OCC Fabulous Fabric

This week at Our Creative Corner, our hostess Kristin Tierney (LilyBeth Boutique) has a fantastic challenge for everyone!

We all know how versatile fabric is, yet it rarely makes an appearance in papercrafting (with the exception of ribbon). For this week's challenge, Kristin suggests using fabric:
~as a background
~stamped
~folded
~cut
~woven

You can also make an embellishment (such as a fabric flower), or anything else your crafty minds can come up with!

For my card this week, I layered fabric it behind a die-cut image. I first cut the owl from kraft, then used the same adorable floral fabric I used for this card a few weeks ago. I also had a really fun green fabric that I put behind the leaves. To adhere them to the card, I temporarily taped the fabric onto the back, then stitched around the image with my sewing machine.

I raised the whole front panel with foam tape (as well as the sentiment) for extra dimension, and wrapped some embroidery floss around the bottom.



Here's a closer shot of the leaves:


I hope you play along with us this week at Our Creative Corner!

PS. Today I will be attending PAX East in Boston!! (and yes, I will be in costume....)
