Christmassy bird

This is the card we made at the fabric class on Saturday. Yes, it’s a variation of this card but I wanted to make it Christmassy with lovely reds and greens (still my favourite festive combination).

I began by sticking the fabric to some Designer Series Paper backing card using the Big Shot adhesive sheets (which are brilliant by the way). Note that I caught a piece of stray thread underneath mine and it shows up through the fabric.  So don't do that with yours. The bird was die-cut in the Big Shot.

To ruffle the fabric, you simply lay a line of adhesive (Sticky Strip or a piece of the Big Shot adhesive sheets) along the bottom of the cardstock and roughly pleat the fabric while sticking it down. Another strip of tape over the top ensures it won’t move.

The rosette is made using Crochet Trim ribbon, with a running stitch through it, pulled up and sewn together, with the button stitched in the centre. Well it was only a “nearly” no-sew class!
