FTL 101 using sweet pea felt and paper
... and here's the card I made:
A long time ago, when I was a child (in what feels like a galaxy far, far away!), I remember being in a city at the end of the summer and seeing all the new Autumn fashions being showcased in the shop windows. Pink and brown was the big colour story that year - I had never seen these colours together before and felt very excited about it. This card is dedicated to the little girl I was then.
The central panel is a piece of Whisper White card stock stamped with a Chocolate Chip sentiment and decorated with Sweet Pea felt pieces. I added some faux stitching with a paper piercer and a Pretty in Pink marker. The panel is matted onto a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock, then onto one of my favourite striped papers from the Sweet Pea stack and then adhered to a Chocolate Chip card blank.
Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink (used to sponge edges of card stock)
Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Other: Stitched felt, Sweet Pea designer paper, paper piercer, Pretty in Pink marker
It's worth mentioning that the Sweet Pea designer paper stack (£19.50 for 48 sheets of double sided paper) and the coordinating Stitched Felt (£6.50 for 52 pieces) are from the mini catalogue, and will only be available until the end of September or until stocks last. So if you love it as much as I do, it would be a good idea to get your order in soon... (Click here to order.)
