Can you tell I love fabric?

Yes, that is fabric on my tree. I did the same thing you would do with paper piecing but used fabric instead. I stamped my tree on the fabric and cut it out and then to secure it to my card stock I stitched along my stamped line....what neat texture it brings to my tree!
This is a close shot so you can see that it is stitched on. I cut out my branches and just laid them over top to give it even more dimension.

Here are all the deets on this fun card.....Wishing that spring/summer would come SOON!

I've been thinking about using some fabric I found in a card. Your card is all the inspiration I need! Thanks!

Ooohh!! I just love your card, especially all of the dimension it has. The coloring of the tree trunk is amazing, and I can't wait to give stamping on fabric a try. What a great look!
