Cheers! Going to a dinner party and are taking a bottle of wine to the hostess, this card is the perfect companion. A few months ago I saw a tutorial for a felted card, and wanted to really give it a try.
Felted cards are made with napkins, plastic wrap, newsprint and an iron. Our Creative Corner has a challenge to try a new technique, so it was time to give this technique a try. The background is a napkin, that is ironed on to cardstock. There is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers with all the detail and also a video. A cocktail napkin was used, found that one napkin could make 4 cards that our 5x5, this particular napkin would be great invitations for a dinner party. I have found myself in the party section of the stores to see if there are any unusual napkins that can be used as backgrounds.
Did not want to add a lot of embellishment to the card, but did add some stitching to the yellow strip to meet the a challenge at Crafty Creations. Love the colors on this card which just happens to be a challenge at Gingersnap Creations, to use 3 colors that you love. My favorite color is red, but I also love autumn colors and with this color scheme this was possible.
The base of the card is yellow, gold is the mat and also the oval, and the final color is the brown tones. The sentiment was computer generated, the ovals were made using my cutting system from Creative Memories.
This has been a good craftying day for me, the creative juices have been flowing, more challenges met, they will be posted in the very near future. Have a great day.
