WHEW! I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
Tonight I wanted to use my Meet Emma & Wyatt set (was there a question?) and with MUCH back-seat cardmaking from Emma, created this little ditty.
You might notice the little felt flower on the bottom, and I wanted to show you how I made it using the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics Die and our new GORGEOUS Wool/Rayon felt!
I ran my felt through my Hello Kitty Big Shot using the normal stack for thin dies.
Once it was cut, I made a slant cut of the scallops so that as I rolled my flower, the smaller part would be the flower inside, and the higher parts would be the outside petals.
Next, I started rolling the felt, and positioning it into petals.
As I got to the end, I tucked the outside piece inside.
Once I had it rolled, I plopped the bottom down onto a glue dot (thanks Jo!) so that it would all stick together.
Here’s a close up of my finished felt flower! I added a Summer Glittered Garnish for the center. I love how fun and easy it was to create and see a LOT of these in my future!
A WORD ON DIE-NAMICS:
When the Die-namics we have on hand sell out, we will start a PRE-ORDER. The remainder of your order will ship immediately, and your Die-namics will ship as soon as we get them in stock, which should be between 7-10 days max. We are working closely with our manufacturer to make sure those Die-namics are in your hands as quickly as humanly possible!
Now, next up on this amazing Hop is the uber talented Julie Dinn! I can’t wait to see what she’s got up her sleeve…. Make sure to leave a comment at every stop, you never know who has hidden candy!
