Countryside Evening Any Occasion Card

Welcome back!
I'm here today with a second Heartfelt Creations post for the week!
I just couldn't resist making a card with the Countryside Evening paper collection paired with the gorgeous fuchsia flowers!

The Countryside Evening paper collection is one that I love love love...well I love love love each and every one of the collections...but this is one that I hoard and hate to cut into!  LOL  I love the colors of the papers and decided that they would be perfect paired up with fuchsias on a celebration card for any occasion!  
After all, we can never have too many any occasion cards tucked away for those special moments that tend to creep up on us!

Let's take a look at the card I created by pairing these two collections together...


I decided to go with a little bit of a different color theme for the fuchsia which is so out of my comfort zone...I tend to stick to the colors of the real flower for some reason.  But I do have to admit that they came out with an interesting look...


The flowers were stamped on a blue paper from the Countryside Evening collection and then inked lightly with a purplish color.  The "cap" to the flower as well as the stamens have been inked slightly with a blue ink.  I've then added some Vintage Photo Stickles to the edges of the petals as well as a dot to the bottom of each stamen.  Sorry the picture isn't the best...I did find this one hard to photograph as the colors are all so monochromatic. 

I've added some golden colored rhinestones around the sentiment as well as around the leafy areas to add some extra sparkle and interest.  I've also used some lace type ribbon to keep with a more country feel...as well as some gold twine to bring a touch of glamor.  I've fussy cut the small bird from one of the pre made card panels in the paper collection.  And, doesn't that decorative oval die cut look beautiful paired up with the pretty lace design printed on the paper.  The last bit I wanted to point out is the background behind the decorative oval...to tie in the fuchsia theme, I've stamped the Fuchsia Spray Cling Stamp Set in navy ink.  It's hard to see in the picture, but it gives the card just a little extra interest.  
Here's a little closer look...it's just such a subtle detail...


Well, I hope you've enjoyed what I shared with you today!

Cut a piece of white card stock measuring 41/4" x 12" and fold in half to create your card base.  Locate the background paper shown here in the paper collection and cut to cover card base.  Mask off any area on the card base you do not wish to have any image stamped over.  Using Paris Dusk Memento color, ink the Fuchsia Spray Cling Stamp Set, and create a patterned background in the open area of the paper.  Ink all edges of the card front with a light brown ink.  Using a light cream patterned paper from the paper collection and a manual die cutting machine, cut a decorative oval.  Next, locate the oval image shown which is part of a smaller premade card panel.  Die cut the oval image using the Spellbinders oval die. Ink around the oval with a light brown ink.   Using the same paper you cut the decorative oval, trace the Spellbinders oval die you just used around the outside of the die to create a mat for the oval image.  Once again ink with a light brown color.  Adhere both ovals together.  Using the Nautical Blue Memento ink, stamp the sentiment of your choice.  Adhere card front to the card base.  Using a spray adhesive apply the decorative oval to the card base.  Next adhere the matted oval to the card as shown.  Choose a lighter blue paper from the paper collection and stamp your fuchsia images.  Lightly ink the flower portion with a soft purple in some areas and a light cream colored ink in others with ink tool.  Ink the stamen and flower tops with a blue colored ink.  Die cut the flowers with the coordinating die.  Shape flowers, one in each size.  Next, using the same blue paper, stamp several of each of the stamps in the Open Leaf Cling Stamp Set.  Die cut using the coordinating die and shape as desired.  Lastly, using a darker green paper from the paper collection die cut one vining corner from the Cut Mat Create 2B die.  Snip into pieces.  Begin by placing your leaves around the sentiment oval as well as positioning your flowers where you would like them to be.  Once happy with placement adhere to card, filling in more leaves as needed.  Create loopy bow and attach as shown.  Take snipped pieces of the vines and add where desired within the leaves.  Lastly add gold tone gems as desired.  For the finishing touch add some stickles to the tips of petals on the flowers as well as to the bottom of the stamens.  You now have an any occasion card ready for that next special event...whether it be a wedding, anniversary, or birthday!
