HC October Release- Italiana Riviera

It's time to slow down the daily pace, take a deep breath and embrace life with the new Heartfelt Creations Italiana Riviera Collection.  We invite you to stroll down the Italian coastline taking in the spectacular seaside views, open markets, and amazing architecture while allowing yourself to relax and get lost in an easy going way of life.  Feel the gentle breeze, breathe in the aromas of salty mist and mouthwatering eats as you pass by a harbor lined with delightful cafes and quaint little shops calling out to you to pause for a visit. Step through towering stone gates to meander through perfectly manicured vineyards boasting rows and rows of coiling vines filled with dense foliage and  plump clusters of exquisitely purple hued grapes.  Then as the sun sets, continue to take in the old world charm and beauty of the area as you relax in your villa, enjoying a glass of fine wine aged to perfection while jotting down all of the days wonderful adventures on an old fashioned postcard, pausing occasionally only to peer out the old stone window that reveals the most surreal view of lush gardens, stately mountains, beautiful flowers and that perfectly manicured vineyard.  At Heartfelt Creations we dismiss the misconceived notion that you are required to leave your craft room to experience the finer things in come along with us as we invite you to explore the charm and elegance of the Italiana Riviera Collection!

Doesn't that just make you want to go on a European vacation? I sure do! My card today sort of encompasses all that the Riviera might offer, and the colors of this collection are nothing short of divine! The sides of my card are made with the new two piece die which is one of the dies in the Italiana Grape Clusters set. There are more of this type of dye coming in the future and I think you'll love them! I certainly hope you enjoy my project for today.

Here's a picture of the card when it is fully open.

Thanks for stopping in today and letting me share this wonderful new collection with you. Be sure to stop in at the Heartfelt Creation Blog for complete instructions for this card, and to see the many samples of this gorgeous collection!

Hugs, Maureen


  1. Oh Maureen, this is soooo romantic and beautiful! I love the card fold, as well as how you've used those new decorative edge border die cuts! I also love the triple pattern strips that you've cut all together to give you decorative pieces in the centre! And then of course there's those stunning roses! Well done, well done!!
