Easy Fabric Embellished Greeting Cards Tutorial

Easy Fabric Embellished Greeting Cards Tutorial

I love to have versatile greeting cards on hand -- it's easy to grab a card for any occasion, and I can save a trip to the store and save money, too.

And let's be honest -- sometimes you just need an easy win! When a larger project seems daunting, or if you just have 15 minutes to spare, this is a great quick project.

1. Find Fabric Scraps with Interesting Motifs

I love using fabrics with medium scale prints, in shapes that I can easily fussy cut. Alternatively, use solids or small scale textures and imagine what shapes you can create.

2. Iron On Fusible Web

Cut a piece of fusible web (I like Pellon Wonder Under) that's a bit larger than your motif. Iron the fusible web to the wrong side of the fabric, with the web side touching the fabric and the paper side facing up. 

3. Cut Out Motif & Fuse to Card

Cut out your fabric motif and peel off the paper from the web. Position the motif on the greeting card, and press with your iron to fuse it to the paper. I usually stick to the cotton setting on my iron, and it only takes a few seconds.

4. Optional: Embellish with Machine Stitching

Use your sewing machine and a straight stitch or zig zag stitch to add an extra embellishment to the card. I like to increase my stitch length, and use an old needle for this step.
