Heat Embossed Card with Heartfelt Creation's Birds and Bloom Collection

Posted by Rajni Chawla

Hello all...!! 

Hope you all had a great weekend and a great start of new week. Today I am here with quite a neat and simple card that I created when I was not well. Sitting on the bed and not allowed to enter the craft room for nearly 10 days ...nothing worst than that could be for any crafter. Still I managed to paint few images. Since I was not allowed to do fussy cutting those days, this was done by my daughter Srishti. Though I have not taught her anything but she is master in many. She can cut much much better than what I do. My bad luck...she crafts only if I m not there in craft room and prefers to do only for her friends. 

For this card I chose two of the stamps from Heartfelt Creation's Birds And Blooms Collection. The one is the background stamp (Birds and Blooms Collage Cling Stamp ) and other has beautiful birdies and flowers ( Fluffy Birdies Cling Stamp ) 

Here is the final result. 

The background is simply heat embossed using Versamark ink and white heat embossing powder on vellum sheet. And the stamped image is painted using peeled paint, barn door, vintage photo and brushed corduroy distress inks. Few images on the vellum background were also painted with same shades of distress inks. 

After painting the image it is fussy cut using Xacto knife. Many of you liked my fussy cutting and asked me what scissors or cutters I use for fussy cutting. I work with simple Xacto knife and Parchment scissors. I have tried many cutters but found these best till date. Plastic body cutters don't work  for me as I often use 220 gsm card stock for painting. Its difficult to put more pressure on plastic body cutters as they break very easily. Yes...for thinner papers of-course they work very well as it needs less pressure. 

Here is the more closer look of the image. I have used Glamour dust dry glitter using art glitter adhesive glue which dries clear.  The heat embossed vellum is layered on pattern paper from Birds and Blooms Collection itself. The white ring is cut out by nesting 2 circle dies together on white card stock. 

Though I hardly make clean and simple cards but I really loved making this one. Birds and flowers have always been my weakness. Hope you too liked this card.
