Home is Where the Heart Is


Happy Wednesday! Here's another Heartfelt Creations' card using the Chateau Gate Collection. I think the wood grain stamp from the Window Accents set is so versatile - I'm going to end up using it for a bunch of different designs!

Be sure to check out the Heartfelt Creations blog today - there's a sneak peek of next week's new release! It's a beauty that you'll want to add to your collection for making Easter cards. Plus, you'll need to see all the designs from the team to inspire your creativity!



Note: Finished card size: 5" x 7"

Cut a piece of light green card stock measuring 7" by 10", score at 5", and fold. Tie a triple bow on the peg bow maker, and thread onto a strip of ribbon slightly longer than 7". Mount the ribbon and bow onto the base card with the bow toward the right of the card front.


Cut/emboss a small plain oval from ivory card stock. Stamp the sentiment in brown ink on the ivory die cut. Stamp the wood grain pattern in brown ink on kraft card stock. Cut/emboss an oval that is slightly larger than the ivory oval. Use a sponge to apply brown ink around the edge of the brown oval. Mount the ivory sentiment oval onto the brown oval. Mount the sentiment stack above the bow on the right side of the card front.


Stamp the scene image in brown ink on ivory card stock measuring 3" x 4". Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Grass: YG91, YG93
  • Trees: YG61, YG63
  • Stone wall: W4, E31, E33, E37
  • Path: E13, E15, E19
  • Foreground tree: G29
  • Houses: E70, E71, E74, Y35
  • Sky: B0000, B000

Stamp the wood grain image on kraft card stock in brown ink. Cut it with a deckled blade to measure 4" x 4 3/4". Sponge around the edges with brown ink. Stamp the door image in brown ink onto kraft card stock. Cut/emboss the door image with the matching die. Clip out the center bar from the die cut. Use the sponge to apply brown ink to the decorative adornment around the doors.

Glue the die cut to the wood grain image, and use a craft knife to cut out the opening of the door. Adhere the color image to the back of the door so that it shows through. Cut/emboss leaf die cuts from light green card stock, and sponge with matching green ink. Adhere below the window.

Thanks for stopping by!
