Good morning ladies. It's Wednesday and time to share another Heartfelt Creations card! But first I'd like to congratulate Marilyn (newfiecrafter) who won the new Spring Cardinal Release ! I know she is so excited!
I'm kinda partial to this one...reds are very difficult to work with and wouldn't you know, the first stamps I receive are all Cardinals. Well my coloring skills are lacking so please be kind...I'm really trying to get these beautiful birds to look like they are supposed to. So I have been doing the old practice, practice, practice. My poor brain is taxed to the max!
My card is 5 1/2" X 5 1/2"
Cut Mariposa paper 5 1/4 X 5 1/4 and glue to card base. Stamp image onto white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Add glitter to small amount of white glue and add to edges of the roses for a little glimmer. Cut out the Cardinal with die and used Zots to raise it for dimension. Cut the Parisian Motif out of watercolor paper and glued to card then added the image to that. Cut the border from Parisian Motif Dies and glued to the bottom of the card. My seam binding was colored with Distress Ink and scrunched to make it look old. I pulled a thread to gather the seam binding and then glued to the top of the border. I tied a double bow from the seam binding and glued to the border also. The inside of the card has the sentiment stamped in black and cut out with Fancy Tags Two. I added a pearl for interest.
