Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Have Wednesday's become your favorite day? You know, the day that the designer's at Heartfelt Creations show all of the fabulous projects that they've been working on? I love it! I am always so inspired by all of the incredible projects that are shared. If you have missed it, every Wednesday, we not only give you a ton of eye candy, but also directions, so if you would like to CASE our cards, you can!

I love how elegant this card turned out - and I think it would be a great card for anyone!

Here are the details:

HCPC 3320 Vintage Word Background
HCPC 3301 Hydrangea/Posy Branch
HCD 708 Decorative Window Scene Die
HCD 701Posy Patch Die
HCPC 3303Posy Patch Flowers
Gold Gala Glitz

I made my background paper using the Vintage Words stamp - and stamping on Kraft cardstock using Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap, and then flicking it with some droplets of water to age it. I also distressed the edges of the paper . I stamped part of the Posy branch using Versamark ink and embossed in gold. Then I glued my Fancy Window Scene frame around the image. I stamped and cut Posy Patch flowers to match up with the background stamp, and pop-dotted some of them to create different heights on the flowers. I used gold lame Smooch around one of my background papers to highlight the edge, and also around some of the Dusty Attic Chipboard scallop.


Thanks for looking!
