The Monday Challenge this week is to use felt on a project. I have just bought some wonderful felt both from Simon Says Stamp and from Papertrey Ink. What a difference quality makes. The felt I had previously was barely acceptable for my Grade 4 Popsicle stick project and here I was still trying to use it several decades later.
In fact, I had tried to use this exact die with the cheap see through felt and it had gone all Mission Impossible on me and self destructed. Not this time though. Although I am not crazy about the background paper, it was the best of several I tried from plain white and woodgrain, to polka dotted.
I keep re-discovering some stamp sets that had found their way to the bottom of the stamp pile due to their finicky ways. With the Misti though, I can now manage finicky stamps and make them work. Such is true of the sentiment stamp on this card. With the Misti I managed to emboss the ribbon, stamp three different sentiments after bending them to the shape of the ribbon and finally die cut them out.
