Inside Explosion Card

Hi everyone and welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

I am thrilled and excited to be showing you a new Fancy Fold!  I call this an Inside Explosion card.  I hope you like it.  Here is the front of the card:


and, of course, a closer look at the flowers


and finally what the inside looks like.



Products Used:

HCPC 3494 – Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCPC 3500 – Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set
HCPC 3502 – Mini Vintage Floret PreCut Set
HCD 726 – Delicate Asters Die
HCD 727 – Vintage Floret Die
HCD 728 – Timeless Amour Die
HCDP1 228 – Timeless Amour Paper Collection

Project Instructions:

Other products: Lace from my stash and Bling from my dear friend Judy, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.


Start by making a 6″ x 6″ card out of a piece of DP from the Timeless Amour Paper Collection and then cut another 6″ x 6″ piece of coordinating DP for the inside.  Scor the 6″ x 6″ piece down the middle and then from corner to corner for a total of 3 scor lines.  Attach the 2 pieces of DP together and then decorate as desired.  For the flowers on the inside I kept them flat so the card can close and for the flowers on the front I stamped, distressed and die cut using the lovely Vintage Floret die and stamps.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
