Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Ornament #14 The Cardinal

Birds can be so simple, yet so amazing. This is one of the easier ornaments, but looks pretty amazing when there are multiple on the tree. Take a fabric that already has gold thread designes. This one had some large floral motiff. I cut the fabric with the Accuquilt Go and the Cardinal Die. I then stitched the cardinal to another cut out of a cream fabric with some body. I used canvas. I stitched around the edges with gold metallic thread. May your Christmas be shiny and bright!
