It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration! I have another Christmas card for you this week, this time using the Festive Candlelight Set!
I stamped the image on white card stock and colored it with pencils and mineral spirits. I stamped an extra image, colored only the flower and fussy cut it to add a little depth to the image. I die cut the image using Labels 28 and die cut a mat from the designer papers using Decorative Labels 28. Here's a little close up of the image for you.
For the background mat, I used the beautiful Festive Christmas papers making sure to have the flowers on the papers in 2 of the corners. To finish the card I used ribbons and adhesive pearls.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see the beautiful creations by the designers this week!
