Paper Dolls Challenge #30

Now that the Paper Dolls Challenges are every two weeks and the links are kept open indefinitely, I have ample time to play along.

Today, I'm participating in Laurie's PPD Challenge. Check out the challenge here. I love that it involves felt. I'm always looking for a reason to use felt on my projects. Laurie's challenge is to use felt with a die.

For my card, I used black felt with the Mat Stack 2 and 5 dies. I decided to use black because of this gorgeous card by Laurie. Isn't it beautiful! It inspired me.

Here's my card. I know it's no where near the caliber of Laurie's card, but I'm okay with it.

My favorite part of this card are the flowers. I used my Sizzix 3-D flower die. It makes two flower sizes. I really love how the flowers turn out. I cut the black felt with the Mat Stack 5 die and then cut out the center with the Mat Stack 2. I stamped an image from the Mat Stack 2 Collection on white cardstock and adhered it to the back of the felt.

Here's a view that shows the felt more.
