Felt Flowers Never Wilt

I love it when you get to hand someone their birthday card.  Since it doesn't have to be hidden away, and fit all nice and tidy into an envelope, the embellishments can be big and dimensional.  My husband's grandma's birthday was the perfect opportunity for me to create a card that went BIG with a pretty, felt embellishment. I got to use my long neglected Heirloom Rose Die-Namic from My Favorite Things with some of their quality wool felt.  To be sure I got it right, I watched the MFT Youtube video that helps show how to assemble it correctly.   Felt is really rewarding to work with. Here's a close up look...

The leaves were cut from cardstock using Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die, the patterned paper is from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment and other Naturals White and Rose Red card stock are from Stampin' Up!.  

She really loved it (almost as I loved making it for her).  Today is her birthday, so I thought it's a great day to share it with you.
Happy crafting, everyone!


  1. Very pretty card and I LOVE that felt flower. Now I'm off to raid DD#1's fabric supply to see if I can find some!
