Heartfelt Creations Christmas Village

Good morning!

Welcome to another week of inspiration from Heartfelt Creations!
This little deer has just come from Christmas Village and he has a sleigh full of presents for the children down in the valley.
He's very proud of himself today, this is his first time to pull the sleigh
and he can't wait to see the happy faces of all the children.
This is the story for my card today, looks like it doesn't it?

For more tips on creating with the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at

Card size: 6 1/2 X 6 1/2   Cut 1 piece of white 6 1/2 X 6 1/2” and another piece 6 1/2 X 7”, score the 7” side at 1/2" (this will be a tab for gluing the 2 pieces together to make the card base).  Cut a piece of decorative paper 6 X 6” and then cut a 3 1/4” circle in the center.  Cut a piece of Foam Sheet the same size with the circle in the center as well.  (It is always best to let the foam rest after running through the die cutting machine, I usually let rest over-night so that it can go back to its original size and shape, if you glue it before it has time to reform you will warp the panel because it will try to go back to shape but it has been glued, I hope you know what I mean).
When the foam has reformed glue it to the back of the decorative paper and glue it to the card base.  Cut a piece of decorative paper to match the village die then cut a circle for the sky and put them together to form a circle.  Lay it inside the raised panel. Use glue with fine tip to add glitter to trees and roof tops.  Make a circle frame for the opening and also cut 2 Festive Holiday Decorative dies from white to use top and bottom of circle opening and glue.  Stamp Festive Holly & Cardinals and sleigh with reindeer and sleigh extra piece with black Memento ink on white card stock and die cut.  Stamp trees, pine boughs and holly leaves with Fern Green, Stamp pine cones with Rich Cocoa Memento and poinsettias with Magenta Hue.  Sponge holly and pine boughs with Leaf Green, poinsettias with Brilliance Orchid and die cut all.  Color Pine cones, bird and holly, sleigh and reindeer with Copics.   Place poinsettias and holly in the shaping mold (up to 3 deep) mist with water between each set and run through the die cutting machine.  Let dry thoroughly and then make flowers by gluing 2 blossoms together pushing down in the center.  Add one set of holly underneath and then add gold Prills to the center.
Use the snow pen on the pine boughs, pine cones and trees, glitter then heat to puff. Glue the pieces onto the card front starting with the 2 taller trees on the left (add a bit of snow paste at the base of the trees), smaller trees part way up into the circle scene and then the sleigh and reindeer next on top of the tall trees.   Glue the pine boughs on then the holly & Cardinal.  Tuck the pine cones in and then glue poinsettias on.

Thanks for visiting today!

Psalm 148:5 Let every created thing give praise to the Lord,
    for He issued His command, and they came into being.

This is so beautiful - I love everything about it from the gorgeous reindeer and his sleigh to the lace borders and all the foliage, trees and poinsettias.

Oh, Robin, this is a Christmas storybook delight! What a gorgeous village, and all the detail and work are worth every minute! I agree that the sweet little reindeer is darling along with the sleigh filled with presents. The scene is amazing both in the foreground and the background. Amazing! Your work is exquisite, precious friend, and I absolutely love to see how much you truly enjoy making this special gifts "from the heart!" You truly do put your heart into your artwork!
