Nov 9 ~ Release ~ Friendship Rose Collection ~ Entwined Love

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to RELEASE DAY with Heartfelt Creations. Today I have my first card featuring the Friendship Rose Collection. This collection has beautiful rose wreaths that are perfect for so many occasions including Valentines Day, Weddings, Anniversaries, just to name a few. This set also has a Magnificent focal die set which I am showing off with my first card. Lets take a look see....




Cut a piece of white card stock to 7 x 10” and score in half at 5”. Using sheet 11B from the HCDP1-2145 Friendship Rose Paper Collection, cut a piece measuring 5 x 7” and glue to the front of the card base. From the same sheet of paper, cut the center scalloped heart and the center decorative heart dies separately from HCD2-7430 Decorative Heart Die. Next using the same Decorative Heart Die set, cut the largest die twice, once from white card stock and once from Luxe Silver Cardstock. Do these same steps with the smallest die in the set, the sentiment, cutting once from white and once from silver. In both of these cases, using dries clear glue, adhere the white layer on top of the silver layer slightly offsetting them so that the silver peeks out from behind the white. From sheet 9B from the Friendship Rose Paper Collection, cut a piece measuring 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 and ink the edges using the HCDA2-450 Stack and Store Daubers with Magenta Hue Archival Ink. Glue this pink piece to the front of the card base. Now adhere the large white and silver layered decorative die onto the pink paper. Using some 3D foam dots, attach the black scalloped heart to the center of the card. Set aside the small black heart with the layered “love” sentiment on it, to be add later.

Stamp the focal image from the HCPC-31005 Friendship Rose Heart Cling Stamp set onto white cardstock using Jet Black Archival ink. Using detailed coloring brushes, lightly color the roses and leaves with Magenta Hue and Vivid Chartreuse Archival Inks. Add detailed shadows using Pink and Light Green Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and blend a little with a fine paint brush and water. (Designer Tip: When using Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper as I did, The paper can hold some water like with this technique.) Once colored, die cut with the coordinating die and attach to the center black scalloped heart using 3D foam dots. Add dots of glue using the Fine Metal Tip on the Dries Clear Glue bottle and sprinkle on Baby’s Breath Glitter for a finishing touch. Now add the sentiment off set to one side using Double Dot foam circles along with a single thinner 3D foam dot to achieve the correct height for the right side of the heart. For a finishing touch add medium size pearls for extra detail.

Inside of the card is always optional but for this design matching pink paper was used with inked edges just as described in the first paragraph. The HCD1-7202 Album Tags and Accents Die Set was used for a decorative center and corners. A single rose was added colored just like the roses on the front which came from the HCPC-31006 Budding Rose Heart Cling Stamp Set, and lastly a Valentine’s sentiment was stamped from the HCPC-31007 Friendship Sentiments Cling Stamp Set. This created a perfectly coordinated inside to the finished 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.
