Remember this cool fabric I got at the thrift store a few weeks ago? I made a great card with it, and I will show you how!
Normally, I like to use the 5.5 X 4 inch cards from Michaels. But I wanted to make sure my fabric would have show up so I used the 6.5 X 5 inch card instead.
So I cut a burnt orange piece of Bazzill cardstock to fit my card.
Then I glue it on the front of my card.
I cut a yellow piece of cardstock out. I picked colors based on my material and what I felt looked good. Measurements are not something that I am particularly good at. I am that person that "eyeballs it." So I cut the yellow piece to be 5 3/4 X 4 1/4.
Then I adhered a strip of my fabulous material (about an inch wide) to the yellow paper. I used regular tape to stick it to the back of the yellow piece.
Using glue dots, I adhered the yellow block to my orange card. I centered it on top of the orange.
A year or two ago I got these felt leaves from Joann's. They have this great little section before you check out with $1 stamps and things. They usually put the out early--so if you see something that catches your eye, you better get it. It might not be there later!
These leaves have adhesive on the back already, but I like to reinforce them with some more glue.
I lined the leaves along the inside fabric boarder. I could've omitted the leaves, but it's so much more fun to add stuff! Plus, your recipient gets to experience texture, and I think that is fun.
Here I add my sentiment. I have had these letters for a couple of years, and unfortunately, I can't remember what brand the stickers are. If you know, let me know, and I will post it. You may can still get them (I can't remember how long I have had them).
This is my finished card. I love it! But what if you chose to decorate the leaves...
I added some glitter glue (Tim Holtz/Ranger Ink Distress Stickles Antique Linen). Let it dry for a while!
Looks nice, but I like the leaves in their pure state. So my decorated leaf will come up somewhere else, I'm sure! Thanks for stopping by! Until next time...
