Just Because (it's Holiday Monday)



Happy Victoria Day Monday to all my Canadian friends...this is my take on PTI's Make it (Holiday) Monday!  LOL  I love holiday Mondays because it usually means I have time to watch the MIM video first thing in the morning with coffee in my PJs.  It's the little things, right?  Today we are asked to make felt flowers.  I literally said, "ouch," each time Lizzi squeezed those darling little petals with hot glue so I'm thinking she hadsa cooler hot glue gun than mine.  I went for some spray adhesive instead :)  I wanted a card that was fairly flat so I just layered the flowers like I do when using paper.  These dies cut the felt like butter without any adjustments to my Big Shot. I did, however, use a metal shim for the melon berry layer on the biggest bloom just to make sure it cut all the way through.  Thanks for stopping by!

I have never tried felt pieces on a card....they do look lovely! Would you share the name of the die for the large flower, please?

Maureen, I love your version of felt flowers, awesome idea!! Much safer than using the glue gun too!

So pretty! Hope you've enjoyed your day off! So fun to get a day to just create!

Beautiful and Grand Botanicals goes to the top of my wish list! I don't own a glue gun due to previous "ouch" experiences so will be creating a flat floral too.

Such a lovely card Maureen! Your flat flowers are so pretty and look great against your print background! Had to laugh at your "ouch" comment...yes, I did say that a few times while gluing mine!
