Heartfelt Creations - Bordering On A Celebration

Hi and welcome!

Beautifully ruffled in delicate layers and commonly gifted to express love, fascination, and distinction, the carnation flower is certainly recognizable and a floral garden and arrangement favorite. Thought to be one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world, the carnation is traditionally associated with the Mother’s Day holiday, but is also known to be a wonderful choice for birthdays, weddings and just because occasions. With an outstanding reputation as a cut flower, and an amazing array of colors and sizes, it is no wonder that the carnation flower remains so popular today! Heartfelt Creations invites you to celebrate the beauty and gentle humbleness of the carnation with the Camelia Carnation Collection! With a color palette of fiery reds, pastel pinks, sunset orange tones, and lush hues of greens, the gorgeous paper collection brings with it a bold but feminine feel. Filled with attractive carnations clusters, exquisite flower gardens, and decorative lace like details, this pretty paper collection is sure to become a perennial favorite. Two cling stamp sets and coordinating dies come together to create enamoring and realistic carnation blossoms with delicately illustrated details and varying sized petals ideal for assembling full sized carnation flowers to charming mini versions, while a third cling stamp set lends itself perfectly to layering and creating dimensional carnation clusters. So join with us as we celebrate and give recognition to the traditional, but somewhat overlooked and under praised carnation flower!

I'm so excited for the release of this gorgeous new Camelia Carnation Collection.
The carnation is one of my favorite flowers and it was so much fun creating this  card with these beautiful flowers!

Instructions: Score a 12” x 6” piece of white cardstock at 6” to create a 6” x 6” card base.  Cut a piece of peachy pink paper from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection, ink the edges with Coral Brilliance ink and adhere to the card base with dries clear adhesive.  Cut another piece of designer paper for the inside, ink the edges and adhere. 

Cut a decorative border in white from the Fleur border basics die set, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with crystal clear glitter. Cut a 3” x 6” piece of green paper from the collection, using the plain edge of the Fleur Border Basics die, cut a border to coordinate with the decorative border. Ink the edges with Mint ink. Adhere the decorative border to the green designer paper and adhere that to the card base.     

Cut the swirl die from the Cut Mat Create 2A die from white cardstock. Cut the decorative die from the Window Box Elements die from white cardstock. Sponge both with adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear. Adhere to the card base as shown. Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with Pearlescent Coral ink, diecut with the Small Oval die and ink the edges. Cut a piece of the green designer paper from the next size oval and ink the edges. Adhere the two ovals together and adhere to the Window Elements diecut.

Stamp the flowers on white cardstock with Pearlescent Coral Ink, lightly color the edges with the same ink, place in the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cutting machine. See Emma Lou’s video to create the carnation.  Stamp the leaves on white cardstock with Mint ColorBox ink, lightly color with Bamboo Leaves, ink the edges with Mint spritz with water and shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Sponge the flowers and leaves with dries clear adhesive, sprinkle with Crystal Clear, and adhere to the card as shown.
