So I looked through my scrap box and started sorting out fabrics and trims, etc. One thing led to the next, and ta-da!! What evolved was this artsy card!
I used my sewing machine for part of it and other parts are hand sewn or glued. The materials range from tapestry fabric and fringe, to cotton-poly blends, beads, trims and poly-batting. The card base is 100% cotton linen watercolor paper with deckle edges on which I used fine point ink marker to write a personal message.
I chose quilting cottons in 2 shades of green and cut a simple pattern to glue on the inside flap covering up the exposed stitches.
