Double Lever Card

Double Lever Card

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Wednesday!  I am excited to my project today featuring the new Heartfelt Creations Sparking Poinsettia Collection.  I have wanted to make a lever card for a while now but wanted to do something different with it so I decided to turn this into a double lever card!

Rediscover the majesty, serenity and pageantry of Christmas with Heartfelt Creations’ Sparkling Poinsettia Collection.  This glorious ensemble of stamps, dies and papers captures the stately splendor of Christmas with a regal color palette of burgundy, evergreen, taupe and cream.  Radiant poinsettias take center stage amidst a host of traditional Nativity scenes, twinkling candles, drifting snowflakes, lacy flourishes, exuberant banners and Heartfelt  greetings that are worthy of the King of Kings.  Six detailed stamp sets echo the glorious images found in the paper collection and two coordinating die sets can be used to create sparkling poinsettias that will never wilt or fade.  Chronicle sweet memories of the season, share holiday joy with family and friends, hail the holy babe born in the manger and deck the halls with Sparkling Poinsettia!


and here is a closer look at the new Sparkling Poinsettia flowers!  They definitely take poinsettia flowers to a whole new level!

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.
