Posted by Rajni Chawla

Hello all....

"Participate in your dreams today. There are unlimited opportunities available with each new day. Take action on those wonderful dreams you've had in your mind for so long. Remember, success is something you experience when you act accordingly.” 

Here I am with my next project with a wonderful day card. Hope a gift of new day is always devine  for you all. 


Heartfelt Creation supplies used :-

Other supplies used :-

Die cutting machine, Spellbinders Wonkey rectangles die, Spellbinders Fancy Lattice die, Spellbinders 5"x7" Mystical Embrace die, spellbinders Fancy Tag 2, fussy cutting scissors, clear rock candy glitter, Elezabeth double sided adhesive sheet, glue, glue dots, seamed binding ribbon, 3 shades of distress inks Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves, Scattered Strw, Peeled Paint and Aged Mohaghany, Plum And black archival inks. 

Instuctions :- 

Front panel of the card :- 

I have used Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die as a base for the front panel of my flip fold card booklet.Mat a diecut with designer paper from Cascading Fuschia Collection and fussy cut neatly. Cut out two frames using spellbinders Wonkey rectangle and adhere elezabeth craft double sided adhesive sheet in between. Sprinkle clear rock candy glitter and dust extra. Burnish a little with your fingers for extra shine.Don't forget to chk the close-ups pics of the same. I promise you will fall in love with these. 

Layered flower :- 

For the main focal image stamp the image from HFC Fuchsia Cluster 6 times. Visualize the image , paint separate parts of the image taking the complete image as your first layer and top leaves and sepals of the flowers as final layer. Adhere all the layers with glue dots. You can use any medium to color the image. I have used various shades of distress inks like Spun Sugar, worn lipstic and Picked Raspberry for flowers and Peeled paint, Scattered Straw and Aged Mohaghany for leaves. 

Card base :- 

For the card base I have used 7" x 21" panel from HFC Pocket and HFC Flip Fold Inserts B - White kit. I adhered an extra panel of 6 1/4" to the back and kept it open from the top so that it can be used as an  additional  pocket to hold larger pictures. A die cut from HC Regal and Pocket die is attached on the top of the tag which can hold 2 pictures. All the inside panels are layered with HFC CascadingFuchsia  Designer Pattern Papers. . I have added an extra dimensions to the front fold of the album with fussy cut images from the designer paper itself. 

3 -dimentional Fuschia flowers : 

 I have  made these flowers using HC Fuschia cling stamp and HFC Cascading Fucshia die. The images are first stamped with plum archival ink and then aligned to cut through cutting machine using Cascading Fuschia die. For full instructions on how to shape Fuschias follow Emma Lou Beechy's video HERE.  

Ribbon : 

Squeesh Seedless Preserves and Spun Sugar Distress Inks on the craftsheet, roll seemed binding ribbon, mist it with water and heat set it. Adhere the ribbon below front fold panel in the front and below the back panel. 

Here is the card how it looks from the front. 

This pucture shows the complete detailing of different layered Fuschias. Little patience and practice can make you get these results. I have adhered readymade pollens in between the layers. Also chk the beauty of clear rock candy glitter layer in between the diecut layers. 
I promise its more beautiful if seen in person. 

Top view showing all the dimensions. 

A fussy cut layer from the designer paper is adding extra dimensions behind 3D Fuschias. 
Oh....I love these. 

Few more pics to show you all the layers that I have created to the top panel  and between top panel and front fold of the booklet. 
Yes...I love my fussy cutting and love doing it too. 

The butterfly and the sentiments are fussy cut from designer paper itself and are adhered using glue dots. 

Here is the pic to show how it opens. 
Did you notice something ??
I have adhered an extra half die cut of Mystical Embrace on the back of the top panel. Its adding an extra neatness on the back of my card too :) That's something that I never avoid. 
On the inside pages I have attached die cuts from Fleur Borders and Pocket Dies To hold extra photo mats. 

The inside 3" panel has 2tags hanging down with a natural colour twine. 

Few more close-up shots!!
