My Art - cardmaking - fabric pansies

I used fabric on this card!! There is so much wonderful fabric avaible that can so nicely be incorporated into cardmaking. Consider using scraps from your quilting or sewing. Easily create coordinating cards for gifts you may be giving. A large amount of Christmas cards can also be made in very short order using fabric!! Just keep an eye out for a pattern that is easily cut out!!

I used Heat and Bond on the back of the fabric and it just needed to be ironed to the front of the card. There are other products (stitch witchery) out there that can be used as well. Ask at your local fabric or craft store. I bought mine at Michaels years ago.

Added a metal embossed butterfly with 3D foam tape and a flight path in black marker. The stitched border in gold gel pen mimicks the gold in the fabric. A greeting could easily be added as well.

So consider what supplies you might already have on hand for making a quick sets of fabric cards!!
