Heartfelt Creations - Mahogany Blooms

Good Morning All!
Today I have another card featuring The Arianna Blooms Collection and it's another yellow card. I don't usually pick yellow as a main colour, but this paper was so pretty, that I used it for my colour combination.
This card also has a story. When I started to design this card, I added ink around the edges of  the paper and heat embossed it, then took a quick photo for the Heartfelt Creations Facebook Page to show work in progress.  When the post went live, I realised that I had photographed the paper upside down, the bird gave it away! When I went to stick down the paper, guess what? I even manged to stick it down upside down, luckily I noticed and managed to remove it, turn the card blank inside out and start again.  Then I cut another piece of the same paper to hide the mess left behind inside.  Got there eventually!

Card Size :   10 1/2cm x 14 1/2cm (4 1/8" x 5 6/8")
Create a card blank from cream card.  Select the paper shown from the paper collection and trim to measure 10cm x 14cm (4" x 5 1/2").  Add the dark red ink to the edges and emboss with clear powder. Add to the card blank using double sided tape. Stamp the sentiment with dark red ink onto cream card and heat embosss with clear powder.  Die cut using the fancy tag die shown.  Trim off the right side of the tag and add to the card using foam pads. Stamp the blooms with the aged mahogany ink and die cut using the matching die.  Select the smallest 3 blooms, blend some of the dark red ink onto the flowers and shape them. Die cut 3 centres from yellow card, shape and add to the flowers. Add some black microbeads to the centre, then add them to the card to complete.

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.

Thanks for visiting me today,

Good afternoon Oksana,
Once again a stunning card, I love it.
If it had not been for the "bird" the design would have looked really good either way up.
Have a great weekend

Ah, we all have those days in the studio, don't we? The end result is just lovely! And your little bird looks no worse for the wear...maybe he enjoyed his upside down flight!
