Heartfelt Creations Floral Frame Collection

Hi Friends,

This month over at Heartfelt Creation's They have released this amazing brand new collection called "The Floral Frames Collection. It has a selection of 3 beautifully designed frames and multiple floral choices for your designing splendor. Along with a beautiful colorful paper collection. Lets take a closer look by looking at my first card from this collection.


With this card I decided to use the Floral Frames paper pad to determine my color scheme. I have always thought that mint greens and pinks went well together so I chose a couple pieces of coordinating papers and began designing. 


For the base of this card I have cut 3 base layers using the Heartfelt Creation's Fancy Classic Frame Die. One from Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper (white) and 2 from patterned paper. One piece of patterned paper (a more solid piece of light green) was glued to the white and this double layered piece was scored across the top at about the 1/2" mark. This will be your card back/inside of your card. To finish the inside of the card you can cut a piece of white card stock using the second smallest die from the same frame die set and glue to the green side of this back/inside piece and set aside. 

The other remaining base piece cut from the Fancy Classic Frame Die will be your card front. I have chosen the patterned side of the paper to face forward. Next cut 2 of the second largest die from this same frame set, one in Luxe Silver Card stock and one in white. Glue these together using your dries clear glue and off set them just slightly so the silver peeks out behind the white top layer. Then attach this layer to your card top. 

Next stamp your Curvy Floral Frame using Archival ink in Library Green. Die cut using the coordinating die. Find this same frame in the paper collection where it frames the thatched cottage and carefully die cut that image from the paper out as well making sure to save all the little pieces. Also cut the frame again using Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper to use as a base. Now you will layer these all together using dries clear glue to strengthen the layers together. White as base, frame, then inset the die cut pieces from the paper pack. Use foam pads to attach the frame to the front of your card.


Stamp Flowers from the Floral Frames Collection in Archival Magenta Hue for main flower and softly sponge in same color before die cutting. Once die cut ink just one side of each petal with the Archival Magenta Hue ink with your sponge dauber to darken the tip of one side for added interest. Shape using your stylus and molding mat and add stamens from the Bridal Bouquet and then add Crystal Clear Glitter. For smaller flowers are from the Classic Rose stamp and die and shaped using the 3D Mold. These were stamped in Archival Vivid Chartreuse and not colored. 

Leaves with the curly ends came from the Floral Frames Collection and were colored using the Archival Ink in Vivid Chartreuse and Garden Patina. These were hand shaped. The other leaves are from the Leafy Accents Stamps and Dies and were shaped using the Leafy Accents 3D Mold. They are colored with Archival inks in Library Green and Leaf Green.

For the sentiment the "For My Friend" Stamp and Die from the Floral Frame Collection was stamped in Archival Magenta Hue ink and die cut. It was then added onto a banner cut from the Arrows ans Banner die set which was inked with Library Green Archival ink. Front panel was then glued onto the back panel along the top 1/2" section that was previously scored.
