Heartfelt Creations - Sharing Together

It's turned cold, wet and a bit miserable her in Sydney, the perfect weather for curling up with a good book and some hot chocolate........well that's my plan anyway.
Today's HC  card features Bella Rose once again and I have to tell you I've had such fun this month colouring the roses.  Red roses are gorgeous though my favourite would be the pretty Peace Rose......sadly the possums like them too!
You can see this and all the design team cards at the Heartfelt Creations Blog or individual dt members are posted under the DT tab at the top of the page.

Here are the details:
5.75 inches square card.

On Sahara Sand card stamp main image, sentiment, one closed rose stem and three buds using tuxedo black ink.  Using the matching dies cut the three buds and the closed rose stem. Using the Labels 2 die cut and emboss the main image. Trim the sentiment. Colour all with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. Using the silver pen add highlights to the main image.  Pop up the closed rose stem and bud with foam tape.
Trim Burgundy card followed by the After Five dsp making each 1/8’ smaller than the previous layer. Adhere these with Zip Dry adhesive.
Trim Elle Blue Ashley dsp to 5.25” square and adhere to card. 
Using the fleur De Lis die cut one strip from the Burgundy Card and adhere to left side of card.  Wrap a length of burgundy organza ribbon around the card and secure at the back.  Tie a bow in another length and using a foam tab attach to the right side of the card.
Using foam tape, attach the image to the centre of the main card.   Add a strip of clear gems to the left edge of the Fleur De Lis strip.
Mat the sentiment to a piece of burgundy card add the two rose buds using more Zip Dry adhesive.
Adhere the card front to the base card using Zip Dry glue.

Now just as an end note I have to tell you that the ladies from Heartfelt Creations introduced me to Zip Dry glue a product made by Beacon Adhesives. I've never seen it here in Australia but I love it!!! I hardly use the double sided craft tape these days as this though drying quickly allows  you a moment to straighten if you need to. I do go over with a brayer but not always it still dries smooth, no wrinkles and it dries clear.  Fabulous! Thought I'd share.......

See you soon.........
