Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Fabulous felt was our theme for Papertrey Ink's May Blog Hop, so I chose Hawaiian Shores and Vintage Cream felt for my Wedding card. PTI dies include: Mat Stack 1 Die for my center and Beautiful Blooms II small & medium Dies #2 for my corners.

My Sweet Love swirly oval and happy couple sentiment stamped in Hawaiian Shores ink on Mulberry paper showed up best backed with an oval cut from Vintage Cream felt using a Spellbinders' oval die. It's just a tiny bit wider, leaving a slight border at the top & bottom of the stamped image, as seen best in my close-up photo. Love the Hawaiian Shores Mat Stack felt backing, because I had room on the edges for pearls. I simply die cut medium and small flowers in the two colors, stacked & pinched them closed with glue dots, added pearls & mounted them at the corners with more glue dots! LOVE these new dies!!!

Thanks for stopping by tonight and I'm very anxious to see what all you PTI ladies have created for your fabulous felt projects! ;~)


I'm adding this card to PaperPlay's Wedding Celebrations' challenge for this week also.

Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello, I think the greatest thing for making it to the PTI blog hop is that I get to know a lot more crafters.
