Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  It is officially winter here in Northern Indiana.  We got about 8" of snow last night.  It had rained yesterday afternoon and then all that water froze turning to ice and then we got all this very heavy wet snow.  Several trees and power lines came down, but luckily we always had power.  The kids had a 2 hour delay today from school and were excited about getting to sleep in.  It definitely is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!  Today I am sharing two card I made that have a Christmas / Winter theme.  Check out the other beautiful projects made by the other Design Team members on the Heartfelt Creations blog!

  • Scor-Pal
Cut one 4 ¼” x 4 ¼” piece of cardstock out of dark rose cardstock and one 4 ¼” x 8 ½” piece of brown cardstock.  Score the 4 ¼” x 8 ½” cardstock at the 4 1/4” and the 6 3/8” measurement lines on the Scor-Pal or other scoring tool.  Prefold all score lines.  First fold the card in half, then at the second score line (6 3/8”) fold the opposite direction.  Place the card on the table with the 4 ¼” side down.  Add double sided tape to the 2 1/8”  x 4 ¼” section cardstock facing up. Now attach the precut 4 ¼” x 4 ¼” piece of cardstock to the base, lining it up to make a perfect square.  This creates the easel card base.  Cut a piece of light rose card stock 4" x 4" and a piece of brown cardstock 3 3/4" x 3 3/4".  Take the brown cardstock 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square and with VersaMark Dazzle Champagne ink use the swirls stamp from the HCPC 3420 Holiday Dove PreCut Set and stamp several times. Mat brown cardstock on top of light rose cardstock and mat both on top of dark rose cardstock.  Next, color dove with Copics on Cryogen White cardstock and then cut out with HCD 715 Christmas Cheer Die.  Add Ranger Liquid Pearls to center of flowers and let dry.  With Spellbinders dies cut out oval in Cryogen White and appropriate scalloped oval from dark rose cardstock.  Stamp sentiment from HCPC 3421 Dove of Peace Precut Set on Cryogen White and then distress edges with Ranger Distress Ink - Old Paper.  Cut a piece of patterned paper cardstock 4 1/4" x 2 1/2" and attach to base of easel card.  On top of that with pop dots attach sentiment.  I use 2 layers of pop dots to make it stand up higher since this is what makes the easel card stand up.  Then with pop dots attach dove to front of card on brown cardstock.

Adhere tree to front of card with pop dots.  Put twine in holes of button and tie knot.  Adhere button with pop dot at top of the tree.

Heartfelt Creations

Today on the Heartfelt Creations blog are two more of my projects that I submitted for the Finalist round of the Design Team. 

The first projects is a gift card holder that is made out of an A2 envelop.  I learned how to make this from Dionne who teaches Copics Club classes at the scrapbook store More Memories in New Paris, IN, my hometown.

Inside View

  • Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations Scenic Combo (HCPC 3355), Hydrangea/Posy Branch Set (HCPC 3301)
  • Spellbinders:    Classic Ovals, Labels 10
  • Paper:    A2 Envelop, Cryogen White, Bazzill, K&Co

  • Embellishments:     Ribbon, Twine, Brad

To make gift card holder take an A2 envelope and score the envelop in half and cut the flap in half.  Glue down the left side.  The right side is the pocket for the gift card.  Distress edges (including center) with Ranger Distress Ink – Old Paper.  Add score tape across the front of the envelope and attach a piece of ribbon to close the gift card holder.  Cut 3 pieces of paper 4” x 2 ¾” (test cut one piece and check size).  Use patterned paper or matte several layers of paper as desired.  Cut to size the panel that will go on the gift card pouch and then punch a half circle on that panel.  This will make it easier to remove the gift card.  Make a flap to fit, tapering the edges and attach to envelop flap.  Attach all panels and add brad to flap.  Make hole in gift card panel and pull a piece of twine through the hole, knotting it inside the pouch.  On Cryogen White paper stamp the mountain scene. Color with Copics and then cut out scene into a 4” x 2 ½” rectangle.  With distressing tool, distress edges and then with Ranger Distress Ink – Old Paper, distress edges with ink.  Attach colored mountain scene to front of gift card holder with double sided foam tape.  On Cryogen White paper stamp sentiment from Hydrangea/Posy Branch set on oval cut out from Spellbinders and distress edges with Ranger Distress Ink – Old Paper.  Out of Brown paper cut coordinating Spellbinder Label 10.  Attach to inside of card holder.  Insert gift card or money and use outside ribbon to tie card closed.

My second project I am sharing today is a pop up card that folds flat for mailing.  The picture really doesn't do this card justice.  It is much more stunning in real life - I wish everyone could see it in person!  I even added clear cardstock in between the window frames to make it look like there is glass in the window.
