making Christmas cards

When I was shopping groceries today I found such nice paper-napkins with whimsical angles.
The temptation was too big, I couldn't let them in the shop.
When I came home I searched for some fabric with writing on it and some music-papers.
The whimsical angels and a few stars, a bit very thin fabric pieces with gold. Much glue-water and here it lies overnight to dry.
Just in time to make a few nice Christmas cards of it :)
If you like to give it a try too, HERE is a link to the workshop I made a while ago for the CQ mag online.

This is lovely fabric paper, Ati. I've looked at it for a long time and felt inspired to try something similar. Making fabric paper is one of my favorite things to do. So making it Christmassy would be great fun! The angels are adorable. Your blog is always a joy to peruse! ~~~ suzanne

Dear Ati
Ooh how exciting, you know I love paper, fabric and glue too!
So, once I've finished all the aprons I'm going to try some cards too - your whimsical angels are perfect for Christmas.

Thank you for the link to your tutorial which is great.
So you can use this for wrapping gifts too??

I went on to the CQMag beginners section and have saved it in my favourites to return to, I always love your CQ pieces that you make for your friends and swaps etc.

Thank you Ati for this inspirational post and just in time for Christmas!

Jeg måtte se to ganger på bildet, første gang jeg så det trodde jeg skulles bakes. Kjempefine blir de, mye finere enn sånne kjedelige kjøpejulekort. :)

Jeg håper du får en super helg.

Hi Ati, I love it when you make this paper fabric! I saved and printed your link months ago! In fact, a lot of the ladies who attended the CQI Retreat in September had wanted to do this technique, but it would have taken too long from beginning to end. I plan to try it myself over the winter sometime. Sorry to hear about your extreme cold weather - we are having the same freezing weather in the Salt Lake Valley of Utah. Coldest November that I can ever recall! Take care, dear one, and stay warm. Hugs, Cathy

This piece of fabric is fantastic and you have given me some ideas for next years Christmas cards. I've also visited your tutorial for CQ - so no excuses now.
