Celebrating Your Special Day with the Flowering Dogwood Collection.

Kia Ora and Welcome

Just a quick post to show a card that I made just before Easter.  This card was made for a friend’s mother for Mother’s Day using the beautiful Flowering Dogwood Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Jackie was so thrilled with the card that she wrote this for me:

I absolutely love the design, quality of materials and exceptional workmanship Patrica used when creating a handmade card for my Mum. It was a pleasure to have someone turn my vague ideas into a beautiful piece of art my Mum proudly displays in her home. I know exactly where I am coming back to see when I need more handcrafted cards – Patrica at Gift Hutt!

I enjoy the challenge of making custom designs for customers.  And it always gives me pleasure when eyes light up when they see what I have made for them.  I have also had some recipients of my cards come and see me to say thank you and that the cards are always on display because they love the cards so much.  That means so much to me knowing that my artwork is being loved and appreciated.

I couldn’t do this without the gorgeous products from Heartfelt Creations and I am so grateful that I have their beautiful products to work with to bring light and love to people’s lives.

When I first saw these papers the first thing I thought of was a wedding gazebo and I was able to source an SVG file from Monica’s Creative Room here: http://monicascreativeroom.se/about/. Monica has a range of amazing gazebos and it was hard to choose from but I am happy with the one I have chosen.  The Classic Roses were just perfect for decorating the gazebo along with the lovely hearts from the Classic Wedding Collection.  And of course the dove from the Flowering Dogwood Collection set off the gazebo perfectly.
