DSC00851 I participated in the Craft Sanity postcard swap.  Our theme was Spring and we made a Spring theme  fabric postcard for a partner.  Elizabeth was my partner for this swap.  This is her first swap she has participated in.  I am sure, as the rest of us know, this will be the first of many. 

Both of the fabrics are thrift finds and I love the background strawberry fabric.  To make fabric postcards you place a thick interfacing between layers of fabric and bond it.  It is best to use fusible on both sides of the interfacing. 

If you are going to add any embroidery or sew anything to the front, do so before you fuse on the back.  Also, keep in mind the colors of the threads you are going to use.  If I had used a red thread to sew on the buttons for the flower centers I would have had to place another piece of fabric on the backside as it would show through.

I found some new alphabet stamps over the weekend at Papyrus and used them to stamp Happy Spring onto the fabric.  I finished it with green thread for the border to bring out the green stems on the strawberries a bit more. 

I hope Elizabeth likes it.  It went in the mail to her on Monday.
