Wednesday Card featuring Felt

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
How is your week going?  Anything crafty going on?  Me not too much.  I have been able to get a bit in but nothing too big.  Hopefully this Friday at my crop and then on the weekend! fingers crossed!

My card today features the Jillibean Soup Dutch mustard line.  I spritzed the paper with my Mister Huey Pumpkin spice and then arranged the card.  Now my fun thing on this card was the new 100% Wool Felt that I ordered from Paper Trey Ink.  I am totally addicted to the felt!  It is so beautiful, thick, and the colors are to die for--well back on track now-anyway Jillibean makes the cutest embellishments using felt; however, they are a tad expensive because you only get like 4 in a package.  I am VERY frugal with my scrapping funds and it is just a bit high for me.  So I got to thinking that I could create my own with my Paper Trey Ink dies.  I was a bit worried because the felt is so thick.  Well as you can see it worked out!  I love them!!! I layered the flowers and added a button in the center.  I am in love with my homemade embellishments!


Supplies
paper- jillibean soup
cardstock-bazzill
sentiment- jillibean soup
felt, buttons, twine- paper trey ink

Here is a closer look at the flowers I made.  I made three sets.  The largest flower is apporximately 2 inches and the smaller is approximately 1.5 inches. 



I have put these three sets of felt layered flower embellishments in my Etsy shop.  I have them priced WELL below what you can buy them for in the scrap store.  If you are interested please email me.  There is also a link to my etsy shop on the right side of my blog. 

I hope everyone has a great day today.  I will be back on Friday with a new project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow, you did an awesome job with it! And the flowers are great! Sorry to ask, it may be a stupid question but did you run the felt through a machine or does felt work with a punch?

Super cute! I've got to give that a try!

I love the felt! I see why Becky was inspired to try it! I used felt once, years ago, to make a banner with my dies, and totally forgot until just now! I should try this again! I'm thinking some holiday decorations are in order!
