Heartfelt Creations Four Fold Cardinal Card....

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!  It is hotter than blue blazes here in East Tennessee and it has been a joy to work on Christmas cards using the Festive Holly Collection!  This morning I'm showing you a four fold card I made using the papers, stamps and dies from this collection!  It really is a quick and easy card when you use their products and I actually found I had a harder time taking photos of the card than in the making of it.





Products Used:
HCDP1-280 Festive Holly Paper Collection
HCPC- 3791 Festive Holly and Cardinals Cling Stamps
HCD1-7145 Festive Holly and Cardinals Die
HCPC-3792 Festive Holiday Cling Stamps

#85 Crystal Art Glitter
#159723 Designer Dries Clear Glue

Other Supplies: Dandelion Memento Ink, White Cardstock, Pumice Stone Distress Ink, Lace, Bling on a String, Score-Tape, Dimensional Tape, Hot Glue Gun, Cotton Ball

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 X 6 1/4.  To make the card base start with a piece of cardstock 11 1/2 X 5 1/2 and another piece of cardstock measuring 2 3/4 X 4 1/4.  Start with the larger piece and score on the long side at 1/4 - 3 3/4  - 7 1/4.  Turn and score at 5/8 down to the last score line and cut away.  Next glue the 2 ¾ X 4 1/4 to the 1/4 score line and then cut away the bit of scored cardstock above the glued on cardstock.  This makes the base of your card.  There are many of these listed on Pinterest so if you are a visual learner like me that might be the way to go.  Next I covered the panels with different pieces of cardstock and some of the paper collection creating layers.  The papers are so beautiful and just really put me into the Christmas spirit!  On the back panel I used Score-Tape to adhere a piece of lace to the bottom of the panel and then glued one of the pretty card fronts on top of that.  I hot glued the Bling on a String and then stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Next die cut the pretty top piece and glue it to the top of the panel.  Moving to the next panel I used the cotton ball and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and laid down a layer of color in the center of the panel.  Use a light hand as it is easier to add more but once it is down you can’t take it back; so slow and easy here.  Stamp the lamp and the holly using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and die cut the images.  I used the Dove Blender Pen and the different inks to color these two pieces.  Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the panel using Tuxedo Black Ink.  I used dimensional tape to pop up the image so it has a bit of dimension.  I also added some glitter here and there just for a bit of interest, after all it is the season!  The rest of the panels are just covered with pieces of the pretty paper collection with a bit of glitter added.  On the front panel I used the Crystal Clear.  The card is now finished.  Folded flat it can mail and extended out, it makes a beautiful decorator piece.  I hope you try this card for one of your Christmas cards this year.

I love this design and will probably be using it again soon.  I'm also getting a jump on my Christmas cards and am very happy to be able to set them aside until I need them.  If you would like a bit more inspiration just follow this link over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog and see what the other designers have done this week!

Instructions:  My card size is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2.  You can find instructions for these flip cards on Youtube and Pinterest with dimensions as well.  Make your card base and then cover the panels with pieces of the paper collection.  I used the Spellbinders dies to cut out the circles for the front and back swing panels.  Glue these down.  Next I stamped the cardinals, the wedding bells and the sleigh bells using black Memento ink.  Cut out the images using the coordinating dies.  I used the Dove Blender Pen and Memento and Distress Inks to color the images.  I added Frosting Powder to the limbs behind the cardinals and used a heat gun to set this and it turned white with the heat.  I added glitter to the bells and holly and set them aside to dry.  When dry add the cardinals and the bells to the center circles.  Next I used the sponge and added glue and then dabbed it over the front and back panels then I added the Crystal Clear to that to give a bit more interest to the card.  After I colored the Sleigh Bells I added dimensional tape to the back of the bells and adhered them to the front.  Then I used dimensional tape to the whole image and adhered it to the card front.  Glue down Medallion and then hot glue the string of pearls to the edge. Next I used the tags die to cut out one of the tags from the paper collection and using the dimensional tape I glued it to the front circle.  The card is ready. 

I had so much fun creating this card just for you!  I hope I have inspired you to want to get a jump on your Christmas cards.  For more inspiration, you can visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog and see what the other designers have made for you!  I know you will see many creations that you will want to make for your own!

You can watch a video on how to make the Classic Rose here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/129/how-to-create-dimensional-roses

My card size is 5 1/2 X 5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Hot glue a piece of white lace along the bottom of the card.  Stamp, cut out, color and shape the roses.  Use the Frosting Powder on the edges of the petals for a very encrusted look.  Next I stamped, cut out and colored the dove and added Crystal Clear to the doves plumes.  I used a piece of the dimensional tape to attach it to the bottom of the card. I used some glue on a sponge and dabbed around the edges of my card and then used the Frosting Powder to add some interest to the card.   Next stamp and cut out the Classic Wedding Roses stamp and use the dove blender pen to color using Memento inks.  Glue it to the front of the card and then glue your roses around the die cut. Your card is ready to go.


Next is the little album for the bride and it has tags tucked away inside for the bride to write thoughts about her big day.

You can watch a video on how to make the Classic Rose here:  https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/video/129/how-to-create-dimensional-roses

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4  X  5 1/2.  Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection.  Cut out the medallion and glue it to the bottom of the card front.  Next stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut out using the Spellbinders die; use dimensional tape to adhere to the top of the card letting part of the sentiment lay above the card fold.  Next stamp, cut out and color the rose petals and leaves using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.  Shape the leaves and set aside.  When you finish making the rose use glue and the Frosting Powder on the edges of the flower petals.  This product is so unusual in that you can add a little heat and allow it to remain sort of clear as I have done on this card or you can heat a little more and it will go more white.  I think it just gives a very classy look to the roses!  Now place the leaves and the rose over the medallion and glue them down and your card is finished. 

Thanks for sticking with me until the end, I know this has been a long post.  Now if you would like you to go to the Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiration from the other design team members!
