WT103 "Material Girl" challenge, to use fabric on a card.
Kites were made by sewing 4 pieces of fabric together. A cardstock diamond was cut for each kite, and was laid over the center of the 4-patch block (quilting term) aligning the points of the diamond on the seams, and the excess fabric was cut away so that the fabric was about 1/4 inch larger all around the cardboard diamond. ("Quarter inch seam allowance", in sewing terms.) Fabric was folded around behind the cardstock diamonds and glued in place on the back. I used a Clover mini iron to aid in folding and making the glue hold faster.
If you don't sew, you could make kites out of patterned paper, but they won't be magically puffy.
Kite tails were made from quilting thread (which is a bit heavier than standard sewing thread) and bits of 4mm silk ribbon.
I used the cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder for the background, since the swirls reminded me of the wind. You need wind to fly kites!
