Our November 2019 meeting was something a little different. Local craftswoman Cathy Powling came to tutor us in making these charming cards. Cathy brought along many examples of her cards and showed the range of her imagination for many occasions.
Cathy’s preferred medium is paper, so she shared the techniques involved whilst our discussions contemplated the possibilities using fabric, Lutrador, Pelmet Vilene or similar products to make the base. We also thought that fabric might be used for pattern, and other stitching & media ideas could be used for the pop-up elements.
With Christmas just a few weeks away it was the starting point for most of our cards and featured above are just some of our efforts. It was a productive afternoon as we enjoyed ourselves, learnt a new technique and went home with a finished product, but knowing how to do it better next time.
