Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Summer is officially here and we're ready to leap right into July!  The last Tueday of the month is set aside for the monthly Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop.  I have used a Heartfelt Creations sympathy stamp and added flowers and leaf flourishes also from Heartfelt Creations.  I kept my design simple (for me).  I love embossing and I think it adds just the right amount of elegance for this card.  If you arrived here from Selma's blog then you are on the right track.  If not, you will want to start at the beginning with Olga's blog so you don't miss any of these beautiful creations!


My card base is Stampin Up Very Vanilla cardstock and I stamped my sentiment, HCPC 3377 on Georgia Pacific cardstock.  The scalloped edge was made with Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Scallop dies.  I used Posy Patch Die HCD 701 and the leaf flourish from the Decorative Layered Basket Die HCD 714 to create my flowers.

Your next stop on the hop if Kerry's blog and she has a gorgeous creation to share with you!  Be sure to leave a comment on every blog you visit while you're hopping because one randomly chosen commenter will win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.  You have until Friday, June 29th at midnight EST to leave your comments.  The winner will be announced Saturday, June 30th at noon,  The winner will need to email Emma Lou with "winner of June Alumni Hop" in subject line.  Here is a complete hop list in case you get lost hoppiing:
