After I have pressed my shapes onto the pieced fabric and cut them out, I then audition which color card stock I will use. You can use a premade blank card, available at craft stores and Walmart, or you can use regular card stock. I happen to have pre cut cardstock which I bought at Hollo's Stationery store in Ohio.
It is really fun to move the shapes around and see what they look like with a different colored background.
Again, following HeatnBond instructions, remove the paper piece on the back of your fabric shape.
Position your shape onto the cardstock.
Be sure to cover your fabric shape with a pressing cloth. Here I am using a synthetic type cloth that is used for applique.
Press with a dry iron according to the HeatnBond instructions.
Now for a finishing touch, I take my Perma Pen and draw little dash marks to resemble stitching.
Your fabric card is now ready.
Here are a couple of fabric cards I have made.
And a sampling of the Christmas cards I sent last year. I made over 40 cards that were mailed all across the US and also Australia.
I hope this has been as much fun for you as it has been for me. I'd love to hear any comments you may have.
