Real and Faux Felt

Real and Faux Felt

The little girl next door is having a birthday soon, and I thought she might enjoy a card with the cute bunny from the Forest Friends Occasions Mini set. The sketch I used is Jen del Muro’s current SFYTT. The faux felt technique was used on the Close to Cocoa background panel. What you do is run a piece of card stock through the paper crimper a few times at different angles until you are able to separate the two layers. The “inside” feels like felt, just as soft as the felt ribbon I used on the card.

The bunny was cut out and popped up with dimensionals. I added a few clouds in the background by sponging Bashful Blue ink off the edge of a scalloped circle onto the Whisper White card stock. The flower button got a little faux thread with the help of a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by!
