For these cards, I cut a piece of cardstock the size I wanted the card to be (based upon the size of the motif), then cut the fabric about 1/2" larger, wrapped it around the cardstock and used glue stick to hold it. Then I cut a piece of quilt batting just a bit smaller than the motif, centered the motif on the fabric-covered card (adhered with temporary basting spray), then I machine stitched around the motif with monofilament (invisible) thread (through the cardstock). I used to glue the motifs down, but decided I would like to have the recipient be able to remove it to use for something else if they want to. Then I use glue or double-backed tape to affix this to the actual card front. That way, the back is all hidden. I find it is easiest to print the inside greeting on regular printer paper then cut it to the size I want and use double-backed tape to adhere it to the inside of the card...rather than try to feed the card through the printer, which of course I would need to remember to do before mounting the motif onto the card front. (TMI?)
