Hello! I had time to make a card to participate in the Papertrey Make-It-Monday #79 Challenge. You can read all about it on Nicole's blog here. Basically, you glue a piece of fabric to cardstock and then use your dies to cut out shapes. The cardstock stabilizes the fabric. I decided to use one of my favorite dies - the Hexagon cover plate to cut out some hexagons. I had a bit of trouble getting the shapes to cut through, even with using the metal shim and running it through three times. I guess I should have run it through a few more times, because when I cut Beautiful Blooms die cuts, they cut through beautifully. Anyway, I ended up having to snip here and there with my scissors to get the hexagons out. I made a whole card front of the hexagons, so I will have some for other cards too. I used a white hexagon cover plate frame over top of the fabric hexagons - this helped cover up some of the frayed edges of the hexagons. I used the new Thanks Always PTI set for the sentiment, and the Giga impression plate for the base. The fabric charm square pack I used was from Moda - "Vintage Modern" by Bonnie & Camille. I just pulled these charm squares out of my quilting stash. :)
Thanks Melissa for such a fun video - now I know what to do with my quilting scraps!
