Purple Roses and Lilacs

This was one of the first Gatefold cards I made. This uses Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac paper collection, one of their gateway dies (which I layered three deep to get the dimension) and a purple “rose” that I fashioned from an old generic punch.

The inside features the bird cage, which I believe came from the same collection, and a tiny bluebird, which I believe I stole from their Cherry Blossom collection. Heartfelt Creations has so many beautiful papers and dies, I’m sorry if I get them mixed up, but they all coordinate very nicely together.

More Peonies!

I’m loving the HFC Sweet Peony papers! Such a beautiful shade of pink, and it is so versatile, you can make cards for any occasion – from Sympathy to Anniversary! This first card has a “hidden” large tag for a little letter to the recipient.

The second one has a magnet holding the flowers on to the card. it was very simple & easy to put together. The hardest part was deciding which of the beautiful papers to use!
