The first is an all-occasion card.
I started by embossing a piece of olive felt using Eileen's Starlight Embossing Folder and then adhered it to a kraft card.
I used the small 4 petal die from Eileen's Stitchy Flowers and Leaf set to cut about a dozen flowers out of violet felt. I die cut Eileen's Basket from kraft cardboard...
...and then used the Basket Weave Embossing Folder to add texture. I inked the basket die cut with Nutmeg and then added it to the front of the card.
I used the roof die from Eileen's House/Pocket set to cut a little detail piece that I added in the upper left corner of the card.
I sewed tiny gold beads into the center of the flowers and then added them to the front of the card. The sentiment was hand stamped and adhered with dimensional foam.
I actually created the front of the next card with violet felt!
One of the dies in the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf set is a stamen. I realized it would make a wonderful dandelion by layering at least 2 die cuts from white felt.
This flower is very delicate so I used the Precision Base Plate. Once it was cut, I peeled away the outside and then carefully released the felt from the plate with a straight pin.
To create the card base I cut a piece of kraft cardstock 5.5" tall and 5.75" wide. I scored it at 1.5" and then used the leafy embossing folder from the Stitched with Love set on the small flap I created. I highlighted the design with Nutmeg ink.
I used Eileen's Starlight Embossing Folder on the violet felt before I glued the dandelion in place and attached it to the front of the card with double-sided SuperTape.
I used Eileen's Leaf ink to paint the embossed leaves and inked the edges.
A hand stamped sentiment finished it off - super easy!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
