After I had finished making them (and another project I will be sharing soon!) I had a ton of felt scraps left over, not big enough for another stitching project but still too big to just throw away so I started thinking of how I could use them... I was making some projects from my Tinseltown CD and had lots of digis printed off, some I had enlarged and I thought maybe I could use them as a template to make a soft touch felt card, and here it is!...
Supply List - Tinseltown CD, Felt Scraps, Glitter Markers, Black Fineliner Pen, Repositionable Adhesive, Fabric Glue, Extra Strong Red Tape, Felt Snowflakes, Stickles
Using repositionable adhesive really is a must as the felt moves and stretches around if you try to just hold it together while you cut. You could also draw round if you want to and make sure any pen marks are hidden underneath.Don't try to cut out the really small parts, i.e. the eyes etc... the mittens are the smallest piece I could easily cut!
I then layered the pieces together with fabric glue adding details with a black fineliner pen and glitter markers. The backing paper and greeting are also from the CD - I matted these onto a card blank and then positioned the pieces where I wanted them. Once I decided on my layout I stuck them in place using the really strong red tape - worked a treat! I then added some felt snowflakes and stickles to highlight the snow, trees and snowflakes and make the whole thing sparkle! (I only really glitter at Christmas! lol)Here are a couple of close-ups so you can see what a fab dimensional card it gives you (yet I was still able to get the card into its envelope quite easily!) perfect for someone special :o)
If you'd like to see more Tinseltown peeks and projects you can see them in this post here or on my Facebook page. We also have some more DT inspiration for you today with fab projects from Clare, Melly, Elaine and Claire.
Today I have been hard at work on more product designs and some sketches for an upcoming illustration project, somewhere in the middle I also managed to finish all of my Christmas shopping (all done online this year, much easier!) so proud of myself, this is the earliest I've ever started let alone finished! but I know with all my deadlines in the run up to the festive season that I wouldn't have got it done otherwise, now I just need to get started on making my cards, hmmm.... lol
