With Love + Rejoice in the season

Hello my friends! I have a couple of cards I made with Heartfelt Creations stamps, but before I go on with my projects I want to share with you a little bit of what happened 24 years ago, October 13, 1986 my mom went to live with the Lord, she was only 46 and full of life, but the Lord had other plans for her and for us as a family too, I have to confess the following years were not easy for me, I went through a lot of things emotionally, but I am thankful the Lord touched my heart and I got the peace I always wanted. I miss my mom a lot, but I know she is in a better place and I can't wait to be reunited again.
Here is a picture of her and my dad, I think this picture was taken at my dad's school graduation :)


Now onto my projects:

Rejoice in the season.

Directions:
  • Make a card base from Ivory Cardstock (8.25" x 5.25")
  • Mat a piece of Cranberry cardstock with patterned Paper and stitch together. Distress all 4 borders.
  • Stamp Cardinal image (twice) in White Cardstock from HCPC 3351 Cardinal With Holly Berries Pre-Cut Set, color them with Copic markers (R24, R29, YG95, YG97). Die-cut Cardinal image using HCD 706 Cardinal Family Die-cut and leaves with HCPC 3340 Holly Leaves Pre-Cut Set.
  • Cut out around Cardinal tale and die-cut and emboss it using Label 8 Nestabilities.
  • Adhere on top of Cardinal the extra Cardinal image using Foam tape. Repeat the same process with leaves.
  • Using HCD 702 Decorative Butterfly-Border Die-cuts, die-cut 4 corners in Gold metallic Cardstock. Position them (2 on top, 2 on the bottom) behind image to create a frame.
  • Stamp sentiment in Cream Natural cardstock in Brown Ink. Die-cut, emboss and stencil using Oval Nestabilities.
  • Adhere frame to card. Add ruffle ribbon on bottom and add sentiment on right bottom side.
  • Finally, adhere to Diamond Glaze on Cardinal and set to dry. After that add some Liquid Pearls on leaves
