I love the look and feel of embossed fabric. Here's how I did it in a few simple steps: 

Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

8-816C Walnut Cream 


ES-016 Cabbage Roses 
S5-191 Decorative Labels Twenty Eight 
S5-127 Labels Twenty Eight 

 Other Materials Used: 

Prima patterned paper 
Calico fabric 
Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade 
Darkroom Door Simple Sayings stamp 

 Step 1 

 Apply a thin layer of PVA glue to a scrap of cardstock that's slightly larger than what you need. I used the edge of a plastic credit card to ensure the entire piece was covered. 

 Step 2 

Place the fabric onto the glue and smooth it out. Use a brayer if you have one to ensure all of the fabric is stuck down. 

 Step 3 

Give the glue a few minutes to completely dry, and then emboss the fabric and cardstock. 

 Step 4 

Apply colour to the embossing using various colours of Distress Ink and a sponge. Adhere the piece to the front of a card and finish it off with a stamped sentiment on a couple of die cuts.
