I made this adorable card 

after watching this video by HRR Julie Ebersole...she is genius I say!! 

 The A Muse|Studio Holiday Catalog introduced a whole rainbow of felt. I love this felt so much and there are so many great projects you can make with it.......and it is perfect for these beautiful flowers in Julie's video. I wanted to make sunflowers, so I used buttercup and french roast felt. I used a short strip of the french roast felt and cut an equal amount off the buttercup felt so it was still 12 inches long. The sticky tape held the 2 colors tight together. I started rolling from the french roast end so it would be the center of the flower. I loved the big one so much I wasn't content with one, and decided I needed another one, but just a little I cut the felt strip 1 1/2 inches wide and then proceeded with the directions as before. When I snipped the felt, I made the snips closer together. To make the card I used a french roast card base, 4 bar size, and stamped the cross stitch border stamp from the Mad For Plaids set in buttercup ink in two places on the card. I then inked the leaf from the Graphic Sunflower set in buttercup and made the leaves for the sunflower. I stamped the word Hello from the Graphic Sunflower set at the bottom of one of the flower stems in buttercup ink. I then affixed the flowers to the card using Glue Dots. Hope you will try making one of these flowers for your next'll get hooked on them I'm sure!!!!
