Felt Flower

Good Morning Everyone,
Hope you are all ok, I'm having a few slightly worrying health issues at the moment which are affecting my mojo a bit so I have been looking for a few challenges to take my mind off those and well....challenge myself lol

I made this card for the CAS Mix Up Challenge where you have to use Felt, Cork or Canvas

My card uses Felt, Die-cutting and stamping.

I had loads of problems trying to get a decent photo of this card partly because of the tiny piece of vellum I used behind the flower, it is foiled and the foiling was reflecting so much that laid down was the best position for the card in the end I think.

The vellum is a snippet I found in my bit box which dates back to when I first started card making and bought a kit from Create and Craft which I think was Hunkydory. I die cut it with one of my Ebay stitched squares, my felt flower is cut using a Die'sire die and I have cut 3 flowers and layered them up then added a large cream pearl. It needed something else so I tucked in some little leaf stems that have been on my desk for ages.
Sentiment is from Clearly Besotted set 'A Little Sentimental'

That's all for now,
Hugs Kaz xxx

Pretty layered felt flower Kaz!! Perfect additions with the pearl center and green leaves. The foiling design on the vellum is so beautiful, but I agree, photographing anything shiny is a challenge.

Hope you are feeling better soon. Take care. And thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us at CAS Mix Up!

Oh Kaz .. .. I am so sorry to read that you have some health issues at the moment. I hope they get to the bottom of things for you and things aren't as you might be imagining.

Loving your card. That vellum is gorgeous .. .. I bet it is even more stunning if seen "in the flesh".

Great felt flower too.

Take care.

Love Jules xx
