The Cuttlebug Spot - Oh So Soft: Felt

It is Tuesday and that means it is time for another The Cuttlbug Spot Challenge.  This week the challenge is to use felt on your project.  This was a difficult challenge for me it is my last for The Cuttlebug Spot, as this is the end of my term.  Nilda has also decided to take a short break on the challenges, but she plans to be back soon with more.  As for me I can't wait.  On to my project.

I started with an idea I had about a week ago to emboss my own felt and it worked, kind of.  I started by spraying the felt with starch and then running it through and if gave this great deep embossing to the felt.  I was so excited, then as I was putting my card together I noticed that the more I handled the felt the embossing was coming out.  I will work on this technique and if I get it right I will share with you.  Being as I was disappointed with my first sample I made another.

Here is the first card.
Here is a close up of the embossing.
Now for my next card.
I hope you stop by The Cuttlebug Spot and give this challenge a try and don't forget to check out the rest of the design teams projects I am sure you will not be disappointed.  Thank you for stopping by.

I am submitting card # 1 into the sketch this week for Card Positioning Systems.

  1. Both cards are beautiful, Brenda! Love the idea of embossing the felt. Wonder if you ued hair spray afterwards or something it would stay more embossed. The spray starch was a great idea and I'm surprised it didn't hold. Anywasy, I thoroughly enjoyed being teamies with you on the Cuttlebug Spot. xxD

  2. Brenda what a great idea, I would never have thought of embossing felt and thanks for a beautiful card. Thanks for being such a great team mate xx

  7. These are both gorgeous Brenda - love the idea of embossing felt...maybe if you were to dampen it before you embossed it, it might 'hold' better?
