Many Prayers - Cards with Felt

Good morning! I thought I would take a few minutes to write up the blog post on these - I shared a sneak peek of them on a post I published last night comparing the new Simon Says Stamp Felt with their card stock and ink (click HERE to view that post) - these cards are where I put all the hard work of finding matches to good use - and it was so worth it! Hopefully it is helpful for you too!

I made a total of 6 cards in 3 different color combos, and with a slightly different sentiment combination - but all using the same exclusive Simon Says Stamp/Hero Arts Prayers Stamps and Die set. I love all the beautiful combinations of sentiments from this little stamp sets and had fun combining them. So first up - the yellow cards:

I die cut several little flower/button bits, and some leaves - I actually only planned on making one card of each color, but I had enough die cut felt pieces to put together a second one of each. Since I had it all laying on my desk, I figured it made good sense to spend the little extra bit of time to make double the amount of cards!

I stitched the larger flower together with white twine, then added it to the centers of the smaller flowers as well.

Then there is the pink duo:

I die cut the bottom border using two different sizes of the dies in Simon Says Stamps Wavy Scallop Stitches - I liked the scale of the larger scallops with the larger flowers, and the smaller scallops with the tiny flowers!

I adhered all the felt pieces down with Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive - it seemed to do a fabulous job of holding everything in place!

And then there is the purple combination:

Once I had the felt and sentiment done, I added a generous sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh sequins in varying colors - love the sparkle they add!

Finished off by adhering the front panel with foam over the colored card stock cardbases.

 And linking to a couple challenges - first up, the purple cards fit perfectly with the current Sparkle and Shine Challenge:
