JAI 167 Just add fabric

Well hello there :)
I'm still catching up on sleep as I write this from a fabulous few days spent at the SU! South Pacific convention. I had such a lovely time catching up with the rest of the JAI girls there, and some other special friends (waving hi to Di, Sam and Kelly!!!). The convention itself was stuffed full of fabulous creative inspiration - I have so many ideas - I just have to find time to play with them now! But it was a real delight to come home to hugemongeous cuddles from my two munchkins :)

Anyway on to this weeks Just Add Ink challenge - and it's a fun one. We want you to Just Add Fabric. A few weeks ago I had a wedding card to make for a special crafting friend and so I pulled out some fabric, heart framelits and went to work. 

I got to put an idea I saw presented, by Marelle Taylor at the Sydney SU! regionals last year, into play for this card. Marelle presented a christmas card where she filled the ornament punch shape with fabric then stuffed it with cotton wool. So I took that concept and plumped up my central fabric heart by adding cotton wool stuffing behind it. Next I added a sparkly wedding text heart then the top layer - embossed and distressed honeycomb. The finishing touch was a sentiment banner. It's simple but I hope a little special!

Thanks for visiting, do check out the rest of the DT for fun and fabulous Just Add Fabric ideas!

  1. Such a sweet idea Kim! Love the heart layers and tubby one in the center, a very clever way to add fabric. xxx

  2. This is such a unique and special wedding card, Kim. I love the contrast between the 'formal' look of the shimmery embossed panel, and the sanded card. The puffy heart in the middle is just too cute!

  3. This is such a clever and pretty way of incorporating fabric into your card Kim! Love it!

  4. I love this card so much, and I tried to case it, but had some trouble. I couldn't keep the stuffing adhered to the card and still have the edges be flat. Any advice about adhesive and how you did this? Thanks!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
