TC-Floral Birthday Flowers

This is a birthday card for a friend and fellow crafter, it now resides in a frame on her dining room wall.  I use fabric off cuts and recycle fabrics from clothing, curtains etc. The pieces are cut from differing fabrics and to add texture and detail I also used recycled buttons, beads and sequins.  All pieces are glued to the base fabric, the stitched in black cotton thread to add outline detail.  With this card I have stitched the fabric to a 6x6 kraft card to avoid the base fabric fraying.  Im just getting started with machine stitched art and this is not intended to look perfect I was going for a shabby chic looo. I use Dovecraft Ultimate Glue as it lets me be precise, dries quickly, dries clear and it’s my favourite.

Fabulous card. Really love the machine stitching and the shabby chic look, that you have achieved. Pleased to know that your friend framed it, definitely not a throwaway card; more a piece of art. X
