Fun Felt

I'm expanding my interest in materials beyond paper.  Paper will always be my first choice in crafting but I had a hankering to try some felt with die cuts.  I recently purchased some of Stephanie Barnard's excellent wool felt on her The Stamps of Life website and it cuts like a dream.  I used a variety of dies in my Big Shot and was pleased that I didn't need a shim to get a clean cut.  The felt stayed clean and sharply cut on the edges.  I have only 3 colors at this point in Cornflower, Avacado and Grape (can't wait to get a few more) so my first card is a bit limited but the results pleased me.  Paper is from Authentique "Curiosity Collection" 12x12 double sided paper pad.  I added the faux stitching on the pocket with an extra fine black Sharpie.  Thanks for looking.
