It's a wonderful summer day here in Washington State, and an even better day on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, as we celebrate a new release. Hop on over and take a peak! The new release is called the Merry and Bright Collection and is perfect for adding a little nostalgia to all of your Christmas projects.
Do you have a friend or relative that tells you every time they see you that they love your cards, that they still have the card you gave them six months ago on their mantel? Maybe you have someone you want to cheer up in the hospital or resthome, this is the perfect project for those special people. I also think this is one of my favorite cards I've created, it brought so much joy to create this sweet Christmas scene!
The card was made with a full sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded in half. The shadowbox was created with the 6x6 Foldout Cards - White. The designer paper from the Merry & Bright Paper Collection with the pink house was used for the background of the shadowbox and pieces of the fence paper from the same pad were used for the card base.
Poinsettias were stamped with the Sparkling Poinsettia and Poinsettia & Holly Clusters in Lilac Posies, the centers were sponged with Fern Green, the holly leaves from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia and the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters sets were stamped in Fern Green and sponged in the same color. All of the images were cut out with their matching dies, this saves so much time! Purple stamens were added to the large poinsettias and green prills to the centers of the small ones, and of course, lots of glitter was added!
All of the images were stamped in Archival Black and colored with Copic markers.
Here's a side view of the shadowbox, you can see the layered scene inside.
