Heartfelt Creations: To A Beautiful You...

Hello!  Today I have a Heartfelt Creations project to share with you.  I just love the vintage images in the Sunny Days collection.  The worn and weathered patterned papers go beautifully with the images in this collection.  I did some paper pleating under the twine at the top.  You can find the product list and instructions on recreating this card below.

HCPC 3516-Antique Essentials PreCut Set
HCPC 3509-Timeless Sentiments PreCut Set
HCDP1 230 Sunny Day Paper Collection
other supplies: charcoal cardstock, white cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Ranger distress inks in Walnut Stain and Old Paper, grey baker's twine, half pearl, vintage button
Fold charcoal base so that it measures 4.25" x 5.5" when folded.  Cut a 4" x 5.25" piece of Sunny Days patterned paper.  Stamp vintage water pump in lower left corner in black ink.  Ink edges of panel with distress inks and distress edges of paper with scissors or fingernail.  Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock and cut out individual words.  Ink edges with distress ink and adhere to lower right corner next to water pump image.  Adhere panel to center of card base.  Cut a strip of Sunny Days patterned paper that measures 12" x 1.5".  Crumple the paper up and accordian fold.  You do not want it to look perfect, but old and shabby.  I sponged distress inks on the strip after I pleated it.  Adhere to top of card and trim any extra on each side.  Tie Baker's twine into a loopy bow around the pleated paper and add a button and pearl to the center.

Make sure you check out the Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiring projects from the design team!

Thanks for stopping by!
