Heartfelt Creations April Release - Everyday Heroes

Hi HC fans,
Here I am presenting the new release project. I am so so happy to see this collection. It is unique and colors of the paper is just adorable. Stamps and Dies are so useful and really well designed.
Do you have an unsung hero in your life? Your champion may never have a medal pinned to his or her chest, but you can demonstrate your gratitude with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations. These epic stamps, dies and papers salute the extraordinary "ordinary people" who inspire us as they live their daily lives with honor and integrity. Greys, teals, khakis, creams and browns have been blended with distressed newsprint, vintage maps, globes, sailing ships, timepieces, combat boots, stripes, dots and flourishes to create a rugged, paper collection that is timeless in its appeal. Six deeply etched cling stamp sets featuring detailed collages, inspiring sentiments and unique circular elements mesh perfectly with the paper collection and matching set of dies. Let's sing the praises of the unsung heroes in our lives with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations!

Here is the Tri-fold card I made using one of the beautiful collections, which is new release called, Everyday Heroes. I am in love with the colors, graphics, stamps and dies from this one. It is amazingly beautiful. I am sure after seeing all the DT inspirational projects you will want one.

Here are the HC products :
HCDP1 253 Everyday Hero Paper Collection
HCPC 3665 Everyday Hero Newsprint Cling Stamps
HCPC-3667 You Inspire Me Cling Stamp Set
159723 - Art Institute Glue - Dries Clear
Other Products : Crochet Lace, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Blue Distress Ink, Flat Back pearls, Light blue and Brown cardstock

Instructions : This is very simple Tri-Fold card. 
This open card measure 11"X6" and close will be 5" X 6". Basic card stock cut in to 11"X6" and score on 3" and 5". 

For inside flaps I got two 2 3/4" brown color card stock and stamped with one of the stamp which is kind of Mixed Media type stamp. It looks so awesome as a background. 
For main middle panel I have used one piece of brown paper measures, 4 3/4" X 5 3/4" as a backing for this beautiful designer paper. I have distressed all the brown papers with Tim Holtz distress in in vintage photo and designer papers in blue color. I stamped one of the really meaningful stamp on the side of the design. 

For outside I have created panel using brown paper and one of the 6x6 designer paper from the collection.
To close this card I created this beautiful band using one of the graphic from 12X12 paper. I fussy cut the banner and used spellbinders die-cut to give the backing for this beautiful decorative frame. On sides I have used some crochet lace to give chic look and make the band bit more strong. Used some flat back pearls around the decorative frame.

I hope you will find this card simple and elegant. These papers makes everything easy and pretty without putting so much efforts.
Thank you!
