FELT FLOWER USING SIZZIX BIGZ CHRISTMAS SPIRAL GARLAND DIE
I made this card a while ago for a friend's birthday, and as you know when I make cards to give I take the less is more approach so this card has a lot of white space!!
I printed the happy birthday strip which I made in my graphics programme straight onto a 6x6" white card and added a pink felt flower cut using the Sizzix Bigz Spiral Garland die. This is a Christmas decoration die that I purchased last year especially for making these flowers!! For the card I probably used about half of the spiral but if you used the whole spiral the flower would be bigger and would make a great decoration for a hairband, hat or bag and I'm sure to decorate many items! The thicker dies will cut so many materials too, this is why I still love these dies. I added a pearl to finish off and some leaves cut with my Cricut using Give A Hoot cart.
So don't think this die is just for a Christmas decoration it'so versatile!
Well all the snow is gone here in Wales at the moment but it's still very cold and we could have more next week! Keep safe and warm everyone
