For our new release, our dear Sharon Caudle created a heart-felt (pun intended!) tutorial for you to check out!

Hello AI Fans!!

So have you seen the new AI People yet?? I love each and every one of them and simply must have them all!!  My card today features the fun Crutches Set!  Isn't she so cute and sassy?? Love her!! I stamped her onto cryogen white paper and colored her up with Copic markers (listed below). Then cut her out using the Spellbinders oval and petite scalloped oval dies. 

I wanted to make a heart with my felt, so I used more Spellbinder dies and ran them through my Cuttlebug. Please ignore my very well used plates. :) 

I added a fun bow made with May Art ribbon using the Bow Easy, and glued it to the center of the felt heart. I then stamped the sentiment and cut it out using more Spellbinder dies. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, and hope you grab your felt and join us in the challenge!

Copics used:
E000, E00, E11, E21, E23, E33, E95, E97, E99
R20, R24, R81, R83, R85
YG23, YG25
