Fun with Felt

I've always wanted to try cutting felt with my Cricut, and it turns out it's really easy! I made my card base with Elegant Edges, by welding two 5.44" oblong shapes together on my Gypsy. I added a couple of layers in decreasing sizes and ran the brown layer through the Cuttlebug.

To make my ice-cream cone, I ironed some "Heat 'n Bond" to my felt and then cut the cone from Sweet Shop at 3.5" using the deep cut blade in my Cricut. I was surprised with how easily it cut! I then handstitched around the edges and adhered it together and to the the card with a glue gun.

My little tag was made with a Papertrey Ink die and stamps, and I attached it to the card with some twine.

  3. I've always been afraid to try it in the Cricut. You make it sound so easy! I LOVE it! Beautiful job and very nice hand stitching too! Hugs- Glora

  4. I want some ice cream now! Beautiful, love the stitching very nice touch.


  5. This is so cute, I've always wondered how PTI's felt would cut with the Cricut---glad you tried it out!!

  6. This is truly an amazing card.. I love the "vanilla, chocolate and strawberry" colors and also the idea of incorporating felt onto a card. So creative!


  7. LOVE, love this card! I've always wanted to use felt with my CE too! Thanks for the motivation! :o)

  11. I love the look of the felt on your card Katie! Where can I get "Heat and Bond"? Thanks for sharing!

  12. So cute! At Valentine's I made some applique hand towels and cut heart shapes using my Cricut. It was OK but didn't work perfectly with the regular blade so I'm glad to know the other blade solves the cutting. I was able to hand trim them a bit for a cleaner edge and the towels turned out well. Putting the DC blade on my shopping list! Thanks for sharing, J

  13. Katie, I can tell you're lovin' elegant edges! now of course I want it, I was at michael's on friday looking for it! I bought felt 6mos. ago and still haven't tryed it! Maybe by the time you get back I will! ;)
