The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4 “ x 5 1/4” (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm) 
Taking the white card stock make the tent fold card base. The two matting papers are found in the paper collection, blue and green stripes. Cut the first layer a little smaller than the card base, the second about 1/4 ” (.5cm) smaller than the first matting layer.  Ink the edges with the Peeled paint ink then distress the edges. 

Taking the white card stock stamp and die cut the spruce trees x 3, snowflakes x 4, mistletoe x 4. Bring colour to the die cuts. 

Add the Red Berry crystal drops to the berries. Apply white drying glue to the spruce trees for snow then apply glitter to the glue before it dries to give a glittery snow effect. Same effect to be seen below on the window.

Taking again the white card stock stamp and die cut the window frame x 7. 
Find the small animal winter scene in the paper collection. Cut the scene out so you can make 3 layers between the window frames. Adhere the first 2 window frames to the snow and tree background. ( There will be two frames between each layer. ) Arrange the fussy cut trees and animals between each frame layer to make a 3d scene, when pleased with the scene adhere in place. ( For a deeper 3d effect you could add 2 extra window frames between the layers ) Apply the white drying glue and glitter to the window frame and ledge.

Make a bow from the ribbon. Arrange and adhere all the embellishments made on to the card matting then card front. To finish apply the diamond stickles to the snowflakes.

I hope you get enough of those close ups to be able to make this card. A great winter card for those cozy snowy days...think of wishing some one a great winter sport vacation...or just because you want to add to a box of chocolates gift...may be some one went that extra mile and cleaned the snow off the car or pathway...or just because you want to put a smile on the face of someone you love.
Who really needs a excuse to play with these great toys anyway!'s called art from the heart....

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday with...cardinals on wheels

Hello all. 
Today I have for you what I called "Cardinals on Wheels" card. I find these little birds so cute! Framed with the gorgeous lace half circle dollies frame.

HCPC-3792 Festive Holly cling stamp set

HCD1-7146 Festive Holly die set

Other Products Used:
 Zig clean color real brush pens: 024, 026, 052, 022, 041, 047, 096, 065, 075. Other: Clear crackle paint, Diamond Stickles, Heat Gun, Bone folder, Water coloring brush, Paper distressing tool, Scissors, Ruler, Coffee Archival Ink, Hot glue gun, Fussy Cutting Scissors, Double sided Tape, Double Sided Foam Tape, Misti, Dove puffy paint-white.

The finished size of this card is 5” x 7” (17.7cm x 12.6cm)
Take the white cardstock and make a book fold card base.  Find the red and the red-brown design paper in the collection and cut matting papers a little smaller than the other. Distress all the edges. Taking the water brush, bring water to the edges then curl and roll as seen in the photo.
From the red-brown paper cut the front banner 5” x 2.1/4” (13.5cm x 6cm) 
Work the edges the same as the other matting papers. 
Apply clear crackle paint to this layer then put aside to air dry. 
Taking the red design paper cut x2 dollies and the 4 banners. 
Using the white cardstock, stamp, color and die cut the cartwheel. Stamp and cut an extra cartwheel, fussy cut the birds and color them, these will be added as a second layer to the birds when given a little shape. Adhere the two cartwheel shapes together. Taking the whitest colored design paper, stamp the flowers also two med sized flower shapes for the leaves, enough for 3 small flowers with two layers. Color, die cut and give shape to these. Apply the white frosting and using the heat gun to fix the powder. Apply the puffy paint to the wheel as snow then the white frosting powder. Use the heat gun to dry. Adhere the extra layer to the birds. Order of placement and gluing: adhere the dollies in place, the red-brown banner using 3d foam tape-dots. Trim to fit, tuck under and adhere the red banners, two to each side of the red-brown banner. Adhere the wheel with 3d foam tape-dots.
Arrange and adhere the flowers and leaves with the hot glue gun under and around the wheel. To finish apply the diamond stickles to the berries.

These poinsettias are my favourite winter flower...laden with snow...they really give the chilly crispy winter feeling to come later in the year. Remember the hot chocolate and marshmallows in front of a crackling open fire but until then we are making the most of and enjoying the sunshine and all it has to offer.

With that thought....I wish you all a happy scrappy inky day.
