Heartfelt Creations

I have been busy working on holiday projects for Heartfelt Creations.  I can't believe Christmas is around the corner.  I still have a lot to do around the house to get ready, but I am looking forward to time with family and friends over the holidays.

The first card I am sharing this week  for me is pretty simple since I didn't take the time to do any of my usual shading and coloring with Copics.  I haven't done much embossing, but I think I may start doing more because it was really fun and easy!

Instructions:
Card Size 5" x 7"
Start with a 7" x 10" piece of cream cardstock and score at the 5" mark to create a 5" x 7" card base.  Next with Old Paper Distress Ink stamp the corner flourish from HCPC 3436 Rye Grass Flourish PreCut Set in each corner.  Out of blue Bazzill Bling paper cut the Decorative Window Die and out of the dark blue Bazzill Bling paper cut the rectangular tag from the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three.  Next on white Bazzill paper with clear embossing ink stamp the large Christmas tree from the HCPC 3432 Magnificent Spruce Trees PreCut Set and use gold embossing powder.  Heat set.  Then spray with Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist and heat set again.  Carefully cut tree out so white paper does not show beyond edge of inside frame of window frame die securing with 1/8" Scor-Tape as needed.  Adhere window frame to card front with Dries Clear Adhesive.  Apply navy blue Candi to top corners with pop dots.  Then with clear embossing ink stamp the "Oh holy night" sentiment from HCPC 3430 Shepherd Scene PreCut Set on white cardstock and use gold embossing powder.  Heat set.  Use a straight edge trimmer and cut to fit the tag and adhere to tag.  Next with adhesive apply gold ribbon and then the tag onto the bottom portion of the card.

The next project I did this week involved an angel I had around the house.  I added a few embellishments to her and created a music themed tag with Heartfelt Creation Products and created a beautiful gift idea.  I am entering my Silent Night Angel with Tag this week in the Our Craft Lounge Challenge #96 - Handmade Holiday .
