Welcome to Week 17 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!
My project today uses the At Home with You stamp set, the coordinating At Home Framelit dies and the Detailed Gate Thinlits die to create this Bridge Fold Christmas card!
I started by die cutting the gate in the new Champagne Foil sheet and I was surprised how gorgeous it was. Then I had to come up with a card to use it on… and because it is quite wide, I thought it was perfect for using on a bridge fold card, but I had to come up with a solution to make it sturdy and solid, so I added some Window Sheet behind the detailed gate and because it is clear, you don’t see it! Winner!!!
I love the red front door with the Christmas wreath on it, I think it really pops behind the front gate! I’ve really tried to set the theme here with the gorgeous front gate and looking through to the front door of the house!

What a fantastic card Kate! It’s absolutely stunning! I love the champagne foil gate and great idea with the window sheet. 🙂
Oh Kate this is fantastic and simply stunning!, You can not tell from the photo that you have a window sheet behind the gate, definitely winning there! It is gorgeous!
Your card is simply stunning Kate, love the colours you chose its so elegant, you almost feel like you could walk up to the gate and open it. xx
Fabulous card, Kate. Love the rich colours you’ve used.
Wow Kate, I love this card and you’re so clever to use the window sheet behind the gate.
