The Heart of Christmas - Week 4



Welcome to week 4 of sharing some Christmas inspiration with you, from members of the Art with Heart Team.

Yes it really is week 4 already - be careful not to blink! 😉

 My card this week is simple in design but has a lot of Christmas sparkle.


I just love the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and coordinating punch, it is so cute!


 I've made a Crumb Cake base and layered with Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. If you l-o-v-e your glimmer paper and can't see yourself using such a big piece, I'm sure this card would look just as gorgeous with some DSP instead. The card size is 12" x 4-1/4" and scored in half @ 6". I stamped the reindeer in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake and just the nose section onto Real Red and fussy cut it out for my Rudolph.


I made the little Christmas bouquet using the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies and tied together with a piece of Linen Thread and attached to the card with a Glue Dot. I've added even more sparkle to the antlers with Wink of Stella.


Inside the card, I stamped - "Have yourself a Merry Christmas". The sentiment has the word 'beary' in it but I just masked that off and centred the wording when stamping.
 Because it's a photopolymer stamp it was easy to line up. I really enjoyed making this fun card and I love the result.

Be sure to check out Claire's blog to see who else has created some Christmas inspiration for you this week.

Until next time...
