Heartfelt Creations Celebrating the Season


Christmas in July is upon us and I love to make Christmas cards.  Today I am using my Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia Collection.  I began with a 6" x 6" burgundy card stock base. Find the DP paper with the fabulous candle and poinsettias on it.  This is one half of a 12" x 12" page; the candle is on the lower left and the sentiment is to the right of it.  Trim the candle section to 5 3/4" square. Trim just the sentiment banner out and back it with burgundy card stock.  Add to the card base as shown.  Add Glossy Accents to the candle and flame.


Now you could leave the card like this and it is beautiful but I wanted to add some dimension.  Stamp the smallest poinsettia from the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set three times with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Curious Cryogen metallic paper.  Die cut with the coordinating Sparkling Poinsettia Die.  Color with Copic markers; R46, R59, YR16.  Add shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit then using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive, adhere two petals to create each flower.  Add yellow Stickles to the flower centers.  Adhere the flowers around the base of the candle.


Finish the inside of the card with more DP and a sentiment panel from the paper collection.

So beautiful. I'd like to make 100 of these to send to family and friends. Like the way you've make the candle look so real out of paper. Edna B.

Love the look of your holiday card; gorgeous. Guess I should have picked up some paper when I was at Heartfelt's booth in Novi in May. Sure disappointed the Heirloom show has moved to Mt. Clemens; seems so far away.
