Let's create a fabric postcard for Christmas!!!

Today I will share with you this tutorial, this was the project that I presented
as a guest post on the blog "Creare per r'ESISTERE". I decided to upload this
project in case there is anyone in this virtual world that has not seen it and
want to create Christmas cards with fabric. We begin here and hope you like it!
Hoy voy a compartir con ustedes este tutorial, este fué el proyecto que yo 
presenté como guest post  en el blog "Creare per r'ESISTERE".  Decidi subir este
proyecto en mi blog por las dudas que haya alguien en este mundo virtual que no
lo haya visto y quiera crear cartas de navidad con tela. Aqui comenzamos y
espero que les guste!
1) Buy a set of blank cards and envelopes
1) Comprar un paquete de tarjetas blancas con sus sobres
 2) I cut a piece of fabric that was smaller than the size of the card.
2) Cortar un pedazo de tela  más pequeña que el tamaño original de la tarjeta.

3) I decided to add on the back of the fabric, a piece of fusible interfacing to
 give more body to the fabric, but that is up to you.
3) Decidí  pegar en la parte de atrás de  la  tela, un pedazo de fusible 
interfacing  para darle más cuerpo a la tela, pero eso depende  de ustedes .
4) Using fabric scraps I cut a few triangles and attach them to the fabric 
with pins, then take them to the sewing machine.
4) Usando restos de  tela de tipo fieltro que tenia, corte unos triángulos y los 
sujete a la tela con alfileres, para luego llevarlos a la máquina de coser

5) Then I decided to add a piece of burlap in the back to give a more rustic 
5) Luego decidí agregar un pedazo de jute en la parte de atrás, para darle un 
estilo más rústico.

6) Now comes the most beautiful, decorate with what you have on hand,
buttons,  beads, ribbons....the sky is the limit!

6) Ahora viene la parte más linda, decorar con lo que tengamos a nuestro
alcance,  perlas, alabatorios, botones...dejen volar su imaginacion!

7) The last thing is to glue our creation to the card, I used a hot glue gun.

7) Lo último es pegar nuestra creación a la tarjeta, yo use una pistola de cola  caliente.

Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and I hope also that I have provided some 
inspiration to you!

Ojala les haya gustado este tutorial y yo espero haberles  brindado un poco de 
 inspiración y  ganas de crear unas tarjetas para decorar en su casa o para 
regalar a la familia y amigos!
