Confetti Camera with Amy Kolling

 

Hello Reverse Confetti friends!  Amy Kolling here hosting the Confetti Camera theme:  For a Friend!  It's so much fun to add a homemade touch to a gift for a friend!

 I created this card and gift duo perfect for a friend.  Let's start with the mini hoop.  I started with a 3" hoop and fitted it with a piece of muslin.  The outline of the Hello Confetti Cuts was drawn using a fine tip black marker onto the muslin.  Using embroidery thread, the outline was stitched using black thread.  This took a while but it was worth it in the end.  I love felt and I knew I wanted to embellish the bottom with some SIMPLE felt florals.  Using my favorite stamp and die set, Blooms 'n Buds, I die cut 3 flowers and leaves out of felt.  To the centers of the yellow part of the flower, I stitched the center with black thread.  After arranging the flowers at the bottom of the hoop, I added the leaves.  When I was happy with the layout, the flowers and leaves were added using a hot glue gun.

 

For the matching card, I created a similar layout onto a white Stitched Rays Cover Panel using the same Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts.  Again, simple but effective.  I added a layered Hello Confetti Cut done in Midnight Cardstock along with a supporting "friend" sentiment from A Friend Like You.  As a finishing touch, I added white iridescent gems.
