Mixed Media Cards

I love these! Could it be because I got to play with my stash of fabric and vintage buttons?

Layers include fabric, printed paper, tissue paper from an old pattern and cheese cloth. Cut small, medium and large flowers and circles (I used Sizzix dies – Flower Layers and Circles #2 – but cutting shapes free hand would work just as well.) then stack with the largest on the bottom and smallest on the top. Add a bit of cheese cloth at the bottom and between one of the layers. Sew a button in the center to hold the stack together and soak with spray starch. Pinch and scrunch to shape the flower, then let dry overnight.

Center a 2′ Glubers on the embossed background (Cuttlebug’s Textile folder). Add bits of ribbon, yarn, lace and beads around the edge of the Gluber. Then press the flower into the center.

Easy and fun!
