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
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.
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.
I’m finding hose sweet vines and flowers from the Gift Ensemble Die are very useful! Here, I’ve used them to embellish the pocket.
The sentiment on the tag is from the amazing All Seasons Sentiment Pre Cut Stamp. I love all the sentiment combinations you can create using this single stamp!
The interior is decorated on both sides using Daphne papers and journaling cards. I’ve also stamped the Melodious Songbird on the main panel. The rest of the greeting is computer journaled.
