Have you seen the gorgeous felt flowers that Betsy Veldman made? Check it out on her blog here. She is so talented! I tried making the felt flowers and they turned out soooo cute!
Before Betsy's post came out, I'd seen several other posts that had these beautiful paper flowers on them. Turns out the flowers were made using a new Sizzix 3-D flower die. I loved them so much I ordered one from Stampingscrapping. It arrived on Friday. Of course, as soon as I saw Betsy's post, I had to give my new die a try using PTI's wonderful felt.
Here's a quick card I put together just to showcase the felt flower.
Isn't the flower gorgeous! I melt every time I look at it. The die makes two different size flowers. This is the smaller flower. It's cut so that you don't need to sew the bottom. I just used a glue dot to secure the bud. The leaves were cut with the Delightful Dahlia leaf die.
Of course, I had to finish the inside.
The swirly image is from Faux Ribbon. The tiny flower is from Out on a Limb.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for more cards using this flower die. I still have the large flower to use on a card.
