Thinking of you Today - Heartfelt Creations

Welcome back to my Blog today.  I am sharing another card with you using the Sweet Peony Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  

This background paper in the collection reminds me of wallpaper that use to be in my grandmothers kitchen.   I really wanted to use this paper in one of my projects and i have coordinated the plain green paper to coordinate. 



I love how Rajni uses the Sweet heart Border die with a plain pattern. and she adds a second border top and bottom.  It looks so elegant.  

And i have borrowed her idea and used it here on the bottom on my card. 


Until Next Week Happy Scrapping

</p><p> <b>Instructions: </b>
</p><p>
PARAGRAPH 2For Card Base: Card base is 5.5 x7.5 on white card. Cut a pattern paper from collection measuring 5.25 x 7.25.   Using the Fleur Border Basics set, cut on a coordinating pattern using the curve so paper measures approximately 4.75 x 5.75.  Once you have this curve cut on the pattern paper; take one of the pattern dies and cut a border on white card and mat this under the curve border. Glue on three sides to create a pocket.  Cut out the Sweetheart border die on white cards as well.  And on top of this attach a 1” x 6” green strip of paper from collection.  I attached the two border dies underneath and wrapped this around the front of the card base as well.  Adhere this these layers to card base.
</p><p>
PARAGRAPH 3Stamp out 3 sets of the large peony using plum archival ink on white card. Stamp and cut out 1 set of the small peony using plum archival ink on white card. Stamp out the small set on white card with plum archival ink.  Color centers of the flowers with sunflower archival ink and outer edges with Plum archival ink. Pierce in center with paper piercer to make room for stamen and foam buds.
</p><p>
PARAGRAPH 4Stamp and cut four large peony leaves using leaf green and color with fern green and leaf green archival ink. Stamp and cut out one classic rose vine and use as detail layers under the flower bunches.
</p><p>
PARAGRAPH 5 To mold the flowers I have cut an older molding mat in half and hot glued it together to form a double layer molding mat.  This allows some deeper shaping abilities if the flowers will not fit the 3D shaping molds. Insert the foam bud in the center of the second largest peony placing glue in center, attach another layer of flower then add 2 layers of the largest peony. Note:  Color the foam buds using the sunflower archival ink.  These will go in the centers Create 1 large flower this size. Create 1 medium flower and I used four smaller peony Do  not throw away the cut off wire stems
</p><p>
PARAGRAPH 6Take the stylus tool and wrap the cut off wire around the stylus to form a curly wire piece, insert these throughout the flower clusters to add some detail. Cut out two tags in green using the luggage and tag die. Mat these in white card.  Attach twine in hole for some detail. Tuck these into the pocket of the card as shown. Feel free to detail all the flowers and leaves with crystal clear. Attach sentiment from Collection. Complete card as I have shown in my sample
