Happy New Year everyone. I have so enjoyed spending some time with my family and boys during this holidays season but I have to admit I'm ready to get back on a normal schedule including my blog...so next week things should be back to normal. Whew.
Today's card is one I created for Heartfelt Creations and as always I love the way everything Heartfelt comes together from the stamping, dies and even the paper. It makes crafting so easy. .
Please see below all the supplies I used for this project and also directions if you would like to make your own.
I hope everyone is showered with blessings in 2014 and I'll see you next week.

Instructions: Cut solid designer paper 6 x 6". Cut designer paper panel 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" and mount to the base. Adorn the edges with the pearl stips. Cut smaller square designer paper and mount on same color solid designer paper and mount in the center with foam tape.

Line the edge with the pearls and mount to the side as shown with foam tape. Stamp multiple sizes of the four smallest stamps from the vintage floret. Cut out with matching dies. I cut 16 different petals to acheive the flowers I made. Using pan pastels use a dark purple in the center of the flower and the edges with a soft pink. Once all the petals are colored ink the edges and lightly over the top of all petals with distress ink in vintage photo color. Use the McGill tools to cup the petals and stack as show to create the flowers. You can also fold with your fingers each petal once you have cupped with the McGill tools to add a bit more movement to your flowers. Stamp the leaf flourish from Beautiful You and cut out with matching die. Use two shades of green pan pastels and color yourleaves. Make your edges a darker green and have a lighter green for the centers. Once colored ink the edges with the vintage photo ink. Cup your leaves with the McGill tools and attach in the right lower corner of you card. Add your finished flowers as shown to finish the card.
