Cut 8-1/2”x5-1/2” cardstock panel.
Cut 4-1/2”x2” burlap strip and 4-1/2” length of lace.
Position burlap on right edge of cardstock, 3/4” from bottom of cardstock. Tuck lace under top edge of burlap strip, overlapping by 1/2”.
Set VIVO™ by SINGER® Create & Repair Machine for straight stitch. Thread top of machine and bobbin with all-purpose thread, in color that contrasts with burlap. Carefully stitch 1/4” from edge along all four sides of burlap. (Note: The more slowly the card is sewn, the more control you will have guiding the cardstock while stitching. The presser foot will help guide the cardstock evenly while stitching.)
Backstitch at the beginning and end of the stitching to help secure the thread in place. (Note: Backstitching secures machine stitching so threads do not become loose and pull out. It is done by reversing a few stitches on top of or just next to those machine stitches at the beginning or end of a line of machine sewing.)
Remove card from machine. Trim thread tails.
Fold cardstock in half to make 4-1/4”x 5-1/2” side-fold card.
Adhere buttons to burlap as shown.
