New Ideas on Using Your Test Samples on your Cards:
Many of you should recognize this Appliqué Fan
Design & the Redwork Carnation. The designs are stitched on fabric and
placed inside a Trifold card.

The second idea is the cream colored card on the right (as shown in picture below). This has an opening on the side so you can slide your design inside and glue the side closed. You can find these pocket panel cards at your local craft stores.
The third idea on the left (as shown in picture below) is starting with a plain piece of card stock. I took one of the white oval mats, glued the design to the back of the mat, placed this on top of the Front of the Cardstock and then used my fancy scalloped cutter along the edge. Now before I placed glue on any of the layers, I was placing each layer on top of the other so that it would look nice around the edges.
The card stock was purchased from the local Michael's craft shop in a package of 40 blank folding cards (with envelopes) sized at 6.5 by 5 inches folded for under $10. The store also has a Value pack of 25 envelopes and 25 folding cards--5 1/2 x 4inch cards for $6. Both packages state "Heavy card stock".
All these designs can be found on my website for sale.
*Take note so far I did not stitch on any of the cards: Quick way to make a card & Pretty Too!
The last idea (as shown in picture below) is starting with a plain piece of card stock. I stitched my granddaughters's favorite patch. I put one on her T-shirt and put the second one on this cardstock. I did embroider the words "Happy Birthday" before I glued on the patch and then used my fancy scalloped cutter along the edge. This one was using the embroidery machine. You can glue on appliqués and patches and little bows, etc--whatever you can find to make an unusual card.
Hope this sparks your interest in making more cards and cleaning out all your test samples!!
