DCM Dare - Fun, Funky Felt



This week's Daring Card Makers' dare is "Fun, Funky Felt!"

I stamped "Thanks" on acetate and sewed it on top of the heart. (Thanks, Gill for the 'stitch it twice so it looks like you're crooked on purpose' tip. ;) Excellent tip! lol) The sentiment at the bottom is computer generated.

There's lots going on in this card which you don't notice first time round. I love the balloon idea and using the trailing threads of the stitching as the balloon string. Then there's the little heart punched in the tag and the background paper and then the acetate and...

Looks so simple, but so carefully thought out. Gorgeous.
