Fabrid Daisy Delight Card Making Craft
Materials Needed to Make this Card:
- Brown Cardstock (A)
- Light Pink Cardstock (B & D)
- Off White Cardstock (C)
- Chipboard with flower punched out (E)
- Chipboard Flower Center
- Mini Brad
- Fabric – pink floral print
- Off white craft paint
- Brown ink
- Pink and purple ink (or other colors that compliment your fabric)
- Craft Knife
- 3-d Sticky Foam
- Mini Bee Clear Stamp Set
- HAND CRAFTED Card Making Template
To Make This Card:
- Prepare paper pieces as instructed in the HAND CRAFTED Card Making Template
- Using the Mini Bee Clear Stamp Set, stamp flowers in pink ink onto C. Stamp two images before re-inking the stamp (this is called second generation stamping). Do the same with the flower centers in purple ink. Continue following the HAND CRAFTED Card Making Template.
- Paint the chipboard flower outline and the flower center with off white craft paint and ink the edges. Put a little ink on your finger or on a sponge and rub it lightly over the dry surface. Cut a piece of fabric about 5” x 3”, and using craft glue, secure the fabric to the back of the chipboard design. Pucker the long edges to make them fit on the square. Do not worry if some of the fabric sticks over the edge as it will be trimmed after the glue has dried. To be sure this dries flat, place the fabric surface on waxed paper and place a weight on the top. Allow it to sit long enough for the glue to set but not dry, and peel the flower off the waxed paper. Allow to completely dry before putting on your card or scrapbooking page.
- Cut a strip of cloth 1” wide by 15” long. With a craft knife and cutting mat, make a slit ¾” long on either side of C starting 1” from the bottom of the card and cutting upwards.
- Insert fabric end into the left slit from the top side of the card, and bring it back up to the surface through the slit on the right. Re insert the fabric strip again into the slit on the left coming up on the right. Adjust the ends so they will fold in behind the front of the card. With the craft knife make a slit wide enough for the cloth to slip through without puckering along the spine of the card. Insert the fabric and secure inside the card with glue.
- Attach the dry chipboard flower with 3-d sticky foam. Punch a hole in the center of the flower and the chipboard flower center with an eyelet punch. Secure into place with a brad. Add a sentiment or thought inside your card or leave it blank for a finished project!
