Thinking of You...

Hi There!
I'm so glad you've taken the time to visit and to take a look around today!
If you're a regular follower, you know that today is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!
We're currently still creating with the Enchanted Mum Collection, and take my word for it, the design team has certainly created some enchanting works of art with this stunning collection.  The Heartfelt Creations blog is just full of a fresh dose of inspiration each and every Wednesday!

This week I have used the paper collection, and several of the stamps to create a "box card".  I found a cutting file in the Silhouette Design Store and decided this would make a unique paper craft.  

Here's how this creation turned out...

It is super cool how this card opens into a box and reveals the message inside!

Here's a look at the card when closed and secured with the belly band...

...and how about a bit of a closer look at the belly band...

I've included the full instructions at the end of this blog post should you be interested in recreating a version yourself!

Be sure to stop by the Heartfelt Creations blog today when you have an extra moment...there will be so much to ohhhh and ahhh over!  

Until next time...

Choose a 12"x12" designer paper from within the Enchanted Mum Collection to use as the card base and belly band.  Cut card base and band using your electronic die cutter and cutting file.  For the side panels, choose a patterned paper with some larger images and cut using paper trimmer so you are able to pick out the specific area of designs you are wanting to use.  Ink all edges of card pieces and card base using a light brown colored ink.  Assemble card base and apply side panels.  Choose a small pre made card panel from the paper collection and trim to fit centre of box card.  Ink all edges using the same brown colored ink and apply to inside of card.  Color the dragonfly and mum image pictured using distress markers straight onto the rubber stamp.  Gently huff on rubber stamp to reactivate ink and stamp onto white colored card stock.  Allow to dry slightly and then gently pass a wet water brush over the image to blend slightly. Adhere prills.  Stamp a second dragonfly image, color and fussy cut. Using a glue pen brush over the dragonfly lightly and apply Glitter Ritz.  Bend the wings up gently and adhere body over the original stamped image, allowing the wings to rise creating a 3D effect.  Adhere flower image to card.  Choose a ticket sentiment to add to the bottom of the flower image, ink all edges with brown ink  and then apply to card using 3D pop dots. Die cut one of the  large dies from the Arianna Lace Die Set in a light pattened colored paper from the Enchanted Mum Paper Collection, as well as two of the petal style dies and two of the longer detailed die.  Adhere large die cut to the centre of thte belly band, along with the two petal style die cuts one on each side of the large die cut.  Place one of the long detailed die cuts onto each side of the belly band which will fold to be the wrap around to the back.  Stamp the mum image using a light coral color.  Using a sponge dauber, apply the same color lightly to both the front and the back of the stamped image.  Die cut using the coordinating die.  Using just the two smaller flowers, shape petals using the Deluxe Flower shaping Kit and then fold each in half.  Once folded in half, reopen and apply a small amount of glue to the fold and refold.  Now, glue the smaller half bloom to the larger.  Add prills and set aside to dry.  Stamp the smallest flower in the same coral color twice and shape into  two flower buds. Color the sentiment stamp using the same technique you used to color the dragonfly and mum image.  Stamp onto white card stock and die cut using the coordinating die.  Adhere to card using 3D pop dots, doubling them together one on top of the other so that the sentiment image stands up off the card a little further.  Adhere flower and buds to card.  Stamp the leaves from the mum image in the Enchanted Mum Bouquet Cling Stamp Set twice.  Color using several shades of green ink and die cut using the coordinating die.  Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit and a spritz of water.  Adhere leaves to card as shown.  Lastly, add in the crystal swirl embellishments.
