Heartfelt Creations Coneflower Cottage

Good morning!

This little cottage is so sweet I had to make
it the highlight of this card!
Used some various colors of micro beads for the floral
around the house.


This would be perfect for a first house card or house warming, right?




Heartfelt Creations products used:

Other Products: 
Lavender card stock, white card stock, Micro beads, foam tape, Fun Foam, Copic Markers: V01, V12, V15, BV00, BV01, YG61, G82,RV52, RV63

Instructions: 
Card size: 6 ¼  X 6 ¼”  Start with a 6 X 6’ panel featuring the little cottage.  Cut the center out with the Cut Mat Create Die and cut another square the size of the cottage center out of Fun Foam to smoothly pop up the entire center panel.  Glue the Fun Foam to the square center panel and let dry.  Cut a lavender mat for the center square panel.  Cut 2 Sweetheart borders from white and two of the sweetheart border solid bases from white as well.  Cut a lavender mat for the outside of the decorative 6” square (the rest of the 6” panel left after cutting out the center).  Glue the 6 1/8 X 6 1/8” lavender to the card base then glue the outside decorative panel onto the lavender.  Glue the 2 solid Sweetheart borders down onto the decorative paper then glue the 4” square lavender down to the center of the card.  Glue center popped up 4” square center to the lavender mat then add the Sweetheart Borders (you will have to cut away the center portion so that the square nestles in between the 2 Sweetheart Borders. Glue the borders down with the swirly leafy parts on top.
Cut another cottage out of another piece of decorative paper and pop it up over the base cottage.  Add glitter to flower portions of the center square panel and add Micro beads for florals.
Stamp die cut and color Coneflower corner and the single coneflower from Garden’s Edge Coneflowers.  Stamp, die cut and color a blossom from Rain boots & Blossoms.  Stamp the Sunflowers, die cut and sponge color the front and back using Deep Purple and Majestic Violet.  Form the Sunflowers from the back after misting with water.  Pierce the centers and insert stamen (color stamen stems with green ink) from the top and glue in place.  You have to sort of smash the petals down and almost fold the flower in half to get the coneflower look.  Add 3D type glue around stamen to build up centers and add Prills.  Let dry over night or until glue is hard.  Glitter all flower blossoms.  Use glue and foam tape to attach Coneflower corner to left side of popped up center, adding single flower in on the right side.   Cut out sentiment from decorative paper and give it a chevron tail then mat with lavender.   Add it to the card with a bit of a curl.

Thanks for visiting today!

He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”
