This hop starts now and runs until 11:55PM on Monday, November 30th.  One comment will be randomly chosen from a mystery blog to receive a $25 Heartfelt Creations Gift Certificate!  All you have to do is hop and comment!  The winner will be announced on the Heartfelt Creations blog and Facebook page on Wednesday, December 2nd.  We will also contact the winner via email and I will name the winner at the top of this blog post at that time.  Now let’s get this Black Friday party started!

Scalloped Flourish Gateway Die with Wild Roses Trifold Card

My project for the Black Friday Blog Hop features the elegant Scalloped Flourish Gateway Die and the Wild Roses Paper Collection.  Here’s how I put the cover together.

  • First ink all the edges of a 5″ x 7″ Gateway Fold Card Base with Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage and Scattered Straw Distress Inks.  Lightly mist the edges with water to create a spattered background.
  • Next, Die cut a panel of rose colored card stock.  Trace around the inside edge of this same  die onto patterned paper from the collection.  Cut out and mat on the colored cardstock.
  • Now cut all the pieces of the Scalloped Flourish Die from white cardstock.  Pop the scalloped edge up on foam tape.  Then adhere the rest of the pieces inside.
Wild Rose Cascade

TIP: Short on time? Just die cut the printed flowers from the 12×12 Wild Rose paper pad!  The flowers are already “stamped” and colored for you.  Simply die cut, shape and layer. Add some extra mixed media spa treatments to the leaves and petals.  This will not only save you loads of time, but both sides of the paper are already colored.

  • Next die cut all the Small Wild Roses and Foliage from the printed page in the Wild Rose Paper Collection.
  • Then shape the leaves and petals in the Small Wild Rose Shaping Mold.
  • Next, assemble the petal layers using Dries Clear Adhesive to hold them in place.
  • Now brush the edges of the petals with Distress Ink to highlight the creases.
  • Then apply Nuvo Mousse to the leaves and the petals to add shimmer and shine.
  • Then use a Crop-A-Dile punch to make a hole in the center of each shaped flower and insert Wild Rose stamens and Prills to finish the flowers.
  • Adhere the flowers in a cascade down the side of the card.  Tuck in bead/berry/stamen clusters as accents.
A Peek Inside

I was blessed to receive an Elegant Gateway Cling stamp Set in my box. Here’s how I put them to use:

  • First, stamp the sentiment onto vellum using Jet Black Archival Ink.  T
  • Next, heat emboss  with clear embossing powder.
  • Now adhere the vellum sentiment  with Dries Clear Adhesive. The edges of the vellum seem to disappear.

First create a pocket in the center of the trifold.  This is a great spot to tuck in a little decorative tag.

Now add a pocket on the back side of the Elegant Gateway Fold Card.  This is the perfect place to tuck in a treat.

On With the Hop!

    Love that the beautiful flower spray can be made

    Beautiful color choices, and those Heartfelt dies, wow! As usual, you knocked it out of the park.

    Adding flower stamen clusters, sans flowers, is a new detail concept…seems to work well…very dramatic! Beautiful floral cluster!

    Kathy, this card is so elegant! That die is absolutely gorgeous and so intricate. Heartfelt Creations always has such beautiful, soft and dreamy paper colors and images. I love how you designed this card and I really like that pretty little heart butterfly charm! Thank you for sharing this beauty! Hugs!


    Love this floral shaped card and perhaps you have mentioned it before but I did not know about punching a hole through the flowers to put the stamens through – great neat idea. Thanks again for adding such detail in your instructions and for another beautiful creation,

    I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and that the smell of pumpkin pie wafted through your house. Even through all this chaos that is going on in this world, we still have so much to be thankful for in our lives.
    Love this piece Kathy and of course the goodies hiding inside. Much love from Victoria, BC

    I always love your artistic creations because they are dimensional and there’s always something added when you open them along with a place from r a real. To add additional interest, this cards adds a shaped card. You never disappoint!

    My type of card Kathy. But, I do think that “all” your cards are my type, gorgeous, beautiful, stunning, heavenly & dimensional! I like the shape of this one & so much you can do with it. Course the Raspberry chocolate would be my favorite :) Hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving, be safe & TYFS
