HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers OCTOBER blog hop

hello HEARTFELT CREATIONS friends! 

and WELCOME to the HEARTFELT CREATIONS alumni designers OCTOBER blog hop!

with the holiday season approaching fast, there is nothing better to create than CHRISTMAS cards, of course:



for the base of my card i used a vintage CHRISTMAS collection from MAKING MEMORIES. i altered the front part using HCPC3473 tattered background precut set with brown ink.


then i stamped the evergreen branch from the HCPC3490 holiday mail precut set onto a green shimmering cardstock and fussy cut the image. i added it to the card base using 3d mounting tape.


then i stamped the bird house on a white cardstock. i used HCPC3491 holiday haven precut set, colored it with COPIC CHAO markers and fussy cut the image. after i adhered it to my card, i added extra glimmer and glam by coloring the poinsettia with RANGER christmas red and golden glitter glue and adding the red berries.

for my sentiment i used HCPC3562 christmas sentiment circles precut set. for the frame around the sentiment i used SPELLBINDERS classic scallop circle small die.


i hope you enjoyed today's creation!
