Hi all! As you probably know, last year Stampin' Up introduced fabric into their line of products. Even though I don't really sew myself, I've really enjoyed having this line of products available!
These are some 3X3 cards that I made up as thank yous for customer orders. I had fun using both the Springtime Vintage and the Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric. I like how the fabric gives a soft feel to the card, and it was easy to incorporate since the colors in the fabric coordinate with the other Stampin Up prodcuts--card stock, ink, ribbon, etc.
Here's a closer look at one of the cards:
Hint: After I frayed the edges of the fabric a bit, I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to adhere the fabric to the card stock. Works great!
To add the 'buttons' to the card, I used the Sweet Buttons Embosslit with my Big Shot. The embosslit has 6 different buttons and can be found on page 36 of the Occasions Mini Catalog. Unfortunately I don't think my pictures really show how cute these little buttons are! I love this little embosslit, because it allows you to add buttons (in any color) without the added weight and dimension of a real button--which is nice if you mail a lot of cards!
And one more closer look:
Thanks for stopping by! Check back soon to see another project using fabric.
