Hello, everyone. Today I got to play with fabric.... on my card! How fun is that? The ways to use it challenge on SCS was to use fabric on your card. I thought it would be fun to try cutting some fabric with a sizzix die (or several as it turned out). First I pulled out some fabric scraps and of course, they were wrinkled and needed to be pressed. Then I found some iron on interfacing, so I could use that to stiffen the fabric. I went ahead and ironed some interfacing on several scraps and then put them through my cuttlebug with a few sizzix bigz and originals dies. I also did some without the interfacing. As far as cutting, there didn't seem to be any significant difference between those with or without the interfacing, but I do think I like the fabric stiffness better with the interfacing.
For my card I used a Sizzix bigz die from the Hello Kitty line called flower boquet. I just purchased this one this week at JoAnn's. If you're looking for these, they're bright pink! But the store had them on a different rack than the other dies.
I used a flower from echoes of kindness for the flower stem and leaves, then just glued the flower over the stamped one and added a button. I tied a strip of fabric around like a ribbon. The lacy edging is a Martha Stewart punch.
What's in it?
stamps: echoes of kindness (SU)
ink: garden green, real red
paper: basic black, real red, whisper white
other: fabric, cuttlebug, Hello Kitty flower boquet (Sizzix bigz die), black brads, button, black crochet cotton, ticket corner punch, doily lace punch (Martha Stewart), sponge, foam tape
Thanks for stopping by. Be blessed.
