Wouldn’t it be amazing if trees where that colorful all year round?
This birthday card was made with Lara’s (who blog at BuzzinBumble) new and amazing method called Crafted Appliqué. There is a magnificent tree pattern in her book, made from fabric and sewn unto fabric. Which is what the book is about: a new method to make fabric appliqués. But I quickly realised that this method would also work wonderfully for sewing fabric unto paper. So I decided to experiment.
I traced the tree pattern on tracing paper, exactly as it was in the book, without increasing the size. It was just perfect for a pre-cut and store-bought cardboard card. I cut all the necessary pieces and place them on the cardboard. Then I sew everything into place with my sewing machine.
This is how the card looked like inside. Do not worry, I covered all the threads with a beautiful sheet of paper.
This project took so little time that I made two.
