Heartthrob Hangout Card for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday
Hello, Friends! Well, here we are…ready or not, it’s Christmas Eve Day! I’m actually in the kitchen today, prepping for our annual Christmas Eve party, but I wrote this post ahead of time so that I could share this Heartthrob Hangout card tutorial with you on Heartfelt Creations Wednesday. I’m sure you all are busy today as well, So I’ll just share some photos and basic details with you. A complete supply list and detailed instructions can be found below:
This card is a vision in pink, with just a touch of blue…and I think it is so sweet! I added silky soft 1/2″ pink wrinkled ribbon with my bow, and some ornamental dies from the Cut, Mat, Create Collection.
Of course, the gorgeous papers, stamps and dies from the Romantique Garden Collection are the star of the show in this frilly, romantic card. I know it’s Christmas Eve, but we will blink…and it will be Valentine’s Day! And this would be a great card for that occasion!
A little simple stamping on the inside panel….the paper from the collection does all the heavy lifting for me…and you have to love that about Heartfelt Creations! They make it easy to create beautiful art!
That’s all for me today, folks! Remember to stop by the Heartfelt Creations Blog for more inspiration from our incredible design team. They are just sooooo talented!
Wishing you a blessed Christmas Eve!
