Hi everyone! :)
I'm so excited to share this fun technique with you all...
I created this card based on a sweater I found on line that I LOVE! I just love to find new techniques to try from different venues other than the scrapbooking industry.
I also LOVE to use fabric with paper for a great texture to add dimension.
Here are a couple of close up shots to show details.
This is the sweater I found, that inspired this fun technique to try.
Here are the steps to creating this look for yourself.
First I took fabric and cut strips about a half inch thick and then used a fabric glue to make a tube.
You want to let it dry before arranging it on your project. I let mine dry over night.
In the meantime, I picked the papers I wanted to use for my card to go with the fabric. Once the tubes were dry and ready, I used adhesive to place the fabric down in the design I wanted.
Once I had the tube placements down, I started hand stitching it into place to mimic the design on the sweater. I didn't want perfect stitches, so I used my hole piercing tool to make holes more random before stitching.
Products used to create this card are from January's Cabin Fever kit...
I hope this card and inspiration draw some creative ideas to try. I look forward to seeing this technique duplicated. It takes a little time with the stitching and drying, but I do love the results!
Tip: If you are using fabric, be sure to use a fabric glue.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
