All Eyes On...Fabric

This month we are focusing on fabric! I don't often use fabric, other than ribbon, on my cards. In fact, as of late, I haven't even used much ribbon in my projects. So when trying to come up with a topic to focus on for this month's All Eyes On, I just knew fabric would be a perfect challenge for myself.

I was inspired by this card by the fabulous Angeline Yong. You can also find it in Papercrafts Card Creations Volume 9. I fell in love with the stitched heart and immediately thought of using a strip of burlap to cross-stitch my sentiment onto. The weave is much more loose than your convential cross-stitching fabric, so a little more patience and care is needed get the stitches even. But I think the end result was definitely worth it. I decided to keep this one CAS (see, I haven't abandoned my first love), and added a brad and some twine to create a little hanging banner.

Check out what some of the other girls from the Wplus9 Design Team have up their sleeves for you:


  1. Really pretty and warm card!!

  2. Great CAS card - I love the texture that a bit of fabric brings to a design. And cross stitch is one of my first (and still beloved) crafty passions!

  3. Super sweet, Dawn! LOVE the kraft with pops of red! I've got an entire drawer full of cross-stitching patterns and fabric and floss and needles and whatnot. You've inspired me to dust them off! TFS!

  4. LOVE this! How original to cross-stitch on burlap!
