Hi, to start the new collection off, today I have a tend fold card without a sentiment....
this can be a good thing....a card to save in the stash for a rainy day....you know, the card you need in a hurry and you don't have the time to make right now....lol...
Introducing the Camellia Carnation collection
Beautifully ruffled in delicate layers and commonly gifted to express love, fascination, and distinction, the carnation flower is certainly recognizable and a floral garden and arrangement favorite. Thought to be one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world and is known to be a wonderful choice for special occasions such as, weddings or just because occasions. With an outstanding reputation as a cut flower, and an amazing array of colors and sizes, it is no wonder that the carnation flower remains so popular today! Heartfelt Creations invites you to celebrate the beauty and gentle humbleness of the carnation with the Camelia Carnation Collection! With a color palette of fiery reds, pastel pinks, sunset orange tones, and lush hues of greens, the gorgeous paper collection brings with it a bold but feminine feel. Filled with attractive carnations clusters, exquisite flower gardens, and decorative lace like details, this pretty paper collection is sure to become a perennial favorite. Two cling stamp sets and coordinating dies come together to create enamoring and realistic carnation blossoms with delicately illustrated details and varying sized petals ideal for assembling full sized carnation flowers to charming mini versions, while a third cling stamp set lends itself perfectly to layering and creating dimensional carnation clusters. So join with us as we celebrate and give recognition to the traditional, but somewhat overlooked and under praised carnation flower!
This card sure was fun to make! Of course using the new 'Floral basic shaping mold' was a bonus....you got to get them! They save so, so much time...and what about the hands!....Yes thats right.....no more pain!
Now sit back, view and enjoy the ride...
