For this card, I attached the yellow fabric to a sheet of white cardstock using the Xyron. Then I embossed the fabric with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The fabric had a sort of brown "distress" look to it, but after embossing, I rubbed more brown ink onto it.Here is a better shot of the embossing. I printed the sentiment off the computer. I am in love with my computer-generated sentiments!
This next card also has fabric for the background. I purchased a bunch of quilting quarters at Joann Fabrics. (Don't ask why! I don't even sew!) This cranberry paisley was one of the fabrics in my stash. I used the Xyron to attach it to the background paper, then added a bunch of vintage looking items. The "ladies" were cut from some Graphic 45 paper.
I did another computer-generated sentiment.
Check out the stickpin. It's K&Company and has been in my stash for about 5 years! This card was published in the June issue of Scrapbooking.com Magazine.
