Eileen Hull: Mini Cheery Flower Cards

Hi everyone! I am here to share my Inspiration Team project for today. This months theme is cards using Eileen Hull's diecuts. I am always in need of little enclosure cards for gifts and these are some fun cards I came up with.



I started with the Spring Leaves and Heart & Soul Flower diecuts and cut six flowers and six leaves from felt.


Next I cut three Needle Book diecuts from Yellow and Ivory Mini Reserve Dot Cardstock and folded each one in half to create my card base.


Next I back stitched three of the leaves down the center. If you are unfamiliar with how to do  the back stitch you can google or bing to get the directions.


For each of the leaves placed another felt leaf on the backside blanket stitched them together. The blanket stitch directions can also be found on the internet.


 For each of the cards I adhered the flowers and a leaf together.


I added a strip of patterned cardstock to the center of each card.


The center of each flower I glued a button and a mix of sequins, gems and Dew Drops to each.


There you have it! Some bright and cheery cards ready to be added to someone's package! Be sure to hop on over to Eileen Hull's blog to see what the Inspiration Team has created. As always if you have any questions about these cards please let me know.


Also I would like to submit these cards for the following challenge: 

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

  4. Hi Tonya! This is so cute, and I especially love the hand-stitching you've added to the sweet felt leaves. That's a great idea, and I will have to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration on that one. And thanks so much for sharing your amazing art with us. I hope you will join us again soon.
    Blessings,
