Make Your Own Embellishments

This week we are sponsoring the CRAFT challenge blog - where the theme is "Make Your Own Embellishments".


For this card I made my own felt embellishments using the new Spellbinders Fall Foliage dies.

These dies cut through felt so easily!

Firstly I embossed my card base with the Creative Expressions Brick embossing folder and blended some ink around the edges to highlight the embossing.

Then I layered up some green and burgundy cardstock onto my card base.

I stamped my frame and sentiment from the Just Rite Fancy Labels stamp set

and die cut the frame with the coordinating Spellbinders Labels Thirteen dies

Using the Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms dies I cut three twigs.

Once I mounted my frame I arranged the die cut foliage and twigs around it and decorated with some pins from my stash.

I used the Creative Expressions Dark Bronze pearl pva glue for the faux pearls around the edges.

Hope you like it!
