Heartfelt Creations - Vibrant Violet Clematis

 Hi Friends,

Today I have a pretty slimline card to share with you created with the Climbing Clematis flower by Heartfelt Creations. I have paired it up with numerous other items to produce this card which would be suitable for a birthday or any other SPECIAL occasion. Now lets take a look at all the details and how I actually put this together...



Cut a piece of white card stock to 9 1/4” x 8 1/4” 

and score in half at 4 1/8”. With HCD3-7448 Slim Ornate Rectangle Die use the largest die and cut through both layers of the folded card base making sure to let the long edge of the die fall over the edge of the card to preserve the fold. This will create the shaped card base. Next using the same die, cut two pieces from the HCDP1-2128 Climbing Clematis Paper Pad, sheet 10B. Ink the edges using the HCDA2-450 Stack and Store Daubers with Majestic Violet Archival Ink, then attach these two papers to the card front and inside of the card. (The inside piece will need a slight trimming across the top to fit) Using the second largest die from the Slim Ornate Rectangle Die Set, cut 2x, once from white card stock and once from Luxe Silver Card stock. Discard the center piece from the Luxe Silver Card stock as we will not be using that piece. Save the white inside piece for stamping on in the next step. Now layer the white and silver frames with silver on top slightly off setting them so that the white shows a little. Glue this to the card front.

Now take the white inside piece from the above die cut piece and stamp HCPC-3969 Vining Clematis Banner Cling Stamp Set 2x horizontally across the paper with Leaf Green Archival Ink. Color with the Stamp and Store Daubers with Leaf Green, Olive, and Majestic Violet ink. Glue to the center of the frame on the card front. Stamp the HCPC-3954 Clematis Cling Stamp with Majestic Violet Ink, the small size 3x and medium size 1x. onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Color lightly with Majestic Violet ink and then die cut with the coordinating dies. After die cutting Darken the edges with the dauber and the Majestic Violet ink.  Shape using the coordinating 3D Shaping mold then use the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit to press the centers of each flower. Now layer as desired and add Lettuce Entertain You Prills and Crystal Clear Glitter to finish the flowers. Next stamp the HCPC-3912 Cascading Wisteria Cling Stamp Set 3x in leaf green onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper and color with Leaf and Olive Archival Inks. Die cut using coordinating dies. Shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Die cut the sentiment dies from the Slim Ornate Rectangle Die Set 3x from white card stock and 1x from sheet 10B used earlier. Adhere these on top of each other with the purple paper on top and then ink the edges with Majestic Violet ink. Center the sentiment dies onto the card base and glue down. Now arrange the vines and flowers around the frame and attach with a glue gun to complete the card. 

 I just love the way these Wisteria Vine paired up with the Clematis makes them look like they are truly climbing all over the card. 

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.
