Heartfelt Creations - Swinging Ornament

 Hi and welcome to my last post as a Heartfelt Creations Design Team member. 

My journey with Heartfelt Creations over the last 6 or 7 years (I lost count) has been one of the most treasured journeys of my life. I still pinch myself in disbelief that they chose me to go on this wondrous odyssey with them. It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of this crafting family and I am eternally grateful to everyone at Heartfelt Creations. They have always made me feel like a family member, both on the Design Team and in the job I did for them behind the scenes. 

It is with a heavy heart that I say farewell to Heartfelt Creations but I will always treasure my memories here. I wish everyone at HC much success and happiness on their new journeys. You have all Blessed my life!!!

My card today is created using the beautiful Holiday Ornament Collection! I still can't believe that this is the last collection they will be releasing. How lucky are we though that we have so many of their collections to create with over the coming years. The collections are timeless and I know that I will create with them eternally. 

Instructions: Card size is 6 x 6”. Score and fold 12 x 6” Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper at 6” on the long side to create a tent fold card base. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 2x to 5 7/8 x 5 7/8”. Cut sheets 8B (green) and sheet 11A (plaid) to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4” and ink the edges using Archival English Ivy ink. Trim the card front from sheet 1A to 5 1/8 x 5 1/8” and ink the edges using Vermillion ink. Using removable tape, adhere a gold mat layer, the green layer and the 5 1/8 square layer to the card front. Using the largest Circle Basics Large Die, diecut the circle from the center of the card front to create an aperture. It won’t cut through all the layers at once but the die will leave a nice impression so you can go back and cut through whatever layers didn’t cut the first time. Using the largest Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die and the second largest Circle Basics Large Die, cut a border from Luxe Gold cardstock.

Stamp the ornament from the Noel Holiday Ornaments Cling Stamp Set on Luxe gold cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing glitter and heat set using the Heat it tool. Diecut using the coordinating die and diecut a second time from Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Adhere the layers together, add a gold cord to the top and adhere to the card front with hot glue in the center of the aperture. Adhere the gold, green and card front layers together and adhere to the card front. Adhere the eyelet gold border. Adhere the other gold layer behind the plaid layer and adhere to the inside of the card.

Stamp the Small and Large Festive Poinsettias on red cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set. Diecut using the coordinating dies and shape in the coordinating molds. Use the stylus to press down in the flower centers, offset two flowers and adhere together using hot glue to create two small and one medium flowers. Add a little hot glue to the flower centers add cover with Gold Gala Glitz. Stamp the image from the Holly Berry Cling Stamp set 2x on Luxe gold cardstock, cover with the WOW Embossing Glitter, heat set and diecut using the coordinating die. Use the deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to add shape to diecuts. Adhere the flowers and holly berry diecuts to the bottom left of the card front.

Stamp the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the Christmas Lantern Cling Stamp set on Luxe gold cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing glitter and heat set using the Heat it tool. Diecut using the coordinating die and then diecut 3 more times and adhere the layers together to create dimension. Adhere to the top of the card using dries clear adhesive.
