Heartfelt Creations New Life Collection - Release!

Just when you think that Heartfelt Creations can't outdo themselves, they go and release another wonderful collection! The New Life Collection is gorgeous (and you are going to want it all). Be sure to head to the blog and see the incredible inspiration, and then you will want to go to the store. Orders are shipped in the order that they are placed - and I know you are going to want to get your hands on these as quickly as possible!


Here is a card that I wanted to share with you today -

5 x 7 Easter Lily Card

HCPC 3370 Easter Lilies PreCut Set

HCD 710 Decorative Oval Window Die

Other: Graphic 45 Designer Paper (Once Upon a Springtime);Banana Leaf paper, ribbon, pearls, buttons, German Glass glitter, Kreaxions punch #305, Copics (R000,R00, R01,R02, YG91, YG93), Distress Inks (Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose)

Stamp Easter Lily and color with Copics or your choice of coloring medium. Cut out, but leave extra space around the curls of the leaves. After you have cut out, you can add some gold glass glitter along those thin edges to make them a little sturdier. Set aside. Use the Decorative Oval window die and make a cut and emboss using the banana leaf paper. Use the Vintage Photo distress ink, to add the details to the stenciled areas. Take coordinating cardstock and run the die through your machine – but this time – don’t use your cutting mat – only emboss the die. When you remove the paper from your machine, you will have the entire die embossed, which will allow you to cut it out with scissors creating a frame for the original die. Back the window openings with a coordinating DP. Add your flower with dimensional adhesives. Add ribbon and punched border . Finish the card with a large bow, decorated with buttons.
