Love Notes V-Day Card


I decided to enter this one in Sugar Nellie's Sugar Bowl contest! How did I not know about this blog sooner?!?

I just don't have that many Valentine's Day embellishments, so I decided to make my own. I have tons of wool felt, in gorgeous colors, some of which I dyed myself, so I wanted to use some of it. The little scalloped circle on the bottom right of this card is what I came up with. I simply stamped a heart image onto a pink piece of felt, cut it out and did a little running stitch around it. I sewed on a tiny little button, then glued the heart to a scalloped circle. Yes, you can cut wool felt with your Nestabilities! Came out beautifully! I did some French knots in pink embroidery floss all around, added some frosted Stickles to the heart, and voila! A cute wool embellishment!


Hope it inspires!
