MIM #66: felt flowers from border dies

I taught a card class last night and stayed up past my bedtime, so today will be more show and less tell :)

Vine border, become flower:

 Nichole had posted a tutorial on her blog, and this isn't my first time trying it out.

I used my new script alpha dies and some pretty patterned paper peeking through from underneath (and, right after creating this card, I lost the "L" die, searched like a crazy-person last night with no success, only to find it this morning... yay!)

The autumn rose mat was stamped with florals from "rosie posie" and "larger than life" in fresh snow ink.

The rolled flower was accented with some mft leaf dies and some kraft/white twine.

Thanks for peeking!

  5. I'm trying to figure out how you did the sentiment, Eleana? Did you run the cardstock through four times, once for each letter?
    This is beautiful!
