Heartfelt Creations ~ In Sympathy Lilies

Hello Friends,

Welcome back to more weekly inspiration featuring the Garden Lily Collection from Heartfelt Creations. Today I have a lovely slim line card to share with all of you. It features the beautiful papers along with flowers and foliage from the newest collection.  


Cut a piece of white cardstock to 7 1/4” x 9 1/8” and score in half at 3 5/8” to form a left fold slim line card base. Using the HCD3-7432 Slim Basic Rectangle Die use the largest die to cut a piece from Sheet 4B from the HCDP1-2147 Garden Lily Paper Collection. Using the 
HCDA1-449 Stack & Store Daubers ink the edges with Olive Archival Ink. Using the second largest die from the Slim Basic Rectangle Dies cut a piece from sheet 4A and do the same inking with the edges. Attach both of these layers to the front of the card base using Dries Clear Adhesive. Next using the HCD3-7435 Curvy Accent Border Die set create a double layer accent border as shown using both Luxe Gold and White Cardstock. Glue this beautiful edge to the left hand side. Next take the HCD2-7371 Letters and Numbers Die Set to create the sentiment by cutting the smaller letters in both gold and white. Layer them by slightly offsetting them to coordinate with the border. This is a wonderful way to customize a sentiment perfectly for the occasion. 

Using the  HCPC-31011 Garden Lily Cling Stamp Set stamp the small lily 1x and the medium/large lily 2x onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper with Peony Pink Archival Ink. Next stamp the Leaf Stamp 3x in Olive Archival Ink. Cut out using the coordinating die sets. Color the centers lightly with Rose Madder Ink and with the triangle tip of the dauber color the detail line on the flowers by pulling the color towards the tip. Lightly edge the flower petal as well. Color the leaves with Leaf Green and Olive Archival Inks. Now shape all the flowers and leaves with the coordinating 3D Shaping Mold. Then using both the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Set and Golf Tools shape your flower after spritzing them from the back with water and finish hand shaping. Poke a hole with a golf tool and add in 4-5, HCS1-499 Petite Pollen Stamens - Medium making sure to secure them with hot glue. Lastly add Dries clear glue to the petals and generously add Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear Glitter. For the Filler Flowers the HCPC-3906 Small Wild Rose Cling Stamp Set was used. It was stamped and lightly colored in Goldenrod Archival Ink and the centers were colored in Bright Tangelo. They were die cut with the coordinating dies and shaped in the coordinating 3D Shaping Mold. Go Mango Prills were added to the centers to finish them off. 

Using both of the HCPC-31012 Garden Lily Spray & Fillers Cling Stamp Set and the 
HCPC-31013 Garden Lily Bouquet & Buds Cling Stamp Set stamp numerous foliage pieces in Leaf Green Archival Ink and color using a mixture of Sunflower, Vivid Chartreuse, and Leaf Green. Using a Hydra Sponge Coat with a layer of Dries Clear Glue and cover with Crystal Clear Glitter and allow to dry. 

To assemble, layer the glittered Garden Lily Sprays and Fillers down first toward the bottom left corner of the card, followed by the shaped leaves leaving a couple out to add in after the flowers are glued down. Arrange the flowers and glue down using a glue gun with hot glue. Add in extra leaves or foliage as desired until the final desired look is achieved. Complete the inside 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.
