Fabric Card


I did an online search for fabrics, now that I am in the mood for using fabric on my cards and found this, again by Loralie, called Gone Shopping. It is full of the cutest girlie images, and I have had this stamp by Inkadinkadoo hanging around for ages, seemed perfect for this image - she certainly looks as if she would never have time to write a diary. As a matter of fact, I used to keep a diary, gave it up when I was about sixteen. Hmm, read the sentiment and wonder............
For a 'how to' instruction on using fabric, scroll down to labels and click on fabric cards, I tell you how to do it there.

Enfys,

I love the idea of using fabric for cards. Do you use cotton or is any fabric ok to use?

Thanks for sharing your ideas - I am going to snatch this one definitely!
