No, not really, but this card sure is! I had fun with this one, especially since I've been sick all week. Again... Anyway, the challenge at Our Creative Corner this week is to use fabric on our cards or projects. I confess, I'm not big into using fabric - before I had kids, I dabbled in quilting a little, and I really do LOVE fabric - but it's not something I've really incorporated into my cards. So I was glad to have a good reason to try it out.
My idea was to create a ruffle trim with some of the SU Springtime Vintage fabric. I have to say - the fabric is wonderful and I wish I knew enough about sewing to make something with the rest of it! To make my ruffle I applied a length of Sticky Strip to a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and just laid the fabric across the panel, gathering it into a ruffle as I went. No sewing required! I put a panel of Not Quite Navy card stock on top, trimmed out with the scallop ribbon border punch. My flower is from Friends 24-7 - I know I used this a couple weeks ago, and it was still out on my stamping table and just called to me for this card... It's stamped in NQN and colored with Baja Breeze marker. I cut and embossed with my Nestabilities and then added piercing in the scallops to match the punched trim. Some distressing and sponging, along with crochet trim and a Tiny Tag punched sentiment (tied on with embroidery floss) finished off this sweet little vintage card.
We'd love to have you play along with us this week - go dig out some fabric and get your creative juices flowing! And be sure you visit the OCC blog to see what the rest of the team created this week. I promise you'll be glad you did!
