Felt Flower Fusion #7!!!

Hi, everyone!

It's Saturday!!!  And I'm headed out with 7 awesome friends to a wine festival.  We go every year with each other and have such a wonderful time.  I come home each year with my sides hurting because of all of the laughing and carrying on that we do all weekend.  I truly think it's a great form of therapy!

So, I guess it's time to share my card, right???

My PTI release arrived on Saturday (last weekend) and Flower Fusion #7 and a die are all that I've had time to use so far. But, wow was this card ever fun to make!  I just love how it turned out!

See if you agree!

I started out making 4 die cuts of the flowers and folding them in four and hand-sewing the bottom "V" to keep each triangle closed.  Then I started playing and loved how this looked.  It's one flat die cut with 2 of the folded ones standing up back-to-back.  I used some tacky glue and it's together pretty good.  I love how it turned out.

Please click to enlarge to see how beautiful the heat embossing turned out.  I did all the stamping on the Vintage Cream cardstock and then used the Cover-a-Card overtop with VersaMark.  I used clear embossing powder and the shine is just amazing.  I think the leaves on the flower really look awesome with the texture over the ink.

I created this card with 2 challenges in mind......
Card Positioning Systems #232 Sketch Challenge and the Play Date Cafe #96 Color Challenge.

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Flower Fusion #7 stamp set & die
Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card - Flourishes

Ocean Tides felt & ink
Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients cardstock - Mint
