It's time for more beautiful cards and projects prepared by the Heartfelt Creations design team. The new Heartfelt Creations blog is posted and sure to give you lots of inspiration for the last few Christmas cards you need to make. In January, Heartfelt Creations will be launching new product releases every second Wednesday of the month. The Springtime Medley Collection is scheduled to make it's debut on January 12, 2011, featuring 5 new PreCut Stamp sets and 1 Exclusive die.
I love working with the Heartfelt Creations flower stamps and dies. This card is made with a flower set I haven't posted before. These flowers are called Innoscents Flowers and can be cut out with the Nestabilities Blossom 2 dies.
This is a 5.5 inch square ivory card. A brown mat was cut to layer on the front. The design is stamped on a 1/8” smaller ivory piece of card stock. The Large Elegant Word Background "HCPC 3323 Large Elegant Word Background PreCut Set" was stamped using Tim Holtz “Antique Linen” Distress Ink. The edges were sponged with brown ink. The beautiful swirl "HCPC 2251 Elegante Border and Swirl PreCut Set" was stamped with VersaMark ink and gold embossed over the word background. The decorative corner border was cut out using brown card stock. Ten of the smallest flowers from the Heartfelt Creations" HCPC 2241 Innoscents Flowers 1 PreCut set" were stamped with VersaMark ink on brown card stock and embossed with Vanilla embossing powder. They were cut out with the matching Nestie die. Part of the petals were cut off five of the flowers so they could be dimensional on top of the other five flowers. These flowers were layered then arranged and attached with a small piece of dimensional tape above the beautiful corner flourish "HCD 704 Perfect Petals Dies". Martha Stewart punched branches were arranged under the flowers. A brown bow and brown and “blush” pearls were added to complete this card.
