Heartfelt Creations - Festive Christmas Accents

 Hi and welcome!

Today we're debuting the gorgeous Festive Christmas Collection. I just love all the little birdies in this one. 

Instructions: Card size is 5 x 7”. Score and fold 10 x 7” white cardstock at 5” on the long side to create card base. Cut Luxe Silver cardstock 2x at 4 7/8 x 6 7/8” and sheet 5B from the Festive Christmas Paper Collection 2x at 4 3/4 x 6 3/4”. Ink the edges of the designer papers with Archival Sky Blue ink. Adhere one Luxe Silver piece and one designer paper to the card front using removable tape. Using the plain oval from the Fancy Classic Oval Frame Die, cut an aperture in the card front. It will usually only cut through two of the layers but will leave a deep impression on the cardstock so you can remove the two mat layers, lay the die on the impression on the card base and run through the diecutting machine one more time. You will wind up with perfectly aligned layers to adhere permanently with dries clear adhesive. Adhere the second set of mat layers to the inside of the card. Using the third and fourth largest Fancy Classic Oval Frame Dies, cut from white cardstock and Luxe Silver cardstock. Adhere together slightly offset and adhere to the card front using dimensional dots.

Stamp the images from the Christmas Holly Accents Cling Stamp Set on watercolor paper using Archival Olive, Jet Black and Vermillion inks, Color using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers - Pale Green, Light Green, Carmine Red, Wine Red, Cornflower Blue, Yellow and Ochre and a water brush. Stamp the images with the birds two times, once in Olive and once in Jet Black. Color the leaves on the one stamped in Olive and color the birds on the one stamped in Jet Black. Diecut all images using the coordinating dies, diecut the images a second time from white cardstock one more time and adhere to the back of the stamped images. Diecut the birds four more times and adhere for dimension. Lightly shape the images using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and spritz with Sheer Shimmer Craft Spray – Sparkle. Adhere the images to the frame and the inside of the card as pictured using dimensional dots and hot glue.

Add some extra sparkle by randomly dabbing the images, the frame, the card front and the inside with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter.
