Heartfelt Creations Inspiration

I've got a Christmas card to share with you today that uses Heartfelt Creations non-Christmas stamps and dies (except the sentiment of course!)

Cardstock: WorldWin Papers
Patterned Papers: Heartfelt Creations – Classic Editions
Stamps: Heartfelt Creations ( Mini Vintage Floret, Joyous Noel, Vintage Floret Frame)
Dies: Heartfelt Creations ( Vintage Floret,  Decorative Leafy Frame,
Embossing Powder: Wow (gold)
Ink: Clearsnap – Top Boss Embossing Ink; Pigment Ink (Chianti)
Pearls: Want2Scrap
Ribbon: May Arts  3/8”Wired Sheer
Glitter: Stampendous  Pearl Ultra Fine - Melon
Adhesives:  Xyron Mega Runner; Xyron  Creatopia

Directions:  Stamp the Floret Frame background stamp with watermark ink, and heat emboss.  Line the matching die up with the stamped image, and run through die-cut machine.  Cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the decorative frame.  Run through Xyron Creatopia, and apply adhesive to the right side of the paper.  Adhere the stamped/die cut frame to this sheet.  Sprinkle with a transparent glitter, so that there are no sticky areas remaining.  Stamp and die cut flowers with the matching die.  Slightly shape the flowers and attach to the corresponding flowers on the frame, using a foam adhesive.   Add pearls for the flower centers. Die cut a 2nd cut from the frame, using the dark red patterned paper.  Remove the center circle, stamp the sentiment with watermark ink, and heat emboss with gold.  Adhere to the center of the frame.  Mount the frame on the same red patterned paper, and apply to a 5 x 7 card base.  Finish with a ribbon bow at the top left corner of the frame, and a length of ribbon across the bottom.
