Fun, Funky, Fabulous FELT...

G'day everyone Gillian here, it's my turn to dare you this week, as you may have noticed felt is really hot in the crafting world at the moment, and it's available in so many ways now, in sheet form in a rainbow of colours, precut shapes, beautiful felt borders, even lovely patterned felt and felt with glitter...
So I reckon it's a great medium to dare you with.
So here's the dare, Make a card and include some felt,
the theme & style are entirely up to you,
Can't wait to see what you come up with.
and as always, you can share your work with everyone in the two ways. Either leave a message with your blog link so we can come and see, or email your pictures to us at www.daringcardmakers@hotmail.com, with your name and website if you have one.
Here are some Scrummy Cards from the Design Team to get you inspired.

A very enjoyable dare Gillian - I haven't played with felt for a long time. The design cards are all fab. Need to check out the dare cards later.

I resisted looking at everyone else's until I had finished so now I am off to drool.

Rainowgirl said...

Well your cards were beautiful ladies, but this challenge proved not for me and I'm really disappointed with the result - ah well. Still I have posted it for all to see. (Actually I had more fun making Sheila's red onion and tomato flan.)

gaby said...

I love the idea. When I am back, I will try it.
