This is a Gate Fold card created with the new die collection from Heartfelt Creations; the Layered Elegant Swirl Die (HCD 716). There is a video on Joan's Gardens blog to show you how to use the dies to create this card. I kept my card simple on the outside. The pretty corner flourish is from one of the new Flourish stamp set called "Rye Grass Flourish PreCut Set" (HCPC 3436). There are two new Flourish sets that you will love using year round. I added black pearls to the front of the card then tied a black bow around it to hold it closed.
Have you checked out the "I Want It All" offer on this new Heartfelt Creations Collection. You save $30 at Joan's Gardens.
Today I started working on decorating my Christmas tree and getting the house prettied up for Christmas. We purchased a new Martha Stewart artificial tree this year that is pre-lit. It is amazing how much quicker it is to finish with the tree when you don't have to string the lights. We used to always go out and cut down a fresh tree, but the last time we did this was when we found out the real tree was full of tiny little spiders. It was horrible to wake up the next day and find these tiny little black spots all over the vaulted ceiling and on the walls. No more spiders in our house!!!
