Heartfelt Creations - Christmas Eve

Hi and welcome back! 

It's heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday and today I have a card I created for the release of the fabulous 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!
