Friday Morning......

Good Friday Morning and I hope you are doing well!  Where has this week gone?  It just seems like I turned around once and the whole week just slid past me.  I'm here this morning to share another card I have made for Heartfelt Creations!  I'm enjoying playing with the Chritmas Card Collection and getting a head start on some of my cards that I will need to send out during the holidays.




Merry Christmas Card

Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCPC 3556 Christmas Song PreCut Set
HCPC 3553 Peaceful Night PreCut Set
HCDP1 236 Christmas Card Collection

Other Supplies:  Canson watercolor paper, cream card stock, dark green card stock, Memento ink, Prisma Color Pencils, Crayola pencils, mineral spirits, pink ribbon, Ranger Distress Inks, Dimensional Tape,  Scor-Tape, white Color Box Ink

Instructions:  Card Size 4 1/4” X 5 1/2"
Make card base out of watercolor paper for strength and stability.  Cover with a piece of the pretty paper that has been edged with distress inks.   Stamp an image using the white ink onto the paper as a background.  Stamp the Merry Christmas image and bird onto cream colored card stock and color with the pencils and mineral spirits.  Cut out the bird and use dimensional tape to attach to the front of the image.  Mat the image piece onto a piece of the dark green cardstock and tape the pink ribbon to the edges of the matted piece.  Tape this piece to the card front and the card is ready to go.  This card is relatively flat and would be easy to mail.
 
So there you have it for me this morning.  I'm off to get my second cup of coffee and see if I can focus this morning.

This is a real Beauty Glenda, such a cute little bird perched up there, and his chest matches the flowers so nicely too....
