wednesday...Heartfelt Creations

Happy Wednesday! I'm here with another project for Heartfelt Creations featuring their newest collection, the Delicate Asters Collection, and the new coordinating paper pack!

For today's project I decided to make a card:

Heartfelt Creations:
HCPC 3494 Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCPC 3495 Bold Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCPC 3497 Script Aster Background PreCut Set
HCD 718 Decorative Chateau Gate Die
HCD 726 Delicate Asters Die
HCDP1 226 Delicate Asters Paper Collection
452255 Grand Calibur

Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Forrest Moss, Vintage Photo), StazOn Archival Ink (Timber Brown), Recollections White Pearls, Rangers Liquid Pearls (White Opal), Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool, purple ribbon

I had a lot of fun working on this card! For the flowers, I stamped the bold flowers with Antique Linen (distress ink) on white cardstock and then went over it with brown archival ink with the delicate asters.  I used one of each size and then layered them, staggering the petals. I finished the flower with a large white pearl.

I distressed and machine stitched the background. I stamped the sentiment on a journaling card and matted it with two decorative black windows. I finished it off by adding some purple ribbon and liquid pearl dots.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
Fold a 11”x8.5” sheet of brown cardstock in half and cut at 6.25”. Cut out a 4”x6” piece of paper and distress the edges with the Tim Holtz Distresser tool. Machine stitch and ink the edges and adhere onto the brown cardstock. Add a purple ribbon around the bottom side of the pattern paper and add a bow to the left bottom corner. Die cut two gates from the Decorative Chateau Gate Die in black and adhere them facing each other unto the background paper and over the ribbon. Stamp the sentiment on a journaling rectangle with brown archival ink and adhere over the black gates, framing the sentiment. Stamp one of each of the bold flowers with Antique Linen on white cardstock and then with brown archival ink with the Delicate Asters right over the stamped image. Die cut with the coordinating die. Using a stylus, shape the flowers and nest them inside each other to form a larger bloom. Add a pearl to the center and adhere on the left corner of the sentiment. Stamp and die cut two leaves from the Bold Delicate Asters set and add to the right of the flower. Finally, add tiny liquid pearl drops to the black frame and the sentiment block.
