Majestic Morning Special Hug for You Card
Welcome back, paper lovers! I’m just popping in quickly to share my second project for Heartfelt Creations this week. This Majestic Morning Special Hug for You card uses stamps, papers and artwork from the amazing Majestic Morning collection that debuted on the Heartfelt Creations blog yesterday. Working with this collection is pure joy! The colors are so bright and cheery…a welcome relief from the stormy winter days we’ve been having.
This 7″ x5″ top opening card started with one of the pretty card fronts included in the collection. I then stamped the vase and flowers onto white cardstock, colored them with Distress Markers and a water brush and treated them to a coat of Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). Once the UTEE had cooled completely, I cut it out and carefully bent the image, cracking the enamel. Here’s a close up:
It’s hard to capture with a photo, but in real life, the vase looks like old, cracked porcelain…it’s very cool!
I “padded” the center of the vase with a double layer of foam dimensionals on the back, then glued down the edges to give it this rounded effect.
I fell in love with this gorgeous medallion paper from the collection, and I think I used every single scrap of it, right down to the little fishtail banners I hung in the upper left hand corner of the interior.
And this collection is loaded with all kinds of tags, tickets, banners and borders to make card creation a breeze! I just love it!
So that’s my Majestic Morning Special Hug for You card….don’t you just love these bold, cheery colors and gorgeous graphic designs? I know I do! Once I opened the package, I couldn’t stop playing with it…it’s a favorite for sure! I hope you were inspired by today’s card…and that you’ll try the cracked porcelain technique yourself. Thanks for stopping by….hearing from you makes me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers! Until next time,
