Note card from a quick cut stencil – tutorial

After having fun making fast cut stencils (see my video) I made a quilted card from one of the stenciled flower prints.

Using a pinking rotary cutter I cut out the stenciled design to my desired size (I wanted the finished card to fit into an envelope I already had). Next I cut out a piece of felt (this will be the batting) about 1/8″ larger than the stenciled fabric piece. I lightly sprayed the felt front with Sulky KK 2000 Adhesive, then centered and placed the fabric onto the felt. I took this to the quilting machine and free motion quilted where ever the designs sent me.

I used the envelope to determine the size to cut the card stock (fold before cutting) and centered the little “quilt”, then measured and cut the card stock. Next I used artist gel medium, spread on the felt back and placed it onto the card stock. I used hand pressure and rubbed, then left it to dry over night. The next day I had a lovely little gift card. The recipient could just display as is or add a mat and frame.

It was so much fun I know I will be making more!
