HCPC 3622 – O Little Town PreCut Set
HCPC 3625 – Festive Notes PreCut Set
HCD 734 – Sun Kissed Fleur Die

Labels 4

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Velum, Pearls, Distressed Ink, Ribbon and bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by making a 5″ x 7″ card out of White card stock and cover the front in a slightly smaller piece of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection.  Center the largest die from the Gold Majesty Circles die set and cut through both the layers on the front of the card.  To make the frame, I cut the same die out of another piece of White card stock and then fussy cut around the outside of the die cut.  To make the window, using Versamark, stamp and heat emboss the Festive Notes PreCut Set on a piece of Velum and attach it to the inside of the front of the card.  Once your window is complete, stamp and color the ornament from the O Little Town PreCut Set and fasten it to the center of the card.  Build your flowers using the Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set and the Sun Kissed Fleur Die and decorate the card as desired.

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

3D Tree Gift Box

3D Tree Gift Box

Hi everyone and thanks for popping by today.  I am happy to be here with another project for Heartfelt Creations featuring the new Festive Christmas Collection!

I had so much fun making the gift box for you last week I decided to try my hand at making another one for you this week 🙂   This time instead of in the shape of a star it is a 3D Christmas Tree!

Products Used:

HCPC 3415 – Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCD 739 – Banner and Trees Die
HCDP1 246 – Festive Christmas Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Bright Ideas Prills
Layered Poinsettia Shapeabilities

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Green Card Stock, Glitter Card Stock, Distressed Ink, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting 6 of your favorite die cuts from the Banner and Trees Die set.  I used the one with the flowers on it.  Next I found an outline of a tree that I liked and I sized it to allow the die cut to fit on the inside allowing 1/2 on each side for folds to join the pieces together.   I added a layer of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection before adding the die cut on each side.  Stamp, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set stamps and finish them off in the center with some Bright Ideas Prills and some sparkly gemstones!

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