Hey! It is time for another new A Muse Studio Challenge at their blog.  This time the challenge is to use felt in your creation.  You heard that right--felt.

I don't usually think to use things like felt or fabric on my cards as I take the term 'paper crafter' seriously.  It isn't that I feel uber-loyal to paper; it is just that I don't think outside of my paper box.

Well, check this out! I made a poinsettia out of felt. It isn't nearly as bulky as I thought it would be.  I also finally got around to trying out that crushed silky ribbon that A Muse came out with this year. I like that it is supple so you can easily knot it or tie it in a bow even though it is quite wide. I'm kind of pleased with this card and I'm really thrilled how easy it was to cut the felt with a thin metal die. Expect to see some more felt on my creations some day, especially since I bought the variety pack and have lots of different colors to play with.

I also made another Santa card. This time he is stamped in brown and paired with red since I think brown and red look fab together.  It is a good think I kept an open mind about this set.

The Fine Print: Most products by A Muse Studio--French roast, cherry, sugar, and cherry gingham cardstocks; cherry crushed silky ribbon; poinsettia die set; "Making Spirits Bright" stamp set; and onyx pearls.  Other supplies-Marvy scalloped circle, regular circle and scalloped square punches, Fiskars scalloped hole border punch, and Stampin' Up corner rounder.

Wow - I wouldn't have thought to put red and brown together, but they do look great... love your poinsettia too! Here's to new (fabric) horizons!
