Always Amazing with Felted Lacy Poppies

Always Amazing Card by Diana Nguyen

Hello there!  Diana here with a soft card for a friend who would love a reminder of what you think of her.  You can make her day by telling her she is always amazing!  The flowers are made of felt so it even feels nice!  I went with different shades of pink but it would look great in other colors. Check to see what you have in your craft room!  Read on to see how I made this card.

 

  1.  The card base is 5″ x 7″; fold a 10″ x 7″ rectangle in half.
  2. Cut a sheet of pink cardstock down to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″.
  3. Cut a sheet of white cardstock down to 4 5/8″ x 6 5/8″.
  4. I glued a roughly circular piece of pink felt and a strip of green onto a piece of typing paper.  I did the same with a piece of darker pink felt so that when the Lacy Poppy die was cut on it, the transition between the green and pink would be as shown below.  I found that adhering the felt onto typing paper helped it to get a cleaner cut (crisper edges) as well as making it easier to adhere to the card later.
  5. Die cut the words Always and Amazing out of light pink cardstock and dark pink cardstock.  Glue them together slightly offset so that the lighter pink shows up just a bit for a shadow effect.
  6. Die the second largest beaded circle in the Beaded Circle Frames and add Glitter Dots stickers to the beads.
  7. Adhere all the die cuts to the front of the matted card.

    You are always so creative with your techniques. So much goes in to your CAS cards to make them just perfectly balanced.

    The felt combined with the striated feature of the poppies die remind me of yarn art. Very pretty.
