As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Another Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and another senior moment, we are using Simon says Stamp Products the bit I missed was Fun with Felt. I confess I don't have the dies but lucky for me one of my team-mate did and she sent me some felt using Blooming Heart die. When I checked out the die I was impressed that you get all the flowers etc to decorate your heart.

You can buy everything you need to make your plush felt ornament including loads of colours of felt here at Simon Says Stamp.

I added a bit of stuffing in my heart but you could make a lavender bag to place inside.

I then decided to make a Book Card to place my heart in the middle, biggest problem, I hadn't made one for ages and had a hard job tracking down a tutorial. I used this one for metric measurements, you can use the blogs translator if you need to read the details. I found this one in imperial measurements.

To make my acetate front, I used the Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangles before sticking together. I put a false front and back to hide where I stuck the ribbon to fasten.

Also in the tutorial it punched a border on one end of the concertina folded card but I die-cut the Lawn Fawn Scallop Border separately and glued on after the inside was made.

I used the Simon Say Stamp Stitched Daisy and Cluster of Leaves to decorate the front.

Here's a side view so you can see the concertina folds that look like book pages.

I was really please how my heart and book card turned out then I saw the fabulous creation by my team- mates and check out Kath's Blog from Simon say Stamp Monday Challenge team.

Hopefully the Simon Says Stamp team decide to make some felt dies for Snowmen, Penquins etc for all those Christmas Fayre's that happen in December.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
