Heartfelt Creations Celebrate the Season Cards

Today is Heartfelt Creations day and I want to share three cards I made using the newly released Celebrate the Season collection.  Each card begins with an A2 card base, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when folded.  There are many panels in the paper collection that will fit wonderfully on this card base.  By adding sentiment panels and a bit of color you can quickly create a beautiful holiday card.

Find the panel with the snowflakes and garden gate.  Trim down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the teal A2 card base.  Find the light blue snowflake paper, stamp Merry Christmas with Versacolor black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Color the holly with Copic G40 and RV66.  Trim and mount onto a teal card stock panel.  (Rather than using dimensional foam, I used chipboard behind my sentiment panels.  It makes them sturdier and gives a more professional look.)

Trim a piece of the mauve snowflake paper down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the white A2 card base.  Find the panel with the circle and poinsettias.  Trim just outside the mauve border as shown and mount onto white card stock.  Using Memento Tuxedo black ink, stamp 2 large poinsettias and 1 small as well as the mittens, then die cut with the coordinating dies.  Color the flowers with Copic V12 then crease down the center of each petal with the smallest nib in your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Pinch the petals together, then stack the flowers as shown.  Add gold glitter glue to the flower centers.  Color the mittens with Copic V12 and V15, adding Silver Gelly Roll to the snowflake pattern.  Adhere the mittens and poinsettia to the card with Art Institute Dries Clear Glue.  Trim out the Happy Holidays Ticket, add chipboard to the back and mount to the card.

Trim a piece of the blue snowflake paper down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mount to the purple A2 card base.  Find the panel with the oval and poinsettias and trim off the outer edge.  Mount this to purple card stock then center on the card base.  Cut out the Merry Christmas sentiment from the paper collection, mount on purple card stock, add chipboard and mount on the card.

What a beautiful array of Christmas cards and I love the non-traditional colors too! I should try to break away more and do more in that style too of non-traditional.
