A Flowery Felt Fing

The current Artist Trading Card challenge set by Leonie is called Fibres & Fings.


I cut a flower shape from a piece of turquoise felt, using a Sizzix Sidekick machine & a daisy die. I stitched the flower to a piece of brown felt using brown cotton thread. The centre piece of the flower was stitched on to an brown button & attached using silicone glue.

Tip: When cutting through felt, pass the die & felt through the machine twice.

I took a mountboard base & edged it with a Krylon 18ct gold leafing pen. I stitched the brown felt on to the base using metallic gold thread.

To finish, I used a strip of brown felt as the flower stalk & added a circle of turquoise felt as an accent to the top.

Please note: No paper, ink or ribbon was harmed in the making of this ATC!
