Die Cutting for Paper Crafters Blog Hop!

Welcome to Paper Crafts Die Cutting for Paper Crafters blog hop. Today, we are focusing on applying die cut other than paper. I've choose "FELT" to work with, as I discover different types of felt that selling at the market. There are two types of felt in particular I've used to create below card and ornament for matching gift.

For the "JOY" sentiment, I've used the most ordinary felt that you can find any crafts shop.
Here is another die cut ornament I've create to go along with the gift. This felt is called "Stiffened Felt", as you can see the ornament's felt are much thicker compare to the Joy above and it is highly recommended for making decoration items.
I hope you enjoy today post and blog hop. Thanks for stopping by! Please continue to visit following links in order to find out what other designers have come out with besides using "FELT". Also, to increase chances in winning a copy of the Die Cutting for Paper Crafters Magazine.
In addition, by leaving a comment on this post, you will get a chance to win a copy of the magazine. All comments must be posted until Tuesday, November 20th and I will pick a winner to receive a copy of the magazine.

Beautiful! I love the felt look, in both the JOY and the ornament... Can you ship the "envelope" like that?

PamSpradlin said...

Your ornament is so dainty...I can't believe it was cut by a die cut machine. At first your Joy looked like it was cut out of velour, it has such a shine to it. Your card is fabulous.

Since I'm relatively new to these kinds of crafts I've been amazed at what can be done. There are so many uses for everything so I will never waste anything and that will make my husband happy. I love everything but get into trouble for spending beyond our means but now I'm learning to USE EVERYTHING!! LOL. Thank you for MORE ideas :)

I love the way you used both of your felt elements. I don't use felt often, but I need to. I have big plans for some holiday tags this year using felt. I would love to know what dies you used for your items, especially that gorgeous ornament, love the two tone and white just makes every other color pop.
