Felt Challenge

Hello!

Happy Labor Day- for those of you in the US!  I was able to get some quality time in my craft room this long weekend, so I will have lots of projects to share with you in the coming week! One of the challenges I was looking forward to playing with is Cath's Fabulous Felt Challenge at the Moxie Fab World.  I have two cards that I created for this challenge.

There is a distinct chill in the air which is a sure sign that summer is giving way to fall. One of my favorite fall activities is picking apples at one of the many local orchards we have near our house, so with that in mind, I came up with the following card:


I die cut and pieced together three apples from pink and yellow felt, brown felt, and green felt.  Once I assembled the apples I added a single cross stitch.  I stamped the sentiment, adhered the apples and created the rest of the card.

For my second card, I stuck with pink and tried to make something super sweet.


I cut 2 long thin pieces of felt and rolled them together to make a lollypop. For added stability, I glued the felt roll to a 1.5" circle with white glue. I cut the lolly stick from kraft cardstock and tied a tiny tag to the faux stick.  A button in the center of the lollypop finished of this sweet confection.

Here's a close up of the lollypop.


The rest of the card features some cutie Doodlebug paper from the stash, yellow cardstock with a decorative border, some polka dot ribbon, and a button with twine.
 
Hope this challenge inspires you to get warm and fuzzy with some fabulous felt very soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Katie
