Two More Fabric Cards from Newest YouTube Video

Today I am sharing a couple more cards I show in my latest YouTube video here on how to use fabric to add beauty and dimension to our handmade cards. I chose to emboss the front of these cards with my embossing folders which are often sadly neglected these days. The embossing also adds great texture and makes for a very elegant easy card. I added a beautiful sympathy sentiment and another die to the inside of this card:




I make and teach Christmas cards all year so I am never in a panic come December to make a bunch more. I love how this one turned out with Christmas fabric, a poinsettia embossing folder from Tim Holtz, gold Nuvo Drops and a beautiful sentiment die from Sue Wilson. Here is my simple wish on the inside of this card:



I am entering the first card in the Anything Goes challenge at Dies R Us and in the Something New challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

I love your video on how to add fabric to a card. I purchased some fabric a long time ago to make my son a card and now I can do that. Plus you could use any fabric for any holiday. This is so very cool, thank you Karen.

I love embossing and think it adds such a subtle texture to our creations, Karen! I need to dig out what's left of my quilting fabrics and try this technique! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
