I have two projects to show you today.  The first is a card I created that could easily be used as a Sympathy or First Holy Communion card.  Instead of using the die to cut, I decided to emboss it onto white cardstock.  I went for a monochromatic look and mounted the focal panel onto Soft Stone cardstock from PTI.  I also die cut the flowers from a combination of white and Soft Stone cardstock.

The center cross is also cut from Soft Stone and if you notice a little shimmer, it's because I sponged some Inka Gold - Silver onto the flowers and the cross, as well as the embossed panel.  I then added adhesive pearls to the center of the cross and to the centers of the flowers.

My second project is an altered acrylic frame.  For this project, I stamped and colored the gorgeous cross from the Cross and Lilies stamp set and then used a nestabilities oval to cut it out.  For the background, I used a brayer to ink up the inside of an embossing folder to create that two-toned embossed look.   This would also be perfect for a Communion, Confirmation or Wedding photo and yes, that adorable little princess is my daughter.

You can see the full instructions on the Heartfelt Creations Blog along with some beautiful projects created by the other members of the Design Team.  Be sure to head over there and don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win the entire collection!
