Romantique Garden Wedding Card Tutorial for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday
Hello, Friends! Well, here we are…the last day…and the last Heartfelt Creations Wednesday… of 2014. I don’t know about you, but for me, this year has just flown by. I’m happy to share this Romantique Garden Wedding Card with you today.
This 5″ x 7″ cutaway card features one of the gorgeous card fronts from the paper collection along with some embossing, layered die cuts and hand made roses. You’ll find a complete supply list and detailed tutorial for making this card below.
I plan to spend the day today working in my studio, playing with paper and coming up with fresh ideas to share with you all in 2015. We don’t really do much on New Year’s Eve. We get up early every morning, so we go to bed early, too…even on New Year’s Eve! Wishing you a blessed, safe and warm New Year’s Eve and a New Year filled with joy, health, abundance and creativity!
