Introducing the Heartfelt Creations new "FESTIVE HOLLY" collection

A chilly snowy winter card using these darling Cardinals...what a cute adorable pair!


Heartfelt Creations Products And Products Carried On Their Website:


Other Products Used: Spellbinder dies: S4-112 Ovals 3.3/8 “ x 1/2” Matting basics.
 Zig clean colour real brush: 024, 026, 052, 022, 041, 047, 093. Other: Coffee Archival ink, Bone folder, Water colouring brush, Paper distressing tool, Hole pricking tool, Scissors, Ruler, Peeled Paint distress ink, Hot glue gun, Glue dot, Fussy Cutting Scissors, Double sided Tape, Double Sided Foam Tape, Organza ribbon, Misti, Dove Craft puffy paint-white.


Instructions: for "Best Wishes" card 
The finished size of this card is 7”x 10” (17.5 cm x21.5 cm ) 
Taking the white card-stock make a book fold card base. Find and taking the design paper from the collection, use the basic matting spellbinder dies to make the 2 layers of matting. Use the largest size die and a smaller size. Distress the edges of both paper cuts. Taking the dolly die and the oval die, cut 2 dollies and an oval. Taking the embossing powder sprinkle a little on the top matting layer and oval. From under the paper, apply the heat to melt the powder. This will give you a look of falling snow. If you do it from the top the powder will blow away. 


Cut extra ovals from the white card stock and adhere to the finished design paper oval. Apply to the edges of the oval peeled paint ink. Adhere both matting layers to the card front then the 2 dollies to form a frame for the oval. Adhere the oval with the 3d foam dots. Stamp, colour and die cut the cardinals x 2.  For one of the cuts trim away the birds and discard. Apply the puffy paint to the snow and finish with glitter before it dry’s.


Make a triple bow and adhere with a glue dot across the lower front of the card. Make the sentiment applying the glitter by using the clear drying glue. Adhere the cardinals to the oval and a twig behind the oval. Tuck and adhere the twigs in and around the bow.

I hope you had fun scrolling down having a birds eye view with this weeks winter card.....now for my  fun good news...

I had the opportunity to join the Crafters Companion Design Team here in Nederland! (Holland)
Now what do you think I did?
...a hint...my darling husband always says I can't say NO!...I say...no, the problem is,
I don't want to say NO...lol
I have been so caught up in the excitement since last week Thursday when I met the team and all was official, (until then I was not going to count the chickens before they hatched) I have been juggling my crafting time on the calendar to fit everything in and making room in my studio cave to fit and file all those yum toys so I can find them in a jiffy.
 I have not had the time to a post as promised with the news... But don't worry it's coming...just got to edit a few photos and do a written. Not my most fav job...lol.

Here is a sneaky peak of what I have crafted with a few dies as a sample for the store
Handmade Hobby.


The real life sample can be found at the store 'Handmade Hobby' so if you are in the area pop in and take a look at the goodies they have in stock there...or pop on over and take a look at the workshops they have available at a very affordable price! I give a workshop once a month there. So I am not kidding when I say I'm juggling my time....lol
Handmade have a special on with some of the Crafters Companion dies and matching stamps.
We all love special...right.
With that thought...I am sending inky hugs and wishing you all a scrappy week...
till then, sussipoppins love,
Susan

Click HERE for a photo tutorial on a how to put this slider card base together.
This card when completed fits into an envelope measuring 9.1/2” x 7.1/2” (24.1 cm x 19 cm )

*To make the card base take the A4 card stock make 2 folds, on the long side, being 2.1/4” ( 6 cm ) each to form the foot of the card. Fold this to a hill and valley fold. 

*Cut the card front base at 5.9/16” x 6.12/16” ( 14.2 cm x 17.1 cm )

*The card slider at 2.10/16” x 4.1/2” ( 6.7 cm x 11.5 cm )

*Taking the peach card stock cut this a little smaller than the card front base.

*When preparing the card front matting with double sided tape, apply only to three sides. Leaving the top open so the slider can slip into this opening.

Taking the white card stock and the large rose heart stamp, stamp once with the Sap Green ink and the other with the gold embossing powder.
Die cut using both the outer and inside die pieces. Find the sentiment, using a scrap of design paper stamp with gold embossing powder.
Trim so you will have a banner that will fit into the heart centre.
Stamp three leaf swirls using the Sap green ink, apply a little ink to the heart of the leaves using the daubers.
Make the roses and rose buds.
Adhere the hearts with 3d foam tape or double dots. 


Slip the sentiment banner into the heart centre and secure.
Arrange and adhere a leaf swirl to each side of the heart, adhere the roses using as filler the extra leaf swirl, trimming as you go.
Apply crackle medium to the roses then the crystal powder. Apply heat to activate the mediums in the crystal powder.

Once you have got the card base construction under your belt, it is such an easy card to make. I love to use this as it always looks great and stands sturdy with all the 3d embellishments. I especially like it because it gives me enough room to play...lol.
I hope you take the time to give it a go and give me some feed back on it. 
Have a scrappy inky time with it.
If you have come here from Heartfelt Creations blog, you will know next week we have the new release....called Festive Holly. This is a great collection for winter scenes...if it's chilly over your way....well the collection will fit right in.
