thank you

SORRY! This project has been removed for publication.
Look for it in the June 2012 issue of CARDS magazine.


Happy Labor Day! Just a fun card to share with you today, using supplies I am totally in love with right now. Kaiser Craft Miss Nelly’s line, felt, denim, and Edgeabilities from Spellbinders.

The fun part about this card is the two borders. The top border was created with Spellbinders Edgeabilities and 100% wool felt. Wool felt is available at your local fabric store and it cuts like a dream. Look at the detail I was able to get in one pass! It was a combination of E8-001 Classic Scallop Edgeabilities (cut edge( and E8-003 Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities (decorative insert).

The border underneath was made from denim. It was a piece that came in a Bo Bunny package of trims. (It was cut in half to fit a card better.) I was trying to think of way to create a pleated border that would be easier. After staring at my supplies for a while, I though, I wonder if my Xyron machine would work? So, I ran the fabric all the way through and started pleating. It was simple and effective. Its been well over a week and the border is still holding on!

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend! We are catching up on some house projects and rest here. thanks for stopping by!
