards for my friends who were born in the month of August.
The paper from BasicGrey is nice enough. It makes the card perfect. In order to allow the paper to stand up, i added on words and a brad only. A piece of Basic Grey 15cm x15cm card allowed me to make 1.5 cards. So, i added on other papers to make the card on right.
Another from Basic Grey.
Just simple arrangement + simple stitches - i think it looks good enough.
