Just wondering how to adhere the fabric to the card. Someone suggested placing the fabric on "sticker" paper before fussy cutting out the embellishment. Then adhere using regular adhesives. Any thoughts?

I put the fabric on 2X tape and fussy cut, or run thru my Sizzix with parchment paper between material and die.

It depends on how much I'm using. Mostly it's only a small strip like ribbon, lace or hessian, so double-sided tape or glue dots are plenty. I have used furniture fabric swatches before, but they were so stiff already that I just used double sided tape around the edges.

I've also die-cut fabric to make flowers. I just stick those on in layers with glue dots in the centres. They look really good.

Here I used fabric on an ATC.

I run fabric through my Xyron. Also you could sew it on.
