July Heartfelt Creation Alumni Blog Hop


Happy July! If you are here from Vicki's blog you are on the right track. Make sure you leave comments along the way by Friday, July 29th at midnight EST to be entered for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Emma Lou and Heartfelt Creations. The final stop is Archana's blog, and I wish you all the best for your chance to win the HFC gift certificate!


I am adding to my Christmas card stash. I appreciate the elegant font of this sentiment from Dove of Peace (discontinued). Good alternatives to this sentiment would be either Ornate Sleigh or Gift Wrapped Presents. The striped panel is from Daphne Paper Collection (discontinued) but would look beautiful with either Sunrise Lily or Sparkling Poinsettia.


I adhered the ivory panels using dimensional foam, and the effect of the shadow is quite marvellous. I used a 1/2" hole punch for the row of ornaments, and backed it with transparent tape to adhere the glitter. I adhered dark pink cardstock behind the ornaments to bring out the pink in the pattern paper. The ornament hangers were hand drawn. I think I would draw the bows a little smaller next time!

Please do leave comments on all the alumni blogs for a chance to win a $25 Heartfelt Creations gift certificate. Carry on to Mary's blog for your final stop on the hop, and we hope to see you again next month!

Ohh, great idea for a simple and quick card. I very much need those. While I love the elaborate stuff sometimes I just don't have the time.
