Heartfelt Creations - Merry Christmas

Good Morning All and apologies for my absence last month.
We had a family wedding which took place in Scotland and with all the last bits of prep to do, I had no time for blogging.  Arrived home on Saturday after a lovely 9 days away on the outskirts of Edinburgh.  I will share a few photos soon.
I am a bit behind with blogging my projects for Heartfelt Creations, so will catch up with these over the next week also.  My project on the Heartfelt Creations blog today is a Christmas card, November already!
This card is really easy to make and I hope to make more to send out as my Christmas cards for this year!  The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the new design team.

Card Size :    11cm x 13 1/2cm (4 1/4" x 5 1/4"). 
Create a card blank from white card.  Add the two distress inks colours to the stamp.  Lightly spray with water, then stamp the image onto white card and allow to dry.  Using the pine needles ink and some water, use your water brush to paint on some white card, allow to dry.  Using the Large Rounded Rectangle: 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", die cut the festive notes background. Using the  Large Rounded Rectangle: 3 3/4" x 4 3/4", die cut a mat from the green painted paper.  Adhere these together using double sided tape.  Stamp the sentiment onto a separate piece of the same green paper and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.  Die cut using the middle sized Heirloom Ornament Die. Create a loopy bow from bright gold twine on the bow maker, add a strip of cord around the top of the card as shown and secure.  Add the ornament using foam pads, adhering the end of the cord behind.  Add the bow using hot glue.  Cut a mat from dark red card and round the corners using a punch - mine measured 10cm x 12 1/2cm (4" x 5"). Adhere together using foam pads.  Add to the card blank using double sided tape 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,
