Cmas Card Challenge - February - Textiles
I selected a green card and added a rich red diamond patterned paper for the background. I cut 2 scalloped borders with a (Die-namics die) thin die from gold textured paper which I placed straight sides together and glued about 2/3 down from the top. I cut a piece of white felt about 1/2" wide and glued that over the join of the gold pieces. I recycled flocked ribbon (see below) left over from a Christmas Wreath project years ago. I cut the poinsettia from this material with a small Marianne Design Creatables thin die. I cut another from green card stock same as the card. I selected a large gold sequin with a gold mini brad for the center. This accent was attached to the card with the gold brad.
What textile will you select for your card? Here's a few ideas. Textiles - Ribbon (silk, satin, gross grain, seam binding, organza), fabric, cording, felt, yarn, fiber, lace, silk flowers.
