Heartfelt Creations Wednesday


This is my very sparkly card that I am sharing on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today. Since we've just got a few days till Christmas, I thought I had better sneak this one in.

Here are the details for the card:

HCPC 3348 Cardinal Pine Cone Border

Clear Cardstock

Staz-on Ink (black)

Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear

Art Institute Metal glue tip

I stamped the cardinal border using Staz-on ink onto a piece of Clear Cardstock. Then, I chose my first color of glitter (red) and filled in the areas on my image that I wanted to be red. I sprinkled heavily with glitter and let dry (It took quite a while for this to dry completely - You can tell by looking under the clear cardstock, when the glue is completely clear). I continued this process until I had added each layer of glitter. I colored in details of the stamp using Smooch inks (the branch - Molasses, the beak -Carrot, filler on pine needles - Luscious Lime)

For my DP, I used all papers from My Mind's Eye, I Believe Collection. On the bottom layer, I inked the edges using Distress Ink in Fired Brick. My other mats were layers with red cardstock, stitched with gold thread and distressed. I attached the glittered image (glitter side down) to another layer of cardstock, using dimensional adhesives stuck on the cardinals (so it wouldn't show through to the front side).
