Using the sponge apply glue to all the edges and
cover with frosting powder. Die cut the die from the Window Box 
Elements Die set, stamp the sentiment in black ink and die cut with 
the Cut Mat Create die. Apply glue to both die cuts and frosting powder.
Adhere both die cuts with 3D foam pads to the card. Stamp the poinsettia flowers 
and color with the Berrylicous ink for the flowers and Bamboo Leaves 
for the holly. Shape using the flower shaping kit, apply glue 
over the petals and frosting powder and adhere prills to the centres of the flowers.

Sparkly Christmas Shoes & Tutorial

Join me LIVE on Heartfelt Creations Facebook page today at 3pm UK time
for some crafty fun making these two gorgeous sparkly shoes and
vellum poinsettias!

Don't worry if you miss it you can still watch!

The show above was made to look like it had been walking in snow,
I am just loving the Frosting Powder to make snowy effects with!
I can see there will be lots more projects with this on!! lol!

For this card I used a technique inspired from Emma Lou using the
stamps from the Festive Holly collection and lots of glitter and glass shards!
I made the shoe sparkly and left the flower not!

Here is a quick tutorial on how I made sparkly vellum poinsettias that
were inspired by designer Patricia Manhire. You can see her beautiful project HERE.

I used paper from the Festive Holly paper pad and decoupaged up the pattern
on the heel. I did think this would make and amazing winter wedding card!

Here is how I made the beautiful flowers:

Step 1: Stamp the flowers on vellum and heat emboss with a gold embossing powder.
Die cut the flowers with the coordinating die.

Step 2: Colour the backs of the flowers with red ink.

Step 3: From the back shape the petals using the flower shaping tool.
Turn them over and press down in the centre to raise the petals.

Step 4: Using a sponge apply glue gently over the petals and cover
with the Crystal Clear powder.

Step 5: Adhere prills to the flower centres.

Use your sparkly flowers on your Christmas projects and have fun!
Make sure you share your projects with us on the Heartfelt Facebook page 
we love to see what you make too!
