Use a pretty fabric on a handmade card

It has been simply ages since I have done any stamping (or any other craft either) mainly because of serious health issues just sapping all my motivation. But I am well and truly on the road back. Then having a friend stay with us who was very interested in learning how to stamp, just had me resurrecting my dormant card making skills!

In addition to this I have decided to join this week's Less is More Challenge which is to use a recycled item in our card this week. Here is my take. It was an image from an old cot sheet that had seen better days. It is not quite a fabric applique card but just as pretty.

Instructions for recycling fabric as a centre piece on your card

Cut and fold a navy card as the base. Then cut a light blue leather grain card to 9 x 13cm as a layer and adhere on top of navy card. Cut the image into a oval shape from the fabric and glue the edges to the light blue card with craft glue. Using craft glue to adhere a lovely decorative ribbon to cover cut edges of fabric. Tie a knot in the centre of a double sided satin ribbon and adhere to the base of the oval. So simple and yet effective.
