Heartfelt-Foam Paper Flowers Debut

Good morning!
Woohoo, look what we have at Heartfelt Creations, yup, foam paper!  This stuff is amazing!  You heat it and shape it.
This first card is a shaped card inspired by our very own Liz Gaze!  If you have never seen one of her videos you should take a look at the video link I have below.  She is adorable!

Instructions: Other products:  Cactus StazOn, Wilted Violet Distress Ink, Citron Distress Ink, Linen Seam Binding, White Linen card stock, White Neenah smooth, Fun Foam, glue gun.

Instructions: Card size approximately 5 1/4 X 5 1/4".  Cut white card stock 5 1/2" X 11", fold in half and place decorative die outline on one side with the top corner hanging over the fold so that it doesn't cut the top all the way out (see Lis Gaze's tutorial on shaped cards).  Place the top plate up to but not over the straight side of die so the it does not cut the center of the card and then run it through your die cutting machine.  Turn the die around and cut the other side the same way.  The bottom will need a bit of trimming between bottom scallops, it should look similar to the top folded edge. Now cut a purple panel the same way to match and glue it to the folded card.  Die cut the inside part of the decorative die twice from white and glue to purple panel. Cut Scallop edge circle from decorative Classic Petunia paper and another smaller circle from same paper. Cut a piece of Fun Foam to fit smaller circe to pop up.  Cut out and chevron the ends of My Wish For You (from Classic Petunia Paper). Use Vibrant Violet Stazon to stamp Enchanted Mums on the Art Foam Paper and die cut then sponge on Wilted Violet to color.  Use Cactus StazOn to stamp Wildwood Florals on Art Foam Paper and die cut (no extra color was added).  Die seam binding to match for bow, scrunch up and let dry.  Use your heat gun to heat foam mums which will cause them to curl upward, use your hand to cup it after heating to help with the cupping action to form your mums using several layers (a glue gun works best for gluing the foam together).  Punch a small whole in the center of layered flower and insert stamen. Heat Wildwood foam flowers and shape each petal by twisting and pinching. Layer and add small pastel stamen. Stamp Dogwood leaves using Bamboo Leaves Memento and coloring with New Sprout Memento Ink, form and add to flower arrangement.  Add light green pearls and glittered dragon fly (from Enchanted Mums).  Make a bow and add to top of card.

Romans 12:2

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
How do you transform your mind?  By reading and studying God's Word the Bible.  By NOT watching what is evil and watching what is good, (you will know what is good and acceptable in the sight of God when you read and study His Word) by not speaking evil but speaking life into other people, encouraging, uplifting, doing good unto others. Being thankful and praying always.
