Hi all! It's been a few months since I got to participate in the monthly blog hop, but I am so glad to join everyone this month. For this round, Nichole challenged us to use our fabulous PTI felt. Here's a few projects I made for this fun challenge ...
First up, a sympathy/thinking of you type card. I have some friends who are going through a challenging time right now so I made this with them in mind. Those of you who follow my blog know I do some quilting here and there, so I decided it would be fun to make a little felt quilt for my card.
To create the quilt, I started with the eyelet die and some chartreuse and raspberry felt. Once I cut a border strip of each, I trimmed them to get little felt doughnuts. (Keep the "holes" ... you'll see why in a minute!) Next up, stack your little doughnuts on a piece of white felt and stitch them down in a tic-tac-toe kind of way. Then trim the white felt with pinking shears and add a background layer of chartreuse. And then you have a clean and simple card with great impact. :-) Honestly, I want to make a bunch more of these little mini doughnut quilts! :-)
Now, I mentioned saving those doughnut holes ... well, let's use them for a flower center! Just stitch them in place and its super cute. Here I stitched the chartreuse holes on a white felt flower and layered it on a paper flower, adding some freehand-cut felt leaves. Super fun, right?!
This is a bitty little card - just under 3.5 x 5 in size but I think that just adds to the cuteness.
Well, that's all I've got for you today. I sure hope you "felt" welcome while here at my blog! :-) Thanks so much for stopping by! :-)
