Pleated Hummingbird Swirls...

Good morning everyone!  It is the beginning of a brand new week here in East Tennessee and it's very hot.  Our temperatures have climbed into the 90's and it is very dry here.  A few afternoon showers would surely be welcome!
I'm here this morning to share another card I created for Heartfelt Creations using the brand new Botanical Orchid collection.


Heartfelt Creations Products and Products Sold in Their Shop:
HCDP1-267 Botanical Orchid Paper Collection
HCD-3742 Regal Hummingbird Cling Stamps
HCPC-3354 Classic Message Cling Stamps
HCD1-780 Ornate Borders and Pockets Die
HCD1-7102 Regal Hummingbird Die
100 Pcs. Double Dots
Crystal Art Glitter
Designer Dries Clear Glue
Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves and Tuxedo Black

Other Products Used:  Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, Scor-Tape, Bling on a String, Hot Glue, White Cardstock

Instructions:
My card is 4 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Make card base and add the die cut border and then cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Cut a piece of paper 3" x 11" and score at 1 1/2", 2", 3", 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5", 6", 6 1/2", 7 1/2", 8", 9" and 9 1/2" . Next I measured up on the two short sides by 1 1/2" and on one side I cut from the 1 1/2" mark to the 5" score line.  On the other side I cut from the 1 1/2" mark to the 6" score line.   Fold paper in mountain and valley fold and adhere to card front.  Next cut a piece of paper 1" wide and glue to the top of the pleated piece.  Glue down the bling.  Next stamp and cut out the hummingbird and color with Distress Ink.  Use a Double Dot to adhere to the card front.  Stamp the sentiment and your card is ready to go!

This card is featured on the Heartfelt Creations Blog along with many other creations by the very talented design team. Go have a look around and I know you will be inspired!  This does it for me this morning, but be sure to come back on Wednesday when I will have something brand new to share with you!
