Adding texture with fabric


I'm sorry I'm not posting much lately - I have been busy with my craft supplies and do have eight brand new projects to show you... but I can't reveal them until after my Stamp-a-Stack. The rest of the time has been spent packing for this event - as you can imagine, there's quite a lot to do! 

But I did throw together this very quick and easy card the other day. Be ready with your piece of cardstock already punched with a hole and a brad opened up in preparation. Then take a scrap of fabric, fray it around the edges and twist it twice, so that the right side is at the front on both sides. Affix the brad around the centre and squeeze, then push it through the hole – this should be enough to hold the fabric in place. I added a dab of SNAIL behind each side of the "bow" to make it sit nicely - so easy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I love receiving genuine comments - I do get bored of deleting dodgy links though!
