10 things i have made – 7 – alphabet cards

Cardmaking is one of my first loves.  It was the first craft i threw myself into.  My hobby took over the dining room and we would be forced to eat in the loungeroom until i bought a craft desk to call my own and set my supplies up in a little nook.  i haven’t bought a card since then and that was 15 years ago.  i may have spent a lot of money on papercrafting supplies but think of all the money i have saved not buying cards!!!! (the above card is 5 white daisies and available at rockmelon recycled on etsy).

Been working to complete my range of alphabet cards using recycled, remnants and vintage fabrics.  I now have a range for every letter except G, Q, U and W. Here are a few of my favourite letters.

    Love the buttons and the recycling- the cards are beautiful. I have been using stitching on some cards recently too (paper not fabric) but am not sure what to do on the inside of the card – do you leave the stitching showing or insert another piece of paper to hide the stitching? Lynda

      Hi Lynda, the stitching on the reverse is a bit ugly to my eye so i paste an insert over the inside of that portion of the card. Good luck, it’s lots of fun! rochelle

    Love the alphabet cards…..great idea using fabric remnants.
    Cards can be so expensive to buy, its nice to be able to make them yourself and really personalise them.
