Instructions: Hi all the lovely crafters visiting Heartfelt Creations. Kim here with a large card made for this week using the Gorgeous Raindrops on roses collection, which I immediately start singing to when I hear that name. So I used a few of my favorite things in this card. I started with a piece of card 7" x 8 1/2" in milk and used a mat of old gold paper on top. The next layer I pierced using the piercing tool and ruler and added it to the base on top of 3mm foam for a little height. I then took a piece of the gorgeous paper covered in beautiful roses and leaves with a subtle script in the background and covered it with the adhesive sheet and sprinkled the chunky clear but very very sparkly glitter just around the edges, the middle would be covered so there was not a need to cover this as it would not be seen. I matted that onto milk and added it to the card again on foam with glue added to help it stick to the glitter. I took one of the pre-made card fronts from the paper and mounted it with a small edge again on milk card and wrapped a piece of the cream seam binding that I died with the cranberry Adirondack to match the flowers and bow. I cut out one piece of the paper ribbon strips and mounted it on milk, inking the edges again with cranberry. I stamped out two of the classic leaves in memento grey flannel and cut them out with the matching die, I inked them in stages with three different greens and once dry added small amount of the cranberry in random areas lightly. I also stamped the vintage morning background precut stamp 3 times in cranberry and cut them all out of thick paper/thin card. I ran a water brush over them to soften the paper and also to bleed the ink slightly and added some raspberry adirondack in the centers. I used a ball tool to work the fibers in the paper on all the flowers with an embossing foam mat and when they dried they were much stronger and in shape more. I then layered them all and shaped them together into roses and buds, I added all of these with a very strong wet glue with dimension and added to the bottom left corner. I tied a bow with the seam binding and added that to the top of the card and then a burlap bow too and in the centre I added my vintage button. Lastly, I added some flat back pearls to wet glue in various corners for the finishing touch. I hope you enjoyed this card as I absolutely love making and shaping, inking the flowers and their are no other that look like the wonderful Heartfelt Creations. Have a great week everyone. Kim
