CCEE1521 Fabric and Corrugated Paper

This week Joanne challenged us to use fabric and corrugated paper on our card /project.  The corrugated paper can be made using a crimper or already be crimped.  The fabric must be something other than ribbon.

Here's mine:



In another life I was a dressmaker.  You will laugh at this:  I have NO fabric.  I found some that I had saved from the wrapping of some apple butter made by a friend, so that dictated a Christmas card.

After sewing for so many years I ruined my hands, and subsequently had to have surgery last year on both thumbs, having bones removed.  Luckily it hasn't hampered my cardmaking!!LOL!

In addition to this cute fabric, I sewed (yes I did) with my daughter's old machine - she has my beloved Bernina - , punched out a holly strip, and added a bow with a snowflake brad.

Please join us HERE, and link your card/project.

  5. I never knew you used to dressmake, Anne? It's something I enjoy, I just wish I had more time for it these days. You certainly had some sweet fabric, and a Christmas card safely tucked away is always a bonus.
