I have been itching to do some more felting since I got my Janome Embellisher machine out of the cupboard last week........Sooooo.............The CAS-tastic challenge this week allows us to CASE one of the design teams cards.
I have chosen Deb Neerman's lovely bold flower. It is made out of material so this is where I got the idea ( excuse) to use felt. I have decided to stick with kraft as the base card (improvising here - It was a folder in a previous life)
Each petal was felted individually and then handsewn together to create the flower. Finished it of with a button from my precious button tin and a heart pin that I bought from the last SECC craft fair and have been waiting to find a use for.
I considered using one of my MS punches but found some cotton broderie anglaise border which fitted in with the material theme. As you can see, I got the sewing machine out too.
