Its Fabric


The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to make a card with fabric on it (other than a bow).  You can use fabric as your background, make a flower from it, print your image on it or use it in whatever way you can dream up.  I guess you could call the lace fabric but the real fabric on this card is the background with the little girls.  I covered the edges with ribbon so they wouldn't fray but if I had left it I am sure you would have called it a distressed look.  I hope you will give this challenge a try.  If you aren't sure how to use fabric, there are lots of videos on the internet that will show you how to make a simple fabric flower and if you combine that with a favourite image, you have a card you can enter.

I found that the best way to adhere the fabric was to iron it onto paper backed fusible webbing first, peel the paper off and then iron it to card stock but I know of a wonderful card maker who just glues it to the card stock.  Now that I know it is really easy to work with, I am going to use fabric more often because I have some fantastic fabric by Loreli with images that would make the most fun cards so stay tuned.

The random winner of our challenge will receive a stamp of their choice from the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe and when we reach 10 entries, the design team will pick a Card of the Week and that person will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
