felt is FUN

I was a little bit slow to try this trend
... now I can say


I thought that I would combine the texture of felt with chalkboard and Christmas.

I die cut two panels of DCWV All Chalked Up cardstock using the largest Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 39 die.  I also cut Winnie &Walter "merry" and Paper Smooches "christmas" from it.  Then I took a sponge dauber and inked them as randomly as I could using Brilliance Moonlight White Ink.
I scored the "back" layer of the card 1/2" from the top and adhered it the top layer using Helmar 450 Quick Dry to make it into a fancy shaped top folding card.

Next came the FUN with FELT.  I cut two sets of poinsettia flowers and leaves using the Paper Smooches Poinsettia dies.  I adhered the flowers using Helmar 450 Quick Dry and added some orange bling to the top layer of petals (I put a tiny dollop of Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue underneath them to give them some extra "sticky" to make sure they were secure).

I adhered the poinsettia in place then positioned the sentiment to fit.

Here is a close-up to show the layers and textures of the felt poinsettia.
Pretty cool, right?
