Fabric Note Cards with Text - Great Gift Idea
These are similar to the fabric note cards I made last summer, but this time I was a bit more systematic and used the same three fabrics to make a whole matched set. To vary things a bit, though, I used some recycled cards from our wedding in the same color tone and also added some text using some of the super soft transfer paper I bought to make Hubby's belt and the fireman logos for the kids' pajamas.
I made a set for my mom as well as another set for my mother-in-law and aunt. When I printed the other heat transfer projects I was working on, I filled up the empty spaces of the transfer paper with odds and ends phrases to add to some fabric note cards. I mostly used phrases like "Just Because..." and "I love you!" Some of the cards I left without text, so they could be used for more occassions. You do want to make sure you print your design in REVERSE on the transfer paper.
There are some of my favorites. I like the dimension that the text adds. Even though I was using the same fabrics, each card is unique and has a slightly different feel to it. The possibility for cards is really endless.
