Fabric Card tutorial

I've had loads of requests for a little video on how I make fabric cards. So without further ado -- ta da!






I am in London at the moment, sprucing up Alex's flat. I had fond ideas that I was going to waft around like Ann Maurice (you know, that house doctor...............), carefully placing a potted plant here and there, maybe a spot of gentle de-cluttering. Alex however, had other ideas, she had made a list. So here I am covered in paint, honestly, it's everywhere, my hair has gone white in a single day. Today the kitchen and bathroom, tomorrow the sitting room.

Lovely tutorial. Great fabric! Hope that when you finally get done painting you can get it off of you! You're a doll to do it esp. ceilings!

Enfys,
These cards are to die for. My Red Hat ladies would go crazy. Do you ever sell these cards. I am not talented enough to make one. I am the Sandy From Kentucky. How is the weather in London? We don't have any snow and have had 50's the last few days... Have a great Tuesday and don't paint to much.

Thanks for the great tutorial Ens. Hmmm, no rest for the wicked, LOL Just kiddin', bet Alex really appreciates Mom's help.

Enfys,
I tired this twice. I cannot believe I am the first one to post a message. These fabric cards are to die for. My Red Hats would love these. Do you ever sale them. We finally have great weather here in the 50's. Take care and don't paint to much. I have never been to London. I am Sandy From Ky. Have a great Tuesday.

Oh my! I never would have thought to use fabric. That is a fabulous card! Great video. Did you do this in London or at home. How do you keep supplies in US and Overseas? You must buy 2 of everything right?? hee hee

Wow En!!! Very cute! I have read how to do this, but never seen a video. It helps to watch it being done. Do you find those fabrics over here too? I haven't bought fabric in ages! I do need to buy some to make a cover for my cricut. So maybe I'll scout out some images like these. TFS

Sarah xx said...

Ha Ha Enfys, I can just see you as Ann Maurice - but much less annoying - I am sure you can still waft around as her once the painting is all done?? Good luck with it. xxx

Debbie said...

Enfys,

I'm a long time follower of your blog. I just loved the video and had forgotten how much I love your fabric cards. I'm so glad you did the video.
Is the Loralee fabric available in the U.S?
I love your blog too!

Take care... hope you have time to visit my blog.

Great video! Once again you have motivated me to try something new!

Thanks so much for the informative video.

DonnaMundinger said...

Great tut En! I bought Loralie fabric after seeing your cards quite awhile ago and then never got around to using it. Thanks for the video AND the reminder. xxD

freetimegone said...

That is so darn cute. I love our fabric cards. I thought you had to use some iron on stiffener so it was great to see your video and that you just use glue stick. I will have to try this now. Is this fabric available in the U.S? I've asked at JoAnns about other fabrics that you have used and they didn't know what I was talking about.

Kristie said...

So cute, I never thought of using fabrics like that. I am going to have to keep my eyes open for some fabrics that I can use like that.
Thanks!

Lisa said...

This is such a cute card Enfys! Can't wait to view the video. You are so talented!!!!
