365 Cards Day 188 "touchy, feely friday"

The challenge at 365 Cards today is to use felt or flocking on your card.

I have some Sassafras Lass Felties that I immediately thought of when I saw the challenge, but, try I as might, I couldn't work it. They are just adorable too, so I am at a loss for my loss of inspiration :(.

I did come up with something though....

I cut out the flower with my Cuttlebug and tied it with a button & twine from my bin of goodies. The striped paper is distressed around the edge using the Tim Holtz paper distresser... fun! And the stamp is one of the many Hampton Arts Studio G clear stamps sets that I got on ebay. They are so cute that I cannot resist them. A bit of machine stitching and a bit of marker stitching et voila!

Have a great long weekend and be safe!


  1. oh i love it!! great colors and love the twine :)

  2. Great card, Chrissy. Love the colours (I'm a big fan of the autumnal colours) and all the delicious textures you've used....distressing, twine, buttons, felt & stitching. Great, great details. :D

  8. Awesome card!! Very cute - great job!

  9. Chrissy - you are much too generous and kind. Thank you for the offer! I have to tell you that I went to buy some twine from the dollar store and when I brought it home it smelt of car oil! I guess I didn't buy crafty twine, I bought industrial twine LOL. Needless to say, I threw it in the garage. I will check out Michaels and if I can't find any there I might have to take you up on your offer :)

    Thanks again!!!!!!
