I've had this felt for the longest time, but for some reason, I was afraid to cut into it. Somehow I felt like I would ruin it or something. It's not like they were never going to make any more--sheesh. Anyway, today I decided to get over my reluctance to use it. And here's what I came up with.
I started with a piece of white stock which I embossed and then rounded the upper right corner. I cut the black polka dot frame (using two different sized Classic Circles dies from Spellbinders nested together) and adhered it to the embossed piece. The sentiment was stamped on a leftover label, and I added a few leaves and flowers stamped in black and colored in. It was popped up on dimensionals.
The felt flowers and leaves were cut using a die from PaperTrey. It cut smoothly and easily and I loved the final result. I added buttons tied with floss to the centers and adhered them to the card using Score-Tape. Then the card front was mounted to a black base.
I don't know why I waited so long to cut into this felt, but I know I won't wait so long to try it again!
Are you hoarding products you're reluctant to tear into? Go ahead and use them. They'll make more, I promise.
