Hello everyone, this is Yana Smakula sharing another cardmaking video tutorial.
Do you know that you can use your thin, etched dies, to die cut not just paper or cardstock? I always love to try out new mediums to cut and one of my all time favorites is felt. You can always die cut beautiful shapes out of felt and it works especially beautiful for flowers and leaves. Another great medium to try to die cut with your Spellbinders dies is canvas, I have a video tutorial featuring canvas HERE.
Before we jump to our today’s project I’d like to point out that not all types of felt die cut equally well. Some inexpensive types do not cut well, or even don’t cut at all. So if you’d like to die cut felt for your projects I suggest getting not the cheapest one.
I used beautiful peach felt to die cut flowers and leaves for a wedding card I created for my cousin’s wedding. My project also features a one of a kind stamped background and in order to make it I used an embossing folder. You can not only emboss, but also stamp with folders especially if you like a slightly messy look.
Instead of embossing a piece of watercolor paper, I simply stamped on it with the help of Blistered embossing folder. I used Faber-Castell Gelatos to apply color to the folder, but other coloring mediums can also be used (ink pads, watercolor crayons etc).
