Birthday Love ~ Friendship Rose Collection #2

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to my blog for my second card featuring the Friendship Rose Collection. With this card I did a little something different and used an embossing folder from my stash and lightly inked the background to give these beautiful heart dies the showcasing they deserve. Aren't they gorgeous dies? Lets take a look...


Cut a piece of white card stock to 7 x 10” and score in half at 5”. Using sheet 8B from the HCDP1-2145 Friendship Rose Paper Collection, cut a piece measuring 5 x 7” With a Hydra Sponge apply Dries Clear Glue to the edges and sprinkle with Lion's Mane Ultra Fine Transparent Glitter, once dry, attach to the card base. Cut a piece of white pearl cardstock to 4 3/4” x 6 3/4” and emboss with a floral embossing folder. Lightly sponge the flowers and leaves with Coastal Coral and Leaf Green Archival Inks. Attach this layer to the card front. Using the HCD2-7430 Decorative Heart Die take the two inner hearts and die cut the pearl cardstock 2x, Do the same with both sheet 8B and 10A from the Friendship Rose paper pad. (For the pearl cuts use the outer hearts and for the colored cuts use the inner hearts for this project) With the outline heart only, cut Luxe Silver Cardstock 2x and adhere to the back of the pearl hearts previously cut. Using sentiment stamps from HCPC-3843 Special Birthday Sentiments Cling Stamp Set and HCPC-3845 Just For You Sentiments Cling Stamp set stamp the center of the colored hearts with the coordinating ink color. ( Bright Tangelo and Leaf Green Archival Ink) Glue the small hearts to the center of the larger hearts.

Stamp the curved branch 2x from the HCPC-3949 Sweet Magnolia Buds Cling Stamp Set with Versa Color Pigment White Ink onto Rajni Chawla’s Vellum. Using HCDA1-449 Stack and Store Daubers color the back side of the vellum with Leaf Green and Bright Tangelo Archival Inks. Die cut using coordinated dies. Lightly hand shape on the back side with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Adhere a string of pearls along the outer edge of the white pearl cardstock using the Dries Clear Glue. Attach the hearts to the card front as shown using foam dots for the lower heart and Double Dots 100pc - 3D Foam Circles for the top heart for extra height. Glue the Magnolia buds along side the hearts to complete the project.

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.
