Debuting the Camelia Carnation Collection

Beautifully ruffled in delicate layers and commonly gifted to express love, fascination, and distinction, the carnation flower is certainly recognizable and a floral garden and arrangement favorite. Thought to be one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world, the carnation is traditionally associated with the Mother’s Day holiday, but is also known to be a wonderful choice for birthdays, weddings and just because occasions. With an outstanding reputation as a cut flower, and an amazing array of colors and sizes, it is no wonder that the carnation flower remains so popular today! Heartfelt Creations invites you to celebrate the beauty and gentle humbleness of the carnation with the Camelia Carnation Collection! With a color palette of fiery reds, pastel pinks, sunset orange tones, and lush hues of greens, the gorgeous paper collection brings with it a bold but feminine feel. Filled with attractive carnations clusters, exquisite flower gardens, and decorative lace like details, this pretty paper collection is sure to become a perennial favorite. Two cling stamp sets and coordinating dies come together to create enamoring and realistic carnation blossoms with delicately illustrated details and varying sized petals ideal for assembling full sized carnation flowers to charming mini versions, while a third cling stamp set lends itself perfectly to layering and creating dimensional carnation clusters. So join with us as we celebrate and give recognition to the traditional, but somewhat overlooked and under praised carnation flower!

Instructions: Prepare a card base of 5 x 7" and layer it with a piece of Black cardstock 1/4 inch smaller all the way around. Place a piece of the Camelia Carnation Paper on top 1/4 inch smaller.
Cut another piece of black cardstock and layer another piece of the Camelia Carnation paper on that making it 3 3/4 x 5 3/4". Using some of the scraps cut a piece 1 x 6 1/6" and adhere all on the card base. Using the Circle dies cut 3 from the large out of black and 3 out of the Camelia Carnation, layer and adhere on card base as shown. Stamp the leaves and flowers on white cardstock with the Tuxedo Black. Cut out with the matching die, color leaves with the Pistachio and the flowers with the Pink passion. Using the floral mold, shape the flowers, put 3 together making one flower and adhere to card. Shape the leaves and arrange behind the flowers. Stamp the sentiment on white with the black ink, use the cut mat create die cut out, add D-Dots and adhere to card.
To finish add Crystal Clear on leaves and flowers, add White Nuvo drops to the center of each flower and around the circles and 2 of the corners as shown.
