Home is Where the Heart Is

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back for Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations and today I have two projects for you.

I love the subtle colours of the Calla Lily Paper collection and the gorgeous swans and for my first project I have combined the two to create a card that is perfect for a wedding card.  I have used the lovely heart dies, the Sweetheart Borders die and the swans themselves to create a heart motif that any bride and groom would love in a wedding card.  Don’t you just love the gorgeous cottage in this paper?

Romantic Triple Easel Wedding Card

Welcome Back

I have been meaning to do this triple easel card for sometime as it has intrigued me in how it was done.  I got very good instructions on how to make a triple easel card from Creative Expressions and this is my version of the card.  I can’t find the original post but here is another post with a triple easel card featuring different dies here.  It will give you the general idea about constructing a triple easel card.

20170113_184447-1-2

The original easel card just featured the Fleur de Lis Squares from Spellbinders but I decided to use the Labels 22 from Spellbinders more prominently and was happy with the result as the card was much stronger as well.  Of course I had to put some flowers on the card and the vellum flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die set was perfect for the soft romantic finish to the card.

I have used Bridal Tinsel embossing powder on vellum for a sparkly effect and it paired up well with the Angel Pink ink from Memento for just the softest of romantic touches to the white card.  The pearls on the Tied Together embossing folder from Couture Creations just finished off the card.  It is a small card and when folded up should fit in a standard A2 envelope and should be reasonably easy to post.

Here are the side views of the card:

20170113_184420-2

20170113_184407-2

Materials used:

Cardstock – Timbrels White Cardstock

Vellum

Stamps – CTMH Just Sayin’ Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose, Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, Labels 22, Fancy Frames Tags Two

Inks – Colorbox Frost White, Versamark, Memento Angel Pink, Bamboo Leaves

Embossing Powder – Ranger White, Bridal Tinsel, Stampendous Aged Ivory

Embossing Folder – Couture Creations Tied Together

Pearls from my stash.

This card, along with most of my other creations are available for sale at Gift Hutt.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting.
