Heartfelt Creations Springtime Cardinal Collection...And A Chance to Win!

It is Wednesday and time to show you a card I made using the Heartfelt Creations Springtime Cardinal Collection.  You can see the whole collection here:  heartfeltcreations.us  The beauty of these images is just too much for words!  I am having so much fun working with them!

The Springtime Cardinal Collection features 8 new PreCut Sets. These new sets coordinate with existing exclusive Heartfelt Creations dies manufactured by Spellbinders.The images in this collection are very classic and elegant, perfect for your copic markers, and you will love the fact that they coordinate with some of the existing Heartfelt Creation dies, so this is an added value for some of the dies you might already own.

Leave a comment on my blog or the Heartfelt Creations Blog by April 19 and one lucky person will win the entire release valued at $119.92. The winner will be announced on the HC blog on April 20.



Card Size: 5 1/8 X 6 1/8


I cut a 5 X 6 piece of watercolor paper and stamped my image with Black Tuxedo Memento Ink. I colored the image with Distress Inks. Once dry, I cut out around the image so that I could slide my Oval Spellbinders Die under the image and cut out using my Grand Calibur. I cut 1/8" strips of watercolor paper and adhered them to the back of the lower part of the oval. I did this to help create an effect and to help frame the sentiment. I centered and stamped the sentiment using Memento ink. I added pearls around the oval edge and tied a yellow ribbon and adhered it with Zip Dry Glue. I cut out the Parisian Accent corners from watercolor paper and glued them down then added a pearl to each of them. When the glue was dry I used score tape to adhere my layer to a piece of folded blue card stock.


That's about it for me this morning.  Don't forget to leave a comment here or over on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.  You just might win this whole collection!
