Paper is the number one item that I die-cut. That’s no surprise. But my absolute favorite thing to cut? That’s felt!
I love adding felt to paper craft projects because it have the most gorgeous warm fuzzy texture. And unlike fabric, felt does not fray! If your die can die cut paper, then it should also have no problem die-cutting felt. The process is exactly the same. Just layer the die over the felt in the same die-cutting sandwich and run it through your machine.
This card pairs up some lovely Spellbinders dies with felt, stitching and romantic patterned paper for a vintage but fresh, spring look. It all comes together into a central focal point with pretty embellishments providing the sentiment and accent the beautiful medallion motif.
