Give your cards a softer side by adding textiles as trims.  Using fabric on your cards adds a whole different dimension.  Anyone who loves textiles will fall in love with cloth creations - whether you are the giver or the receiver of the card!

Tuesday card

I used the Flower Fold Bigz XL Die in the Big Shot to cut these flowers from fabric.  You may cut eight layers of cotton with many of the Big Shot Dies.  This particular Die has a score line, so I was only able to cut four flowers at a time to avoid cutting fabric where the score line is positioned.  I'm still experimenting and learning as I go with this new art form.


I wanted a Shabby Chic look, so after adhering the center of each flower to the card with a small dab of Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive, I used the point of the Piercing Tool to rough up the edges by pulling threads out.
