Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Card

a Cut at Home Design Team Project

I like when I can double purpose a card, using it as the card and the gift all rolled into one. By adding a pocket on the front for a Gift Card that's exactly what today's project does.

I used several papers from Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed fussy cutting flowers and the banner to pop up and give dimension to the front of the card.  I did the centers with Stickles Waterfall Blue, make sure if you use a lot of Stickles like I did that you allow plenty of drying time!  In the pocket behind the banner I tucked some shreds along with the gift card. 

Inside I cut a panel from Spellbinders Divine Eloquence and added a cut out from the paper collection that I stamped the sentiment, Journey of a Lifetime.  This is from Heartfelt Creations, Celebrate the Journey Collection.  I also combined the  cut from the leaves of Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose and Spellbinders Hibiscus Corner for added bits inside and out.  

One new thing I used was Spellbinders Tool 'n One.  OMG if you cut a lot of dies you MUST add this to your crafty collection of tools!  I love it.  After I had cut the Divine Eloquence mat I removed all the little bits with just a few swipes of the brush.  If the die piece hadn't just popped out I could have attached the point end and poked it enough to lift, then switched to the paddle tool to gently lift the die cut from the die.  This tool is amazing and alleviates the frustration of poking and poking and poking all those little bits from the paper.  Carrie from Cut at Home has a great video out showing this tool in depth if you'd like to check it out here.

Follow along on the video for a complete step by step to make this card.

Thanks for stopping by everyone, if you haven't subscribed to my blog I hope you'll do it today.  Patti

What a lovely card. I hadn't thought to use the paper shreds on a card, Lord knows I have bags and bags of it! I know what you are saying about the Spellbinders tool, it has literally changed my die-cutting life!

You've really created a beautiful card again, Patti. It's so fun to see you put it together especially since I don't do your kind of crafting. So proud of your work and of you, little Sister. Keep up the great work.
