French Cottage Card with Heartfelt Creations

Hi everyone, I was thrilled to win the entire French Cottage Collection from Heartfelt Creations this month.  What an amazing collection - it contained a beautiful paper pad, three stamp sets and three coordinating dies.

The paper pad includes papers to be used for card fronts as well as elements that can be die cut with the coordinating dies.  If you don't want to color images, you can simply die cut them from the papers.

I stamped the door twice on two different shades of beige cardstock using mahogany ink.  Using the coordinating dies, I cut apart the doors.  All the pieces were inked with mahogany ink.

Creating a card from red cardstock, I placed the lighter panel and the filigree panel on the card.  Then I added the door and door frame using the darker elements.

Using Rinea Foiled Papers in Jade/Gold Glossy and Fuchsia/Gold Glossy, I die cut the leaf spray and both sizes of flowers using StazOn Chocolate Brown Pigment Ink.  This ink does not smear when stamping on foiled papers.

I used the coordinating dies to die cut the leaf spray and flowers.

Next, I used the Heartfelt Creations Flower Shaping Tool to shape the leaf spray and flowers.

I adhered the leaf spray around the door frame, then placed the flowers.  The bicycle, flower spray and satchel were die cut directly from the paper pad - how fun is that!

 Finally, I added glossy accents to the door knob and knocker.

I have not yet added a sentiment inside as I don't know yet who will be getting this card.  Alternatively, I may just keep it!!!!

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
