This Wednesday brings you....

                                          
     “I Think You Are Beary Special” slider card
Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!

This was such a fun book card to make...
now for the product list and instructions.

"I Wish You Love" slider card

Heartfelt Creations Products And Products Carried On Our Website:

Other Products Used:
Nuvo Glitter Drops-Chocolate Fondue, Versa-mark, White drying glue, Stickles, Heat Gun, Inking tool, Bone folder, Scissors, Ruler, Black Archival Ink, Festive Berries, Black Soot, Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo, Ground Espresso, Mowed Lawn distress inks, Hot glue gun, Versa-mark, Fussy Cutting Scissors, Double sided Tape, Double Sided Foam 3d tape, White organza Ribbon, Misti, Softly Falling and Woodland SUP embossing folders. Glue dot.

Instructions:
The finished size of this slider tunnel card is 8 1/2 “ x 11” ( 13.5 cm x 15 cm )
  Click  HERE to see all measurements and how to make the slider card base
Click HERE to see how to work with the dies
The card front for this slider card is 5 1/2 “ x 7 “ ( 14 cm x 17.7 cm ) Once you have made the card base, find the matting paper in the paper collection. Cut this a little smaller than the card base. You will only need to cover the card front 1” (2 cm ) down as the tunnel card book will be adhered to the rest of the card front base. Cut from the design paper 7 “ x 1 “ ( 17.7 cm x 2.4 cm ) for the tunnel card book spine.  Using the Mowed Lawn, ink all the edges of the design paper that will be showing. Adhere the prepared design paper in place. Put aside until you have completed the tunnel book card. Adhere the design paper to the tunnel book card spine, covering the spine and a little on the front. Here starts the fun! How to make the whole in the pages: Chose two papers for each page remembering you have a main page and a top page which I did not decorate for this card. Once the pages have been chosen and are cut to size, place the page onto the design paper and trace around the whole. Find the die to fit the oval whole and tape in place before die cutting. Place the tape to the inside of the oval in case the tape rips the paper when taking it off, then it will not show. Tape well as you do not want this to move in your machine! Emboss the papers you want embossed with the embossing folders. You can use either wet glue or double side tape to adhere the pages together and into the bookbinding. This project was started with the front page then went to the back of the book and worked forward. You can do what ever suits you. Note, there is no oval hole in the front page because it is covered; this is so it will look like a book cover. Take the largest oval die with the fancy edge and cut out from the front page. Cut a smaller oval. Cut a few extra from white card stock and adhere together so the ovals will be very firm and will not bend. These will be adhered back in place with foam 3d dots after the edges are inked with mowed lawn ink. Apply the white drying glue to the roof and water wheel then apply the crystal clear glitter. Leave to dry. When this is dry adhere on place once all the pages are done. Find the twin paper and fancy cut the two cardinal birds. Apply the glue and glitter to the snow on this fussy cut. This will also be later adhered with 3d foam dots. The berries are highlighted with a few drops of Red Berry crystal gloss drops. The sentiment is stamped onto the white card stock, cut into strips and the edges are inked. Two lines are adhered to each page of the book. The back page:  Find x2 the design paper with the large deer on it. Fussy cut the deer from one of these papers. The fussy cutting will be used for two pages. Stamp, colour and die cut the twigs from the window fillers sets. Make x4; apply the glue and glitter to the snow on the twigs. Use the same paper for the background. Adhere to the back page. Adhere the prepared sentiments. Use the remaining deer for the next page, building the picture as you go. Do the same for the remaining pages planning and fussy cutting as you go. Not forgetting to apply the glue and glitter before adhering the page to the book. It takes a little longer but then glitter will not get to where it is not wanted. The page with the window: This is stamped and die cut an extra 5 times. Adhere together then ink the window frame with vintage photo. Die cut the fancy frame from the window box elements die set from whit card stock to use as a window curtain, adhere to the back of the window frame before adhering the frame to the page. Stamp the flowers and mistletoe branch for the foot of the window. Arrange and adhere in place. Adhere all the sentiment s to the pages. To finish, add stickles to the snow on the trees and snowflakes on the front page. Adhere the book to the card front. Make a large triple bow and adhere to the top of the slider with a glue dot. To finish the card, adhere the mistletoe branch and flower to the knot of the bow.
