Birthday Banner Card with Upholstery!

Birthday Banner Card with Upholstery!

A few months ago I went to one of my favorite new stores, Scrap, and bought all the cool fabric I could stuff in a grocery bag for $2.  I love swirls and when I saw a swatch of different colored velvety upholstery fabric with swirls in it, I had to buy it for card-making!  This was my first attempt at using fabric in my card.

I adhered the upholstery sample to my card and then attached three banners that I had cut with my Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I attached the cut paper banners to chipboard that was already laser cut to the same size chipboard cut outs (they come with the CTMH Cricut cartridge!) and added some glitter gel to the paper.  I wrote my birthday sentiment with a silver pen and anchored the banners with a wire strand of seed beads ($1.50 for a spool from Scrap) and purple brads.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
