Heartfelt Creations - Lily Slimline Gateway

 Hi and welcome!

Today we're debuting the beautiful Slim Decorative Rectangle Dies!

I've used the gorgeous Slim Gateway Rectangle Die along with the Garden Lily to create my first card with this launch. 







Instructions: Card size is 4 x 9”. Score and fold 8 1/2 x 9 1/2” white cardstock at 4 1/2”, place the largest Slim Gateway Rectangle Die just over the fold and diecut to get a shaped card base. Using the same die, cut two more times. Trim the left side of one, stamp the ‘You are in our Thoughts & Prayers’ sentiment from the Cheerful Notes Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Cactus Flower ink and adhere to the inside of the card. Adhere the other diecut to the card front using dries clear adhesive. Using the decorative Slim Gateway Rectangle Die, cut from white cardstock, stamp the ‘In Sympathy’ sentiment using Cactus Flower ink, sponge with dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Add some shape to the gate using your fingers while it’s still wet. 

Stamp the floral spray from Garden Lily Spray & Fillers Stamp set on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using VersaColor white pigment ink, cover with Opaque Embossing Powder – White and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Color with Cactus Flower and Olive inks using Fantastix Blending Tools and diecut using the coordinating die. Diecut four more times, adhere behind the stamped image to create dimension, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere to the card base behind the gate using dries clear adhesive. 

Stamp the Garden Lilies on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using VersaColor white pigment ink, cover with Opaque Embossing Powder – White and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Color using Cactus Flower ink, diecut using the coordinating die and shape in the 3D Garden Lily Mold. At this point, I had forgotten to add some color to the backs of the flowers so I took a dauber and added some Cactus Flower ink to the embossed backs and got a really pretty effect. Adhere two petals of the same size together, offset, to create the lilies. Using the Groove Golf tool, pierce a hole in the flower centers, insert the Petite Pollen Stamens and secure with hot glue. I used the white stamens, sponged them with dries clear adhesive, dipped them in the Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter and added a dab of Cactus Flower ink to the tips. Stamp the Garden Lily leaves using Archival Olive ink, color using the same ink, diecut, add more ink to the edges and the back of the leaves and shape in the 3D Garden Lily Mold. 

Using a paint brush, brush the flowers and leaves with watered down dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card front as shown.
