I was recently going through some fabric cuts that I have on hand, and I was wondering if any of you have ever made cards with cut out fabric shapes I have lots of cute fabrics that I originally got to cut out various designs and appliqued them onto denim vests, and I need to find another use for the fabric I have on hand. Thanks!

One of my recent card making books that I just rec'd had a section on making cards using fabric. I'll have to see which one it is and let you know - right now its bed time but will look tomorrow.

I use fabric on cards the same way I use paper.
Fabric die cuts and appliques are great accents on cards and add texture. You could even make a patchwork quilt, 3D flowers, and more. These sites might help get you started.

Just type 'using fabric on cards' in a search and all kinds of ideas will come up.
