Fabric Greeting Cards

I had been thinking about making these fabric greeting cards for a while now and a couple of weeks ago found some of these cards in my local craft store. The cards are made for 4×6 photos. You just slip the photos in. The image shows through the die cut opening on the front of the card,  and the inside of the card is nicely finished and the back of the photo is covered with the quality card stock.

So I bought some 4×6 index cards, cut some scraps of Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics to 4×6 inches and used a glue stick to affix the fabric to the cards. Then I trimmed the cards about 1/8 inch all the way around in an effort to make them slip more easily into the cards.

And in just a few minutes, I had some really gorgeous blank greeting cards that will be perfect for gifts during the holidays.

The first cards I bought were around $15 for 10 cards. I found some on Amazon for about $20 for 40 cards. I made 40 cards in a matter of minutes!  The cards and envelopes are really nice quality. I’ve already bought another box of 20 to make some more cards for gifts.

These are all so pretty! Click on each photo for a more detailed view.

Once they were done, I sorted them into sets of four cards and packaged them with envelopes in a cellophane packet. They look really high-end and they’re really pretty and cheerful. These large print KFC fabrics really work well for this project.

  1. They really are beautiful! I wanted to learn to make cards from card stock, i.e., print a message, fold the stock, add a photo. This is fun, too.

  2. Now you’ve given me another great idea for cards as gifts. I live in a senior community and these are perfect as birthday gifts (pkg. of 4). I won’t even have to leave my apt. to make these. Perfect for quarantine time adventures! Thank you so much for the tutorial!

    1. So glad you like the idea. I made quite a few before the holidays and it’s really nice to have some on hand. I just sent one to a friend last week. Have fun with this project!
