Fabric Tape Tutorial by Sarah Martina

Hello Tape Fans! We have a special treat for you today! The very talented Sarah Martina Parker has created a fabulous card tutorial for you with our Fabric Tapes!

Hey y’all! Sarah here, and I’m ready to get our hands dirty and try out this project using some of the finest fabric tape on the market by the one and only Love My Tapes! Let’s get right to it, shall we?
      Here are your materials:
  • ·         A2 size card in cream card stock
  • ·         4.25 x 5.5” piece of cream felt
  • ·         Love My Tapes fabric tape
  • ·         Label #9 Die shape
  • ·         Cream Felt
  • ·         Twine
  • ·         CSS Sentiment Stamp
  • ·         Fluid chalk ink
  • ·         Decorative flower and ribbon
This is the card that we will be making today. I have always loved window cards, so this fabric tape is just perfect for providing an interesting background to your window.
      Trim the top and bottom edges of your felt piece using a scalloped rotary trimmer.
      Use label-shaped die cut in center of piece of felt
      Use the cut out shape of your felt to determine where you will need to place your decorative tape. Use a pencil or pen to mark down the size of the die cut shape to help you estimate.
      Lay down 4-6 strips of decorative tape, one on top of the other, creating a super elegant and fun background. Be sure to remain in the area you marked off in Step 3.
      Stamp sentiment onto felt using fluid chalk ink below the label-shaped cut out.
       Adhere stamped felt piece to card base using foam adhesive. This creates the “window” on the front of your card, featuring the lovely fabric tape.
      Add flower, twine, ribbon & pearl embellishments to spruce up the card design just a tad.
