Sunshine, Foliage and Little Beasties


As promised, I’m back with some fabric cards. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I can make to put in a card to encourage….a mini care package. In my last post I mentioned watercolor bookmarks with a pack of tea. I think I may elaborate on that and make some fabric bookmarks too. I’ve been looking for ideas and trying to come up with my own patterns. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to show you what I’ve come up with. Meanwhile, here’s todays fabric cards. 

The first one is a bit different from my usual. I hope to improve on it. I’ve embellished it with metallic thread and a saying. Then I’ve attached it to a bought aperture card. It’s a bit more plain than what I usually do, but I still like it. The sentiment reads “You Were Born to Shine”

The next three are my square aperture cards. I made a few different patterns up to try. I’m always conflicted about putting quotes on any of my cards because it limits what they can be used for. 

A sheep in the valley amidst a flower field in the sunshine.  “Shine Brightly”

An owl on a branch “Wise at Heart”

Hearts hanging from a cloud “With love”

I’m going to see what I can come up with for a fabric bookmark. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 



  1. Love these fabric cards Carman, particularly the owl one :) That church in your photo is one I visited last year on a tour of our South Island - it is called 'The Church of the Good Shepherd' and is at Lake Tekapo. here is some information on it https://www.churchofthegoodshepherd.org.nz/
