I was looking through some fabric stash I have left over from a wedding card box I had made, and found a piece of lovely white moire fabric. I thought it might be fun to try stamping on it. So I "inked" up this tulip stamp (Hero Arts) with Marvy markers, huffed on it, and stamped it onto the moire. I was pleasantly surprised when it stamped quite well on the fabric, without running or feathering!
Next, I adhered this fabric stamped piece to cardstock with a sheet of wide double sided tape, then I cut out the oval shape with my Spellbinder's oval die in my Cuttlebug.
To gather the ribbon, I ran tape around the back of the stamped piece, and carefully placed the ribbon along the tape, gathering it as I fed it along the oval.
To give the piece more stability, I cut another oval the same size, and adhered it to the back, over the ribbon, using my tape runner.
After layering my card, I added my tulip piece with foam tape. I made the bow with my Bow-Easy.
As an afterthought, after the picture was already taken for the blog, I added some pearl accents.
I entered this card in the Card Patterns challenge blog here . This is the sketch:
I love the way the pattern of the moire shows through the stamped tulip. It gives it a really different look. You can see it better if you click on the picture of the card.
Well, that's it for tonight. Hope you got to enjoy a little peek at the sun today! I saw in the forecast that it will be 68 degrees on Monday!! Can it be spring is really here? Fingers crossed!
