I wanted to make a batch of cards for the local shop where i sell a few bits and pieces.
I start by cutting a block of fusible webbing and then iron on scraps of any fabrics that i feel like using.
I would love to tell you that i plan all these out and have a good method of execution... but alas, i sort of wing it all! i have a vague idea / style in my head that i feel like making but mostly i like to see what happens.
I cut out lots of shapes from the fabric scraps - making sure the shapes will fit on a standard card.
I put the cards and the fabric scraps all together at the same time - rtaher than making 'one card at a time' as it were. Then run them through the sewing machine to give them a scrappy look.
I have pages of pre-printed sentiments, just from my PC...
then try and fit a sentiment to a scene. It seems to work itself out OK.
And, if i feel it needs it, i will pop a wee button on the finished card.
And then, when the cards are dry, i finish the back with the branding.
Pop them in a plastic card wallet with an envelope inside.
20 or so cards, ready for sale, made in an hour or two.
Easy rainy day project - why not make a batch for yourself? and then you have a stash of perfect cards for any occasion and people will think you are properly clever :)
