Christmas card

We love Cath Kidston fabrics for interiors,  but we wanted to make some Christmas cards with it too.  You can join our workshop at the Cath Kidston London Picadilly store, or if you can’t make that here’s our handy How-To.

You will need:

  •  Cath Kidston fabric
  • Fusible facing
  • Sharp scissors
  • Double sided tape
  • Blank cards (white and Kraft
  • Fine black ink pen
  • Extra card embellishments 

Step One

Iron the fusible facing onto the back of the fabric. Make sure you put the shinier side on the fabric and protect your iron and ironing board with baking paper. This is to to stop you fusing the facing to your ironing board or melting the facing on to your iron! When you're done, let the fabric cool


Step Two

Draw your design on the back of the fabric, and cut it out with your sharp scissors 


Step Three

Use the double-sided tape to stick your fabric elements down.  Add details with your pen and embellishments


Step Four

Pop it in an envelope and post!
