A "FELT" Challenge

Sometimes it is nice to use other textures with our dies for cardmaking.  Felt is a great idea and it seems to cut like butter.  I love using.  Over at A Muse Studio Challenge Blog that is just what we used for this weeks challenge. 
For my creation for this challenge I decided to do a wedding card.  I love the felt flowers for wedding cards.  I also chose the colors of Onyx (black) and Vanilla (cream) for my card.  They just seem so elegant for weddings and you can't go wrong with the color choice. 
Here is the card I did:

I used Onyx and Vanilla Cardstocks with an accent of the Sage Petite Polka Dots.  The felt is Vanilla.  The ink is Versafine Onyx Black.  The ribbon is the 5/8" Satin in Onyx.  I used the Elegent Elements and Essential Seniments Stamp Sets. Last, I used the Classic Scalloped Circle Nestabilities and the Flower Die Set 2. I also rounded the corner on the card and the matte on the card.  It is a very simple and quick card. 

I hope you enjoy the card and hop on over to the challenge blog and enter to win a nice A Muse gift.

A litte RED, WHITE and BLUE

That is the challenge over at A Muse Studio Challenge Blog.  I decided to do a birthday card for this challenge.  Since the colors are red, white and blue it can be used for a man or woman.  It is such a simple card to make.  It would be great to make these as sets in different colors to give as gifts.

I used Navy cardstock for the base of my card.  I then used Sugar cardstock to do  my stamping.  I stamped the swirls from the Elegant Elements stamp set with Navy ink.  I layered a Star cut from the Star Trio Die Set out of Cherry petite polka dots.  I stamped the Birthday Wishes from the Wild Rose stamp set with Momemto Tuxedo Black ink.  I layered a small strip of Cherry polka dot pindot under the saying and added three of the sugar buttons.  What a fast and simple card.  I sure hope you enjoy it!

Have a Blessed Day!!!!
