Shopping Our Stash #155: Something Soft

Hello and welcome! It's time for a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week we want you to use something soft on your card or projects. For example: flock, felt, flower soft, satin, fabric, pom poms, etc. Here's the card I made:

 Here is the inside:

I decided to use felt. A lot of it. I used pretty much all the flower dies from Paper Smooches Reflections dies. I even took two of the flowers, cut 5 or 6 of them, then strung them together to make an even bigger flower.


Of course, I forgot to take pictures of the light colored flowers, so the purple blob flower making process will have to suffice. (I was stringing them together while watching Hollywood Game Night and was laughing too hard to remember to take pics!) Once I manipulated how I wanted the petals to lay, I used various yellow brads in the centers of all flowers. I used one leaf die and cut leaves from two colors of green felt. The die cut lattice in the back grounds the flowers. (heh heh, get it?) More die cuts for the sentiment, and finally some stamping on the inside finishes the card. (Plus one more flower!) This card begs to be pet! LOL!
