'Pfaff Smart 350p Embellisher

About the Pfaff Smart 350p Embellisher
The Embellisher is not a sewing machine - it is a "punching machine". Instead of using thread, it works with several specially shaped needles to create the most unbelievable effects. All you need are scraps of fabric, yarn, wool, felt, denim, silk – each material results in a different effect. Just lay two or more materials on top of one another and you’re ready to go. The needles of the Embellisher mesh the fibers of the fabrics together. The results are whimsical details and dramatic surfaces. Its pure creative fun and an unlimited source of inspiration that will suit both designers and all those with creative minds. Beautiful: Make felted graphic motifs, especially on wool fabrics or lay woven patterned fabric on a background fabric and “stitch” over it and let yourself be surprised!Pick up on the latest trend: Embellishments or worn effects on denim – they’re easy to do with smart 350p.

Here is my wild creature for the DCM Dare. Both the Elephant and sentiment are from Elusive Images. I coloured the elephant with watercolour pencils and sakura pens. Can you see a bit of a theme here - mmm elephants, orange...OMG I'm just too predictable.

We'd like you to use Christmassy words on your card, not just in the sentiment but for this challenge the word/s should form the main focus of your card - like in Rhi's "In a Word" dare of a couple of weeks ago"

Okay, so on going back and reading the challenge again "I want you to design a post card - and whats more I want you to actually post it! Aren't I mean ?" , I realise that this is probably not what was asked for! However, hearing the word postcard got me all excited as I have a few very old embroidered postcards. I think this one is from WW1 and came from my DH's family, I've been looking for a reason to use them on a card for ages and this just seemed like too good a chance.
