FOR ALWAYS CARD WITH FABRIC.

Hi all! What a beautiful day it was today... here in central Oregon! Got up to 60 degrees and now I have Spring fever! 

Just wanted to do a quick post of a card I made last week using some of our For Always paper and coordinating fabric.  I used lagoon and honey cardstock for the punches of color (they come with the For Always paper packet).

SEE THE CUTE LITTLE CURTAINS? I USED CLOSE TO MY HEART COORDINATED FABRIC!  OH SO CUTE.  I MADE THE PART OVER THE CURTAINS LOOK LIKE A CURTAIN "HEADER" USING CARD STOCK AND A STRIP OF THE FOR ALWAYS POLKA DOT PAPER. 
Here's a closeup of the little window and curtains. I got the idea for this card from a photo on page 101 of the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book. It used cardstock for the curtains that was accordian-folded.


I STITCHED ACROSS THE DARK PAPER WITH MY SEWING MACHINE TO GIVE IT A LITTLE TEXTURE, AND ADDED SOME LITTLE DOTS OF CARD STOCK THAT I CRUMPLED UP AND SANDED THE EDGES.
I didn't even gather the little curtains, just cut a piece for each side about 2 inches and folded in half and creased it.. then tied with ribbon to give it a gathered look.

That's it!  short but sweet....

I have more fabric projects coming this week! 

HAPPY CRAFTING.
