It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations! This week I have another Christmas card for you using the Festive Christmas Collection released last week!
For my card, I used this pretty poinsettia border image from the Festive Candlelight Set and colored it with pencils and mineral spirits. The flower centers are dotted with Buttercup Liquid Pearls. I then trimmed down the image and matted it with Cherry Cobbler card stock. The background mat is one of the beautiful designer papers from the collection that I matted with white and then added it to a Cherry Cobbler card base. The “Merry Christmas” ticket is also from the designer paper that I cut using the Luggage and Tags Die.
Make sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!
