Sympathy Cards for Card Swap

I am in a card swap with a bunch of ladies from my MOMS club. 
I finally finished them all, all 18 of them!!

 We all signed up for the type of card we were going to make.  I chose sympathy.  I knew I wanted to make these cards that I saw during Celebrating Mom on Made.  I found some soothing fabric but wanted to add some text to the front. Then I saw a tutorial on How About Orange for transferring images from paper to fabric using gel medium.  I had some gel medium and a laser printer so I decided to try it, and It was very easy!

After all the word patches were cut out I sewed them on top.  There were a lot of steps to these cards, but I spread it out over a few days so it didn't feel like work, it was fun.  I can't wait to see what the other ladies make!! I'll be sure to post some pics!!

Those are lovely, and I'm sure the person who receives them are going to feel so touched by the personal card. I just signed up to follow you. I'm a new blogger, and I'd love if you'd stop by and maybe return the favor. Take care!
