Floral Heart Birthday Card

I have been die cutting for a few years now but I have never tried cutting anything other than card. I thought I would experiment with felt.

An A4 landscape card matt and layered with purple card and white embossed card. The white card is embossed using a Xcut embossing folder. I used a Tattered Lace die set for the bigger flowers and a Cheery Lynn die for the smaller flowers. I embellished the flowers with buttons and the smaller flowers with flat backed pearls. I cut a template from two Sizzix heart dies to stick the flowers to. A sentiment is die cut with a Sizzix heart die and placed behind the floral heart.

The sentiment is die cut and layered with a Sizzix flower nesting die. This is embellished with flat back pearls.
