Tactile butterflies with felt

I've combined two challenges this week, for the colours the CAS Coour and Sketches challenge #183 and for the  Less is More challenge for the tactile aspect.

I used felt for my tactile element and I diecut the three butterflies from the same name die set from Simon Says stamp.

The sentiment is from Sizzix (happy birthday by Stephanie Barnard) and I stamped it with Versafine black onyx ink.

At first I wanted to use the Paper smooches Dainty flowers die, but the taupe was hard to incorporate, so flicking through my dies I came acroos these and some from Joy craft, that were too detailed to diecut I found out ;-)

Adhered the felt onto the crdbase with Aleene's fast
grab tacky glue and some foamtape for the yellow one.

I like using felt with dies, I made this card for an old challenge and the tactile caterpillar just melts my heart, but as I've already used it, I can't enter it , so just for you to look at ;-)


  1. Super cards Maaike - the felt butterflies are lovely and look so stroke-able! Your caterpillar is just adorable and is going on my "to be CASEd" list for one of my nephews or nieces who will love it! Thanks so much for sharing :)

  2. Beautiful, Maaike! I haven't used felt on cards - great idea for this challenge.

  3. Fun cards - love the touch felt! The rainbow caterpillar is adorable! Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  4. I love your felt butterflies Maaike, but your little caterpillar is simply darling!
    Thanks so much

  5. Love both cards Maaike. Haven't used felt lately on my cards but it does give a wonderful tactile quality, an extra dimension for CAS cards. Thanks for joining us at CC&S this week. Stef x

  6. Super job combining the two challenges! Thanks so much for making CC&S one of them.
    Your caterpillar card is just adorable!

  7. I've never tried using felt - thanks for the idea. The felt butterflies are great but I confess that I really love your caterpillar card, it's fabulous. Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches again this week. Liz x

  8. I love felt with dies too, Maaike and both your examples show it off perfectly! The felt butterflies look fab. Thank you for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  9. How fabulous your cards are Maaike. I loved the felt butterflies when I saw them (but your caterpillar is so wonderful that it is a shame you had used it before). Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More.
