Thank you to Ashley Greer, our guest poster who created darling birthday and Valentine's Day cards using FlexiFuse and fabric! Here's what she shared about her creative experience:
Hey guys! Ashley here. Lately, I've kind of been obsessed with making cute cards! My new favorite medium is fabric. I like that it gives me the patterns I want without having to hand draw the entire image, but gives a softer texture than using scrapbook paper. Also, using FlexiFuse takes the mess off my hands.
Every time I use paper and glue it ends up every where. I'm not being dramatic... serious talk here. I am worse than my seven year old. Glue all over my hands, sprinkled with paper shards and of course, my favorite, glitter. EVERY. TIME. It's the main reason I gave up scrap-booking as a hobby. The cleanup was longer than the creative process. Definitely wasn't worth it.
But check out this CUTE birthday card!!
I just whipped up a quick cupcake design, printed out my templates and got to it. All I had to do was trace my templates on FlexiFuse, adhere that to fabric, cut it out and iron it onto my card stock paper. EASY. PEASY. Best part, I was not covered in glue or tiny fabric confetti. It was so easy, I did it TWICE. Check out my last minute Valentine's card!
I "love" that the letters look like the gold balloons that I have been seeing all over my social media. I made it in under an hour and I think it turned out really cute!! Same process as the birthday card...I just whipped out a design and got to it! I think next on my list will be a congratulations card for my cousin's wedding...now THAT could get really fun and I think maybe could use a few more embellishments! Thanks for reading...
