I loved the backing sheet from the pack of Lilybee Design Lovely Rub-ons, so I decided to use it as my layout base. I kept the design simple because I wanted to draw attention to the gorgeous voila felt lily orchid that I had decorated. On it’s own it would have not stood out against the pale cream background, so I drew around it onto green cardstock, making some of the leaves much bigger than they actually were, and the stems slightly thicker, and then cut it all out. I put pink patterned paper behind the flower petals. Once I had lightly inked the edges of the green cut-out, I stuck the felt flower down on top of it, and added pearls to the flowers for a little extra detail. A ribbon at the top of the page made a feature of the hanging tab, and decorative strips at the bottom covered the barcode and some wording. To finish it off all that was needed was a bit of journaling and some machine stitching. I added a section of the felt flower, decorated in the same way, beside the journaling and title to balance the page.
