1. Cut a scrap of fabric with zig zag scissors and spray with color washes, blue/green and gold glitter. Heat set to dry.
2. Spray with clear sealant let dry. Check the size of the cloth against the nestability size. Trim if necessary.
3. Treat the cloth surface with the Perfect Crafting Pouch and stamp tree image with versamark and emboss with white powder. Mask the inner front of the tree, alternating sides and stamp branches again and emboss with white powder to make tree appear fuller.
3. Thread needle with double strand of gold thread to make a total of 4 strands. Sew the "gold garland" onto the fabric, end in the back and secure with double sided sticky tape.
4. Cut and emboss the nestability, adhere the fabric to the front with super sticky double sided tape.
5. Cut Jack frost paper 9" x 4.5", fold in half to create a folding card, ink the cardfront edges. Adhere the tree w/ nestability to the card front. Glue rhinestones and star charm into place, use Embellie Gellie for ease and placement.

beautiful Card...love the tip about reapplying the tree to make it fuller! Wondering why you applied sealant to the fabric after spraying the mists and drying them...??? Love your tips! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Beautiful card. Love how you did it.ReplyDelete
I applied the sealant to the fabric so it would be less porous and the image would stamp and emboss clearer w/o messing up the inked background. Sometimes, I use the perfect printing pouch for stamping on fabric but I didn't want the residue to get within the fibers of the fabric. Cheers!ReplyDelete
