Home is where the heart is.
Hi everyone! Welcome back to HeartcraftPaper.
As you probably have noticed there have been a number of changes to the site. I hope that these changes are more pleasing to all of you. That being said, I wanted to share this lovely card I made for a friend of mine who recently moved. Currently up on the shop I have the storybook collection and one of the images is an adorable cottage. I figured this would make a lovely house warming card.
Clock on any of the pictures below to enlarge.
Below are the items you will need to make this card.
Coloring The Image
Now that all of the coloring is completed, we are now ready to start constructing our card.
Trimming down the black cardstock to 3/4" x 5 1/2". Adhere this across the card base horizontally centered mid way on the card.
Time to adhere our image to our card base. Take your time to make sure that it is centered equally on all sides.
Alright! we are now down the final steps. We will need our green and lilac card stock. Using the hydrangea etched dies I cut out 2 leaves, 1 circle, 3 of the six stem star and 2 of the three stem star.
Curl the leaves with a using a boning tool. Slightly fold up the hydrangea petals and glue them to the stars. Once all your items are prepared you can start to glue down the first of the six stem star. Rotate the next one and glue that down. You will continue this with the rest of the stars rotating so that it does not overlap too much. Push up the stems so that it fills in. Fiddle around until your flower is how you like it.
Once the hydrangea is set to liking, glue down the flower to the lower left side of the card.
For the sentiment I used the slim banner from MFT to trim out of black cardstock. I hand wrote the sentiment "Home Sweet Home" with white gellie pen and glued it all down just underneath the hydrangea and the lower part of the card.
Now we are down to the final touches. Here we will add some pearl embellishments in the upper right corner. I used two different sizes for the pearls, the larges of the two as the center.
And here you have the final product.
I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and I hope that you you come back to see more. Don't forget to visit the Design Team gallery to see their concretions as well.
