Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

A very good Wednesday to you all....although we have rain where I am today:( Another reason why I can spend the day in my craft room:) Hubby is having a lads day out on a track day, I did all my housework last night before I went to bed so that today I could craft away with out any guilt...hehe.
Don't you just enjoy crafting much more when you have know distractions!
Today I have 2 Heartfelt Creations cards to share with you.
The first is what I would call maybe a little over the top, but I really just wanted to show you how the dies can be used:

Winter Wonderland


Winter Wonderland

Begin by die cutting all of your die shapes that you will need: 4 large snowflakes and 4 small snowflakes, 1x med/lge and 1x sml/med grand labels One in your chosen blue patterned paper from the collection,  2x lge Decorative Labels Twenty-Two (one white and one blue), 1x sml/med Timeless Rectangle in blue card, 1x tag from the Fancy Framed Tags Two die set, 2x Decorative Oval Windows,6 x Trees.
Stamp the Christmas Scene using the Memento ink and heat emboss with clear sparkle embossing powder onto the white Decorative Labels Twenty-Two that you cut out earlier.  Do the same with the sentiment, but stamp onto the label that you die cut.

Adhere blue card stock to the front of the base card and stamp and heat emboss with clear sparkle embossing powder the holly swirls.

Cut the trees into individual segments which will then become the decorative corners on the card.

Cut the Decorative Ovals Windows in half.  You are now ready to assemble your card as in picture, using some foam pads to the smaller Decorative Labels One to add dimension. The Decorative Oval Windows that you cut in half intertwine onto the corners of the  Decorative Labels One.

Once you have assembled your card, you are now ready to put the finishing touches: add Rhinestone Sparklers, gems, glitter, and snow dust. If you wish you can decorate the inside of the card.

 My second card I think I would describe as a little Victorian and quite regal:
