Stampin’ Up! Fabric on a Card

Looking for something different for a Christmas card?  Here is an idea that will make sure your cards stand out from the crowd.

Fabric Chrstmas Tree Card
Now isn't that fun?!  Wondering how I did it?  Here's the directions:

1.  Use the smaller pattern on the Perfect Setting Die (115961) to cut strips of Candy Cane Christmas Fabric (121715).

2.  Cut a triangle from a piece of Whisper White card stock with a base of 3 1/2" and height 4". IMG_1969wtmk
3. Lay down a strip of Sticky Strip near the bottom:

4.  Attach the first strip of fabric, pleating it as you go.

7.  Cut a 4 1/2" strip of Real Red 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon (119251).  Run a row of long stitches along one edge of the ribbon.  Pull the ends of the thread to gather the ribbon into a circle.

8.  Knot the ends of the thread and snip off the extra.  Apply Crystal Effects (101055) to the ends of the thread and the cut ends of the ribbon to prevent unravelling.

9.  Put a Real Red Glimmer Brad through the middle. (I hadn't yet applied the Crystal Effects in this photo)

10.  Attach to your card with Dimensionals.  I used Real Red for the base, and Blushing Bride for the mat.  For the background stamp I used the
"Peace Love Joy" stamp from the All Holidays set (114916), stamped in Blushing Bride.

In case you haven't noticed, I am having a lot of fun playing with Stampin' Up!'s new fabrics.  They make really unique projects, so I hope you will try them out yourself. 

Happy Stamping,
