Mid Month Reminder - Feb CAS Mix Up Challenge

Just a mid-month reminder from me today that there's still time to join in on the February CAS Mix Up Challenge!
For my reminder card I used both felt and cork, stamping and die cuts.  A day late for Valentine's day - but I made this ahead of time and it's already been mailed and received!
I die cut the thin cork and red felt using heart Nestabilities.  The background die cut is Mix and Mat Plaid Die set from PTI.  I stamped a sentiment from Distressed Hearts from MFT on a Sentiment Strip die cut from MFT.
I used ScorTape to adhere the cork heart to the background and I used Tombow Glue on the felt heart and sentiment strip.

We have until February 24th to link up our cards using felt, cork or canvas - there are several links to techniques in using all three over at the CAS Mix Up Blog.  Please join us!

STOP THE PRESSES!!!   Loll and Bonnie are launching a new CAS Challenge on March 3rd!
You'll find it here

We hope you'll play along and get all of your Christmas cards done early!!  I know I'll be joining in!!

Beautiful design Julia. LOVE that large scalloped edged cork heart with the red felt heart on top. Lots of texture and depth, along with your dry embossed and die-cut backing. Cool plaid background done in white-on-white. xx

Your red felt heart on the scalloped cork heart is truly RICH against that INCREDIBLE white card base.
I love this design, it truly is beautiful. Thanks Julia, xx

Very pretty Valentine card, Julia! The combination of cork and felt gives warmth to the card. The beautiful and intricate die-cut background panel (white on white) adds great texture! Hideko xx
