Deck the Halls Designer Fabric Card

Stampin Up Canada Fabric Card

 

Except for reattaching a button that has fallen off, I don’t sew.  The last time I touched a sewing machine was in Junior High when I made the mandatory apron in Home Economics. And that was a loooong time ago.

So, when Stampin’ Up! announced they were introducing a new line of fabrics my first thought was "not for me". But I was wrong!  I love this fabric. The patterns and colours are beautiful.

Now, since I don’t really sew, I knew I wouldn’t be making elaborate projects with these fabrics. And that’s okay because there are so many others ways I can use these fabrics in my paper crafting.

The fabrics are available in two different pattern assortments – Deck the Halls and Candy Cane. Scroll down to see a picture of each package. I love, love, love the way these designer fabrics coordinate with the paper, buttons, stamp sets and more in each of the Vintage and Candy Cane Suites that SU! has introduced for Christmas this year through the Holiday Mini catalogue

For this card, I cut a 2" x 6" piece of fabric with my tabletop paper cutter just as I would cardstock. I adhered the ends of the fabric to the back of the Always Artichoke cardstock with Sticky Strip. Taking a length of Always Artichoke Seam Binding, I cut the ends at a sharp angle and threaded one of the Deck the Halls designer buttons in Crumb Cake onto the seam binding before knotting. Add a stamped image and greeting and I’m done. Now, this is really easy card making!

 

This was one of four cards and projects we made at my Dreaming About Rubber Stamps Team Meeting this weekend.
