HEARTFELT CREATIONS ALUMNI DESIGN TEAM - AUGUST BLOG HOP

Today is the last Tuesday of the month and that means it is time for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Monthly Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Vicki Dutcher's Blog.

I have designed a Christmas card featuring Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3491 - Holiday Haven PreCut Set
 
 


I used Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3499 - Decorative Metal Fixtures PreCut Set and coordinating die for the post that the birdhouse is sitting on.  I also used HCPC 3477 - Bird Haven PreCut Set HCPC 3480 - Brookside Manor PreCut Set and HCPC 3415 - Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set and their coordinating dies to create beautiful layers on this card.

 


The designers participating this month are:

Candy Slabaugh (that's me!)
