Black Friday Special!!! ~ Poinsettia Elegance

Hi Friends,

I am super excited for today's BLACK FRIDAY release. You guys have asked for these and Heartfelt Creations has listened! We are debuting an entire collection of SLIM LINE dies. These are perfect for a quick and easy card or can be dressed to the max so they are perfect for everyone. Lets take a look....



Cut a piece of white card stock to 8 x 9” and score in half at 4”. Using the second largest die from the HCD3-7431 Slim Eyelet Rectangle Die cut the card base making sure the top cutting edge of the die just barely hangs over the fold line, so it preserves the fold. Next from sheet 5B of the HCDP1-2141 Holiday Star Paper Collection cut one from the same die as the card base and attach to the card base. From sheet 12 B use the second largest die from HCD3-7432 Slim Basic Rectangle Die to cut the next layer and using the HCDA1-449 Stack & Store Daubers ink the edges with Deep Purple Archival Ink. Using set HCD3-7433 Slim Lattice Oval Die, cut both the large and small dies once from white cardstock and once from Luxe Silver cardstock and layer the silver slightly offset behind the white. Once adhered together glue the layered rectangle to the dark purple rectangle and attach to the card base with 3D foam tape. For the sentiment, discard the Luxe Silver center oval piece and stamp the white oval with a sentiment from the HCPC-3993 Holiday Star Cling Stamp Set and glue down the 2 piece sentiment dies to the center of the card as shown.

Stamp the small poinsettia 3x onto white cardstock, and the large leaf 5x onto pale green paper (from the Festive Poinsettia Paper Collection) using the HCPC-3957 Large Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set; stamp the 2.5” poinsettia 2x onto white cardstock from the HCPC-3958 Small Festive Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set, using Versacolor White Pigment Ink and heat emboss using silver embossing powder. Color the flowers using daubers and Blue Violet and Deep Purple Archival Inks. Die cut and shape with coordinating dies and the 3D Mold. Finish the flowers by adding silver stamens from the Assorted Bead Stamens Medium. Add Dries clear glue to 3 deep purple HCS1-490 Rose Hip Stamens Large, using a Hydra Sponge, and dip/roll around in the container of Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear Glitter. Once dry adhere flowers, leaves, and stamens to the front of the card using hot glue. Finish the inside of the card as desired.

  I hope you enjoyed that as much as I enjoyed creating it for each of you! Check out my personal project in the Heartfelt Creations Gallery to find out what products I used for this project.
