It's another exciting Heartfelt Creations release day...and the new "Snow Kissed" Collection is absolutely stunning! It's the second holiday/winter themed assembling that has been released this year and is perfect to compliment the "Celebrate the Season" Collection that was released last month!
There's just always a little something special about shaker cards, isn't there? Perhaps I love the Christmas versions so much because they remind me of snow globes.
As you can see there are so many wonderful images, stamped illustrations as well as decorative die cuts within this collection that the creativity for your holiday cards will be sparked in so many different ways!
Be sure to pop by the Heartfelt Creations online store to snatch up this collection early as I know the "I Want it All" kit will be selling out quickly!
And, once you've completed you shopping, head on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog for more holiday and winter fun inspiration!
Until next time...

Using a slightly lighter blue ink and sponge dauber, ink centers of the flowers working down through the centers of the petals being careful to not reach all the way to the tips.

As a finishing touch, using the dries clear adhesive and a fine bottle tip, apply glue to veining in flowers and sprinkle with glitter.
