A Woodsy Father’s Day Card

A Woodsy Father’s Day Card

Hi everyone!

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations new release Wednesday!

Take an adventure on the path less traveled and lose yourself in an enchanting woodsy wonderland filled with magnificent wildlife, beautiful scenic expanses and delicate field flowers.
Heartfelt Creations invites you to explore the new Woodsy Wonderland Collection. Step softly as to not spook the peaceful inhabitants or trample the native wildflowers as you set about exploring your surroundings. Immerse yourself in a stunning paper collection showcasing a beautiful outdoor themed color palette of rushing river blues, orange and yellow sunset hues, grass like greens accented with the softest wildflower whites, deep purples, and posy pinks, pulled together and grounded with dark tree bark browns, sky blues and moss like greens. Discover charming cottages, babbling brooks, and grassy fields boasting home to majestic deer, chattering squirrels, prancing skunks and frolicking foxes. Bold stripes and crosshatch patterns will remind you of trampled wildlife trails, creating eye catching backgrounds for the tiny woodland creatures depicted on the varying sizes of premade card panels or within the three extremely detailed and realistic forest themed cling stamp sets which provide the ideal elements for creating your very own woodsy wonderland on your next paper crafting project. Pair with the coordinating dies to create dimensional forest scenes laden with fallen tree stumps, grassy knolls, darting rabbits, scampering raccoons, decorative butterflies and song filled birds all at play in majestically treed forests! So, breathe deeply, exhale and allow the beauty of our enchanting woodlands to bring a sense of wonder, calm and peace to your soul as you craft your cares and worries away in the tranquility of our Woodsy Wonderland Collection.

Instructions:

This card measures approx 5″ x 7″ by 3/4″ thick.  To create this card, start by cutting a piece of purple card stock 10 3/4″ x 7″ and scor 5″ in from each side.  The frames were cut using my electronic cutting machine and measure 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ on the outside and 5 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside opening.  The inside was made by starting with a scene cut from the Woodsy Wonderland Paper Collection measuring 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and then placing 3D Foam dots around the edge and layering on a frame.  You can add elements to each frame and when completed you will have a 3D scene!  I used 4 layers for the frames but you can use as many as you desire.  Simply adjust the size of the fold for the cover. All of the images were stamped on white card stock using Expresso Truffle and and cut with the matching die before coloring with Derwent water color pencils and placed as shown. The Classic Rose flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Lilac Posies and cut with the matching die.  They were distressed with Berrylicious Ink before shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  The finishing touch was to brush all the images with Wink of Stella Clear for a little extra sparkle!

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

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.
