Another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday....

It's Wednesday again and I'm here to share another little project featuring Heartfelt Creations products!  The design team has been working with the Snow Kissed Collection and there are projects listed on the Heartfelt Creations Blog. Go by and visit and I'm sure you will be inspired to work on your Christmas cards now!

I had so much fun creating this little shadow box that could hold any number of goodies for the season and when it's empty you still have this lovely scene to enjoy.

This box is 6 X 6.  Cut one piece of cardstock 8 X 8 and one piece of cardstock at 8 1/16 X 8 1/16.  Score both pieces at 1" around all four sides.  Glue the bottom piece together and set aside.  Now working on the top piece, cut a circle in the middle of the card, then cut out a snowflake and cut off until there is only a short piece left.  Glue it so that it makes a grid for the circle cut out.  Next take a piece of blue cardstock and cut a circle in it.  Place it behind the cut out on the top part of the box and glue the piece of the snowflake between the blue and the white so the cut part is hidden.  Cut another piece of blue cardstock to fit the inside bottom part of the box and glue it down.  Next I found an image of the sleigh on one of the card fronts and cut it out using the circle die again.  Glue this so it is showing behind the circle on the box top.  I used hot glue to apply some bling around the circle just to give it a festive look.

I fussy cut the little snowman and ornaments on another card front and glued it to the top of the box.  Next stamp the little snowman onto watercolor paper and color using the Zig markers  and the iridescent Medium.  Once it dried, I glued it to the corner piece and fussy cut a sentiment out of the paper.  Stamp, emboss and cut out the trees: add glitter to the front of the trees and then use dimensional tape to adhere to the top of the box.  When I embossed the snowflakes, I added some glitter to the embossing powder and then embossed and cut out.   I decided where I wanted the snowflakes to go and then used dimensional tape to adhere them.

This is actually the first time I have made a shadow box and I have really enjoyed making and decorating it.  Try one for yourself.  You will be so pleased you did.

Celebrating You.....

Good morning everyone.  I'm here this morning to share a quick and easy flat card that can be mailed without extra postage.  Most of my cards have lots of layers and dimension and of course flowers and big fluffy bows.  I needed a quick card to send to a friend who isn't feeling well.

I used Heartfelt Creations Everyday Heroes paper collection and it does all the heavy lifting on this card.  I loved these old boots and they reminded me of a farmer's boots so I just fussy cut them out and used dimensional tape to add them to the top layer of my card.

Well this is it for me this morning.  Just remember no matter where you are or what you are doing today....take a moment for yourself and "Breathe".

Other Supplies Used:  Faded Jeans Distress Ink, White Cardstock, Elmers Spray Adhesvie, Dimensional Tape, Bling on a String, White Seam Binding, Hot Glue

My card is 5 X 7.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Create a banner using white cardstock and cover it with a coordinating piece of the paper collection.  Hot glue the bling around  the edges.  Wet and scrunch the seam binding and when dry tie a bow.  Adhere with the hot glue.  Next I stamped and cutout the snowflake using white and then cut out one in blue to be the backing of the snowflake emblem.  Spray the adhesive onto the snowflake and apply the glitter.  Set aside to dry.  Now use dimensional tape under the banner piece and also under the snowflake.  This gives the card extra dimension.
