It is new collection day at Heartfelt Creations, and today I have a card to share with you using this awesome range called Italiana Riviera.
It's time to slow down the daily pace, take a deep breath and embrace life with the new Heartfelt Creations Italiana Riviera Collection. We invite you to stroll down the Italian coastline taking in the spectacular seaside views, open markets, and amazing architecture while allowing yourself to relax and get lost in an easy going way of life. Feel the gentle breeze, breathe in the aromas of salty mist and mouthwatering eats as you pass by a harbour lined with delightful cafes and quaint little shops calling out to you to pause for a visit. Step through towering stone gates to meander through perfectly manicured vineyards boasting rows and rows of coiling vines filled with dense foliage and plump clusters of exquisitely purple hued grapes. Then as the sun sets, continue to take in the old world charm and beauty of the area as you relax in your villa, enjoying a glass of fine wine aged to perfection while jotting down all of the days wonderful adventures on an old fashioned postcard, pausing occasionally only to peer out the old stone window that reveals the most surreal view of lush gardens, stately mountains, beautiful flowers and that perfectly manicured vineyard. At Heartfelt Creations we dismiss the misconceived notion that you are required to leave your craft room to experience the finer things in life...so come along with us as we invite you to explore the charm and elegance of the Italiana Riviera Collection!
Here is my favourite part of this new collection. I do love that it is purple, which would normally be my favourite part, but check out this gorgeous border die that comes with it! It comes in two parts meaning that you can cut the intricate die in one colour, and then a background in another, or both the same as I have done for my project this week, which I think creates a really elegant look. This would be so nice in metallic yardstick on wedding invitations.
There is no flower stamp and die with this collection, so I have created these cabbage roses uses the Botanical Wings set.
So many beautiful projects on the blog this week. Be sure to check them out, along with a video from Emma Lou with some tips on how best to cut the border die that I have used here.
