Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Hello everyone on this glorious sunny Wednesday morning.....well it is here in East Anglia UK so I hope you are all getting to enjoy some too:)
Being Wednesday it is time for myself and the rest of the Heartfelt Creations Design Team to share our creations with you, So if you are looking for some inspiration please hop on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog HERE
I am sharing another card using the Bicycle, but this time the bicycle is printed on the panel from the paper collection.
With this card  I have cut out a panel leaving one side attached to make a kind of door which is hiding a hidden sentiment.
Here you can see the card with the panel door closed:

In this picture you can see the panel door slightly open:

Finally in this picture you can see the hidden sentiment:
Something just a little bit different today:)
Cream card blank, dusky pink polka dot embossed card, black card, decorative pearls on string, decorative pearl button, dusky pink organza ribbon, vintage postcard charm, Stickles Glitter - pink Taffeta, adhesive, foam pads, Versa Magic ink - Pink Petunia
Begin with a cream card base measuring 6 3/4 x 6 3/4" square. Matte a piece of black card onto the base card measuring 6 1/4" square using foam pads. Cut the bicycle panel out from the paper collection and cut the outer border away to give you a panel measuring just under 5 1/2" square. Adhere this to some dusky pink polka dot embossed card measuring 6" square. Using a knife cut out the inner panel, leaving the right hand side. Use a score board to score along the right hand side so that it opens nicely. Adhere this to the main card using foam pads. Die cut out the decorative circle from the Raindrops on Roses die set in the pink polka dot embossed card. Cut this in half and adhere to the top of the inner panel. Add the decorative pearls on string around the inner opening panel and along the top of the decorative circle die. Make a small double bow with the dusky pink organza ribbon and adhere with a strong adhesive to the right hand side of the opening panel (this is what will be used to open the door). Add a decorative pearl button and the postcard charm. Die cut out the Discover tag using the co-ordinating die and add this to the top of the bow at an angle. Die cut out another decorative circle in the dusky pink card and adhere this to the inside of the panel door. Stamp and die cut out the sentiment The World and adhere this to the centre of the decorative circle. You can if you wish decorate the inside of the card with co-ordinating paper and card. To finish add a little Stickles glitter.
I hope like my card today:)
I will be back tomorrow with another card and another BLOG CANDY giveaway:)
Take care everyone and enjoy the rest of your day:) x

  24. Hi Nikki, Another stunning card, I'm loving the hidden sentiment behind the door, genius !! Beautiful colours too.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  25. Hi Nikki. Love all of this collection. Have managed to catch up eith your shows and you did great.
    Ive done something similar to this in the past but stuck a smaller card onto a matted 8/8 card, like a card on a card so you have a top card with the 'main' card beneath, am I making any sense at all ?! But have never thought of doing it this way, must try it. I also attatch a tiny small scollop card to the top of a larger card which is opened by a ribbon, so you have a nice decorated large card with a contrasting tiny card with a small stamped sentiment,inside the tiny card or a hidden message, to reveal untie the bow and I think this new set is made for different shape cards etc.
    Hoping you all manage to have a relaxing, creative long Easter break.
    Hugs to all.
