This great Best Wishes card was made with components from the Heartfelt Creations card kit package for the Under the Sea collection and a few other items from my “stash.”
I can’t say enough good things about the kits Heartfelt Creations has started producing for their collections. Not sure if you want to invest in the various stamps and dies of a collection? These kits are a great introduction to the types of projects you could create. Their only downfall, in my opinion, is that they are only available for a limited time–just during the initial release month of that particular collection or while supplies last. (Some of the kits have been known to sell out within just a couple of days of their release!)
The kits come complete with enough card blanks, die-cuts, pre-cut patterned paper, and stamped elements to make at least four cards. Use your favorite coloring medium and adhesive to complete the projects, and you are good to go! All levels of cardmakers, from beginner to expert, can produce beautiful results with these kits in a very short amount of time. It’s no wonder they sell out so quickly!
For this particular card, I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and Memento Cantaloupe, Blue Danube, and Bamboo Leaves to color the flowers and leaves. Cantaloupe, Blue Danube, Teal Zeal, and Picked Raspberry were used on the fish. (I blended the Picked Raspberry and Cantaloupe to create the peachy/coral color on the tip of the tail. “Gourd-Jus” Prills (also available from Heartfelt Creations in the Rock N’ Roll set) were added to the centers and stamen of the flowers with glue, and I also added glitter to the tips of the flower petals for a little extra bling.
The inside of the card was completed with a piece cut from the Under the Sea Collection paper pack and the Life is Art stamp from Stampendous.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project!
