Fun Fabric Cards and Card Idea Roundup!

So I had some birthdays and of course Mothers day these past few weeks and I wanted to make some cards. I love this Paisley fabric I have so I wanted to incorporate it somehow. So I came up with the idea to do a cut-away and put the fabric underneath it.

Here are two that I made:

On both of them I just...
  • found a clip art or font that I liked and printed it out for my template (I used a cupcake and "m" for the ones above)
  • folded a piece of paper into 4ths to make the card (like a traditional card you would fold).
  • on the bottom right quadrant I traced my template and then used my cool Fiskars fingertip craft knife (a cooler version of a exacto-knife) to cut out the template area
  • taped my fabric (or felt- like in the cupcake one) on part that would be underneath the template.
  • I just glued down the top half to the bottom so the fabric is covered (and you don't see the tape)
  • embellished the card with some dashes and print!

Here are some other great card ideas I have found on other blogs!
