Hi everyone, are you ready for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration!!! Here is my card for today. I have used some of the new images from the "My Guy" collection, don't you love these images. For the background I used the "Basketweave Background" image, I stamped it all over the paper and added some shading with vintage photo distress ink.

Stamp image from "Western Collage" set 6 times on white cardstock, color with markers and Prismacolor pencils, base image cut and emboss with large die from "Standard Circles Small" set, before removing image from die, slightly ink edge with distress ink. On the other 5 images, I cut different areas to create the dimensional image, using a embossing tool slightly shape all the cut pieces, adhere with pop dots or liquid dimensional adhesive. Cut a circle from dark brown cardstock using the large die from Standard Circles Large and mat the stamped image. Cut two "Decorative Window" shapes and trim off the smaller half of the diecut, cover with crackle paint, glue to back of stamped image. Stamp sentiment from "Western Sentiments" set on white cardstock with black ink, color with markers and Prismacolor pencils, shade slightly with distress ink, mat with brown cardstock.
