Fabric Cards for a door prize...

I am linking up to the wonderful MAKE IT MONDAY blog.
Go over and check it out for yourself, it is one of my faves!

My quote for today is:

(Compliments of Hobby Lobby!)


Hello, dear friends and family. I know it has been almost 2 months since my last post. I have created a few cards, but not nearly as many as you might expect. I suppose that summer obligations got the better of my time...

The cards I am sharing with you today is a set made for someone to be used as a door prize for a fund-raising event. Making these cards was a challenge because I was given fabric to work with. Each card is different because a set comprised of a variety was required.

Also, I recently returned from Vegas. My next post will show those photos. Yes, I went to Vegas and visited Hobby Lobby! Found some great stuff there, too! Their prices aren't better than JoAnn's or AC Moore, and unfortunately....I had no coupon!!! But they did carry manufacturers I have not seen in the East Coast craft stores.

The only thing this "set" has in common is the fact that each of them has a piece of fabric incorporated into the design. The set includes (1) Birthday/male, (2)Thinking of you, (3) Thank you, (4) birthday/female, (5) sympathy and (6) get well. I started off with a masculine birthday....

1. Birthday Male

Supplies: Cardstock: The Paper Company, Template: Spellbinders, Ties and background cut from fabric, Tools: pinking shears, Ink: Stampin' Up, embelishments: brads & hanger from Michael's

2. Thinking of you/ Blank inside for your note

Supplies: Cardstock: The Paper Company, and DCWV Template: Spellbinders & Cuttlebug embossing folders, fabric design on left, Ink: Stampin' Up & black gel pen, embelishments: brads from Michael's

3. Thank you
