Project Instructions:

Other products:  Off-White Card Stock, Purple Card Stock, Distressed Inks (Brushed Corduory, Forest Moss), Voilet Embossing Powder, Stampendous Micro Glitter (Purple and Lavender), Versamark, Quickie Glue Pen, Ribbon, Pearls, Bling and Lace from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting creating a 5″ x 7″ card out of Off-White card stock.  Next cut several more layers of paper using the paper you desire making each layer 1/4″ smaller on both cut lines.  My card is a total of 4 layers but you can have as many layers as you desire.  After all your layers are cut, using the Timeless Amour Die, cut the larger heart twice.   Once in Purple and the other in a piece of matching patterned paper.  The smaller heart was a shape that I cut using my Cameo.  Add some lace and bling topping it off with the largest flourish from the Bella Rose Die.   Next, stamp, die-cut and distress those lovely Botanical Rose’s and finish the card off with a few butterfly’s that are embossed with gold embossing powder are decorated using Micro Glitter.

Thanks again for popping by today.  I hope you enjoy this new collection from Heartfelt Creations as much as I do.  Be sure to check out all of the inspiration on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today, you will be glad you did!

Have a wonderful day!
