It's time for a Heartfelt Creations project, today I have this card showcasing their new Decorative Window Scene die, but instead of designing my window with an outdoor scene, I created an indoor scene by using the Heartfelt Creations' Blue Spruce stamp and adding some glitter and 3D paint to it for ornaments, I added lots of yellow and orange distress ink to create a warm and welcoming image, I wanted the card to give the impression of you standing outside a window looking into a beautiful, warm, and festive Christmas filled room. Don't forget to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog for tons of fantastic project ideas.
