Playing With Fabric

I was at my mom's house the other day and she was cutting out squares to make a quilt. I noticed all of the beautiful patterns she had and ask to have some scraps of some of the fabric. Here are two cards I made so far using some scraps. It was easy to work with the fabric. I simply cut out a piece of white or vanilla card stock the size I wanted to use on the card and added some adhesive from my ATG tape dispenser. Then I mounted the fabric onto the card stock and trimmed with my rotary paper cutter. I dusted off my sewing machine and added some stitching around the border of each. Here are pictures of both cards:
