Fabric Butterflies

I designed this card for my downline get together a few months ago. It's the first time i designed a card using fabric. Wasn't to excited about the fabric line when SU first introduced it but of course i had to get some and try it out!! After seeing some amazing cards demoed at Vancouver Regionals on Saturday I'll for sure be purchasing more SU fabric in the near future!! They also announced that the fabric from the holiday mini (which is still available now - 121716 Deck the halls and 121715 Candy Cane Christmas) will carry over to the new Idea Book & Catalogue in July...along with MORE new patterns!! wooooohooo! way tooooo exciting!!

I was so impressed with the way the fabric turned out on my butterfly card i decided to CASE myself and apply the same design to an address book. I gave these adorable address books to a few good stampin buddies this past January at Leadership in Nashville. I stamped their names on the side...--- is that corny..? : )

I applied the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the fabric before i ran it through the Big Shot. I peeled the backing off the bigger butterfly but left the backing on the smaller one and used tombo glue in the middle to hold the butterfly down. Applying the multipurpose adhesive sheet to the back of the smaller one will insure the fabric doesn't fray. Hope you like... : )
