Christmas Blessings Center Step Card

Hi everyone!  Welcome back for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday inspiration!  Today we are debuting the lovely new Winter’s Eve Collection!

Celebrate the more simple side of the holiday season, and add a touch of nostalgia and wonder to all of your holiday themed greeting cards, scrapbook layouts and altered art pieces with the new Winter’s Eve Collection by Heartfelt Creations. Reminisce Christmas blessings from years gone by with a tranquil collection featuring an array of illustrations bringing back memories of silent nights by candlelight, choir voices resonating from the little church in the wildwood, woodland creatures foraging for food beneath the glistening snow, windows illuminated with the soft glow of a warming fireplace, and beautifully decorated Christmas trees ready to engage the imagination and excitement of little boys and girls eager to see what lies beneath them on Christmas morning! A charming and peaceful paper collection delivering a color palette of icy blues, pine greens, poinsettia pinks, berry reds and frosty whites filled with decorative elements including delicate swirls, subtle checks, bold stripes, dainty florals and lace like accents will whisk you away to a peaceful winter wonderland overwhelming your heart with the comfort and joy of the season! Three wintry themed cling stamp sets along with coordinating dies bring a further touch of simplicity to the season with bouquets of petite flowers and foliage, an old fashioned sled and a window frame with dimensional box ideal for creating warm and inviting scenes featuring a beautifully illustrated candle arrangement, Christmas tree or glowing fireplace. Three intricate and ornamental dies lend themselves beautifully to creating breathtaking decorative die cuts for accenting all of your winter wishes. Come along with us as we set the scene for a tranquil winter’s eve and a happy holiday season!

Start by creating your Center step card out of white card stock with panels from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection.  For a tutorial on how to make a Center Step card click here.  The image of the little girl looking at the Christmas tree inside the window was stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink and colored with Pebbles Metallic Cream Chalks before accenting with a quickie glue pen and a combination of Ice Blue and Pink glitter.  The Window was stamped on White card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Blue Tinsel Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching dies.  Die cut the window box out of white card stock and then stamp the Christmas Blessings sentiment directly on the already die cut window box using Versamark and heat embossed with Blue Tinsel Embossing Powder.  The Poinsettia flowers were stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Pearlescent Coral and shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and accenting with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear.  The Leaves were stamped on White card stock using Northern Pine and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Peeled paint and shaping with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  The sleigh and branches were stamped on white card stock using Rich Cocoa and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Walnut Stain for the branches and a combination of Walnut Stain, Salty Ocean and Lipstick Red inks for the sleigh.  Finally a bit of Snow Writer was added for some dimension as shown.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!
