Hey out there! Thanks for stopping by on this great Friday. Today's Fast Friday Card may not seem as fast as some of the others, but believe me it is. It is a basic one-layer card with embellishments. The cool new thing to do is create your own hand-crafted embellishments. I really love fabric, so I thought of a way to make a fabric flower (I'm sure others have done this before me). I did this before on the baby layout here and also on a baby frame that I'll share with you soon. To make the fabric flower, simply follow the steps below. I may add a video tutorial in a couple of weeks if it's needed, so let me know if you want to 'see' me create one.
The card is very simple, but the added embellishments make it seem like you worked all night on it! This card took me about 25 minutes to complete and most of that time was used thinking of what I wanted to add next! So, if you were to follow the steps, I'm sure it could be done in about 15 minutes, if not less. As you can see in the close-up photo, I leave the fabric rough on the edges. This adds lots of texture and I like the added frayed edges.
Have a great day!
