Heartfelt Creations Inspiration

I created a sturdy gift bag from cardstock, and decorated it with Heartfelt Creations products.

Heartfelt Creations Products:
Burst of Splendor Paper Pad HCDP1
Dahlia Bouquet PreCut Set HCPC 3550
Timeless Amour Die HCD

May Arts Ribbon
Art Institute Glitter
Xyron Mega Runner
WorldWin Papers Cardstock

Create a tall bag from cardstock, using basic box making techniques.  Cover each side of the bag with patterned paper.  Cut a decorative panel from the paper, and stamp the dahlia centers on each side of the flower.  Trace the design with Dries Clear Adhesive, and sprinkle with glitter.  Hand cut two printed dahlias and shape in the palm of your hand, using an embossing tool.  Apply to the decorative panel with foam adhesive.  Cut two of the fancy hearts from the Timeless Amour set and glue at the top and bottom of the panel.  Add a cellophane bag to hold your goodies and tie off with a bow.

Elegant Summer Card

 Can you believe August is already here? How is the summer going by so quickly? My card today is an elegant summer card, that would work well for any special occasion.

 The flowers and leaves were all cut with white cardstock, and colored with pigment inkpads.  You can see how this technique really shows off the beautiful embossing of the leaves.
