Heartfelt Creations ~ Summer Garden Zinnia

 Hi Friends,

Welcome back! Today I have a card I am very proud of. I am featuring Heartfelt Creations products and really enjoyed working with this color scheme.

 For my card today I have designed a 5x7" standard fold card with a garden lattice vibe. This card really makes me happy!!! I love the trailing vine of lush lilacs just behind the fully in bloom Zinnia.

DESIGNERS TIP: When shaping my Zinnia I put the flowers in my mold with the stamp side up because I wanted my petals to turn up. That is a good tip when using the Heartfelt Creations molds. Usually if you want your petals to curl down (as the traditional Zinnia does) then you will place your flower stamp image down. But of you want them to curl up do stamp side up. That helps me remember it. I hope this helps you too!

I hope my card has brightened your day as much as it did for me when creating it. Enjoy your craft and you will have something to smile about each and every day.

Hugs! Melanie
