My 1st posting (this one) is a easy peasy tent fold card with the sentiment 'Congratulations'
This month, later in the month, has a 'to die for' special launch, full of yum and no calorie goodness, so hold onto your seats because the ride is well worth waiting for.
Below is a description of whats to come with this collection.Hit the open road with the new Young at Heart Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Retro in style, this fun and playful transportation themed assembling of designer papers, cling stamp sets and coordinating dies will have you reminiscing and reliving past road trips with family, taking in a flick at the local drive in, sitting at the late night hamburger joint with friends in your classic automobile, or soaring the open skies in a vintage airplane! The classic style paper collection is filled with far out transportation graphics from an era in time where life was carefree and the journey was wherever the open road would take you! Diamond checkered patterns, retro themed signs, beach scenes and late night diner script mixed with vintage vehicle graphics are enveloped in a groovy colour palette of bright stoplight reds, yellows, and greens, with a hint of electric pinks, flashy teals and glowing orange tones. Two sets of nifty cling stamp sets with coordinating dies reveal high wheeled bicycles, old fashioned airplanes, classic coupes, vintage pick-up trucks as well as several nostalgic banners and signs! A third fun filled cling stamp set flaunts hip and amusing sentiments sporting 50’s era style script perfect for completing the styling of days gone by on all of your retro themed creations!

Taking the white card stock make the tent fold card base. Find the design paper with the blue in it, also the paper with the world map print. Cut the blue paper a little smaller than the base for the matting. Distress the edges. Adhere to the card base with 3d foam squares. Using the blue paper cut a banner, being 3” ( 7.5 cm ) wide. Taking the world map printed paper cut a banner a little smaller for a matting layer. Distress the edges of both papers. Adhere both papers to the centre of the card front with glue, leaving the edges free so you can curl them up a little. Taking the white card stock stamp, die cut and colour the car, vintage bike, sentiment and branches of leaves.
Trim away the wheels from the vintage bike and colour these with the yellow ink. From the pale yellow card stock, stamp colour and die cut the flowers and leaf clusters from the Classic Rose collection. Spraying these with the water mister then bring a little shape to the leaves and flowers. Arrange the embellishments made as seen in the card photo. First placing the car in it’s place then tuck behind it the flower, wheels, sentiments and leaves. Place also the flowers so they are a little over the car wheels.
Adhere the crystal buttons to the flower centres. To finish, apply the diamond stickles to the car windows, leaves and the flower centres on the car.
Of course you can always change a sentiment to fit whatever suits the occasion, there is enough sentiments to chose from in the stamp sets.
