Fabric TLC

Happy Monday! I'm so proud of this card ~ Lynn set our TLC (technique lover's challenge) over on SCS which was to use fabric on our cards. My mum and sister are superb quilters and had me hooked there for a while ... during that time I became a 'fabric addict' (my sister is still suffering from this disease!). So today was a treat as I fished out all my scraps of fabulous quilting fabric! These scraps are by MODA (Seven Sisters). I think SU should make DP just like these!

I ironed freezer paper onto the reverse side of the fabric to stabilise it, and ran it through the Big Shot. I promised not to use the Flower Folds Die again ... but how could I not???? Tee Hee. I also used a butterfly from the Butterfly Die "Beautiful Butterflies". Here are a couple of close-ups.

I used SU buttons on the flower centres and sticky-backed half pears on the butterfly. The cork is from Home Depot, it's also sticky-backed and goes through the Big Shot beautifully.

Stamps : En Francais BG Stamp
Cardstock : Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana
Ink : Pretty in Pink, Creamy Caramel (to distress the edges)
Accessories : Big Shot, Flower Folds and Beautiful Butterflies Dies, Sherbert Buttons, Linen Thread, Cork, 1/2 Pearls

Love them! And yes, I'd love DS that "matches" those pretty patterns

Can you share more info on Ironing freezer paper to fabric? I guess I'll go search SCS and see what I come up with...
