wednesday...Heartfelt Creations

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family and loved one! I sure did! (layouts featuring these pictures to follow...). Today is Wednesday which means I get to share with you another Heartfelt Craetions projects and today, I have a Christmas/Winter card.

Remember that this month Heartfelt Creations will be featuring projects using stamps that will be retiring by the end of this year. Click here to see a list of all the stamps that will be retiring by the end of the year. If you like any of these stamps, order them NOW before they are gone forever!

I used the Aztec Gold Sunflowers 2 Precut Set flowers stamps and turned them into Christmas flowers. These  'sunflowers' are so versatile! I just stamped the flowers on red cardstock and added gold stickles to the edges. I cut in between the petals a little but and folded each petal upwards to make them 3D.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Cut red cardstock base to 6”x12”, score at 6” and fold. Cut a 5”x5” panel from pattern paper, distress and ink the edges, and mat it with green cardstock and adhere in the center of the red card base. Stitch around the edges. Stamp the Magnificent Spruce Trees Precut Set 3 times on cream cardstock, overlapping them. Die cut, emboss and ink the embossed areas for dimension the Decorative Oval Window and place over the trees image. Trim the image to fit inside the frame and adhere in the center of the pattern paper. Stamp the smallest Book Frame 2 Precut Set and a sentiment inside it on cream cardstock. Fuzzy cut it, ink the edges and bend the sides of the book to make it more 3D. Stamp 2 small and 1 larger size flowers on red cardstock. Glimmer mist them to add shine, fuzzy cut them and layer 2 of them to make the larger bloom. Add gold stickles to all the edges and center of the flowers. Adhere them to the bottom left side of the image and place the book sentiment right above them. Stamp a few different size leaves from the Distressed Leaves Preset on green cardstock and fuzzy cut them. Shape them with your fingers and add to the cluster. Make a red bow and add to the right bottom corner.
