Burst of Splendor Sympathy Card

Good Wednesday morning, friends!  Hope you are all enjoying these lazy summer days.  It’s perfect weather for INDOOR fun in North Carolina.  Lots of rain and steamy temperatures, so spending time in the studio makes a lot of sense right now.  Today is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, and this week I have two cards to share with you.  My Burst of Splendor Sympathy Card features a fussy cutting technique that takes advantage of that regal garden gate from the collection. All the details and a step by step tutorial for these projects can be found on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today, along with a lovely collection of projects from the other members of the design team.

Burst of Splendor Sympathy Card

Heartfelt Creations July 13 2013 01 This regal gate from the Burst of Splendor Paper Collection was fussy cut and layered with beautiful dahlia images from the same page.  Each layer is mounted on foam tape.

Heartfelt Creations July 13 2013 02 I also used a Versamark Pen to add Heirloom Gold embossing powder to the tips of the petals and along the iron gate.

Heartfelt Creations July 13 2013 03 The sentiment is stamped using theClassic Message Pre Cut Stamp Set. I love the font of this particular set of stamps.  I used one of the journaling blocks from the cut apart page for the sentiment, and another on the inside greeting:

To Encourage You

I also made an encouragement card that features a pocket and tag.
