Good morning everyone!  This is my second post this morning but I really wanted to show you this card I made for Heartfelt Creations   This was one of the projects I submitted for the final round of competition for the design team. 


Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCPC 3468 Tattered Blossoms PreCut Set
HCD 722 Tattered Blossoms Die
HCPC 340l Bella Rose Scroll PreCut Set
HCPC 3405 Leaf Medley PreCut Set
October Paper Pack

Other Supplies Used: Spellbinders dies (Squares Large, Lace Doily Motifs) glitter, Memento Ink, shimmer sprays, Ranger Distress Inks, glue, Scor-Tape, Canson Watercolor Paper, dimensional tape, green card stock, white card stock, Paper Blossoms Tool Kit

Instructions:  Card Size 6” X 6”
I used watercolor paper for the card base for stability.  Cut a piece of design paper just a little smaller and adhere to the card base.  Next I cut out the motifs using watercolor paper and set aside.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of watercolor paper and cut out using one of the square dies.  Next I created a frame for the sentiment using two of the square dies.  I placed one inside the other and cut them out of watercolor paper.  I put some dimensional tape behind the frame and adhered it to the stamped piece and then glued that to the square motif.  Mount the square motif to the center of the card base and position the decorative pieces around the square and glue them down.  I then stamped and cut the leaves using the green card stock and some ink was added to the edges.  I sprayed these with the shimmer spray and while damp I used the tool kit to shape the leaves until I was happy with the look.  Next I stamped the flowers onto plain white card stock and used distress inks to color.  I used water to dampen the petals and shaped them and then laid them aside to dry.  Once dry I glued the layers together and added some glitter to the center of the flowers.  I positioned the flowers and leaves around the square motif until I was happy with the look and then I glued them down.

Hi Glenda,

What a lovely card. I also like the ornament post below too. I've been packing up most of my craft supplies in the hopes of selling my place. It's tough -- although I'm trying to store some of my cardmaking supplies into boxes so I can get my fix!

Hugs,
Kay
