Good morning everyone! If you are wondering where I have been trying to get through the fog of an upper respiratory infection...I'm on the 9th day and I might just be coming around. I have laid on the sofa all these days and totally neglected my blog. I'm so sorry but I just didn't have it in me to sit here and communicate. Also right in the middle of everything my Internet service went down and I had to muddle through the "try this" stuff to finally figure out my modem was shot! So here I am with a new outlook on life, new modem, blinking happily on my desk, and ready to visit once again. I didn't realize how much I depend on the Internet these days. It is my window to the world and I felt stripped without it.
My card today is one I made for Heartfelt Creations a week ago and I'm just now sharing it with you.
The Heartfelt Creations Products Used: HCD 716 Layered Elegant Swirl Die, HCPC 3406 Botanical Floral 1 PreCut Set, HCPC 3407 Botanical Floral 2 PreCut Set, HCPC 3405 Leaf Medley PreCut Set.
My Card is 5" X 7" I made the card base out of watercolor paper and then cut piece of watercolor paper and ran through the Cuttlebug embossing folder. Attach to the card. I cut the the die to create a circle and then used a Spellbinders Standard Circle die to create the gold piece to go behind the circle medallion. I stamped and embossed the rose petals and then shaped them and formed into the roses. If you dampen the paper just a little it allows you to curl the edges and make the flower look like it is real. I stamped the leaves and cut out and placed them around the roses to create a sort of spray. And of course I used shimmer sprays to spray everything and give a gold shine.
This card could be used for many different occasions and I love how it turned out. If you would like any of these stamps you can go to the Heartfelt Creations Website and have a look around. I know you will find something you just can't live without. Their stamps are a quality product and you will not be disappointed!
Well that is about it for me this morning...I'm going back and rest a little more. Have a wonderful day and if you are able to....."Breathe"!
