|How to make a beautiful greetings card card with fabric|
A dark blue card has three cartoon cats cut from material. The cats are mounted on a red glitter mesh background with foam pads. They hang from rods made from cocktail sticks. The card background is stamped with tiny paw prints. Small gold stars and glitter glue details are added. A gold outline completes the design.
Stamp a border of paw prints around the front of the dark blue greetings card with the rubber stamp Cat Paw PSX A696 using a VersaMark ink pad. The clear ink gives a watermark effect several shades darker than the blue card.
Cut a piece of glitter mesh about 120 mm (4¾ in) square. Mount this on the front of the card with Sticky Dots adhesive.
Take a piece of fabric with the cat design and cut out the general area you are going to use. Take the double-sided self adhesive sheet and peel the top backing paper to about the area of the cat material. Mount the cat material on the adhesive surface, face up. Cut around the cat designs.
Punch small holes in the cat's paws and slide the cocktail sticks in place using the illustration as a guide.
Mount the cats on the glitter mesh with self-adhesive mini foam pads.
Add small gold stars and pick out parts of the cat design with glitter glue using the illustration as a guide. The glitter glue has been used on the stripes and dots of the cartoon cats.
Draw a gold line around the outline of the card.
