Happy Heartfelt Creations Wednesday***9-14-11***

Happy HC Wednesday.
Heartfelt Creations is pleased to introduce the Christmas Cheer Collection.The collection features 14 new precut stamp sets that coordinate with one new exclusive Heartfelt Creations die manufactured by Spellbinders and existing Spellbinder dies. The possibilities with the classic images in this collection are absolutely endless. I can see how much I am going to make poinsettias..More Flowers!!!! The stamp images are beautiful. Very elegant.
I chose to start out with a simple but very cute project...Mini Note Cards. I am on a Kraft kick lately, and wanted to do some white embossing on Kraft paper, and this is what I came up with.

I pulled out my Cricut Wild Cards Cartidge and picked this cute card and envelope set. I cut 6 sets at 3.5 inches.
The front of the card was stamped with the Snowy Winter background stamp using a white pigment ink, then each card was folded in half. Some seam binding was added and a bow was tied it the top of the card.
The Poinsettia were stamped using embossing ink, and Fine White embossing powder was heat set with a craft heat tool. The flowers were cut and layered, then a pearl was added to the middle and the finished flower was adhered to the middle of the card.

3 petals from a one layer flower was adhered to the top front of the flap on the envelope and the last 2 petals were folded over the flap and adhered to the back of the envelope. Each note card slips into the mini envelopes ready to use.
