Heartfelt Inspiration

Hi! Guten Morgen! (I’m in Berlin, practicing my German :)) I’m here to share my first projects this term for Heartfelt Creations. I got some yummy Asters stamps and dies AND gorgeous papers to create my Semi Finalist projects with and this is what I did:
Accordion 1
First up is an Accordion card/mini album. I’m really pleased with how this one came out. The Aster flower is so much fun to make, I used two colors in my layers to get some action going. Everything stamped is heat embossed with copper embossing powder.
