Welcome to Week 19 of The Heart of Christmas: Handmade Inspiration from the Art with Heart team!
My project today uses the Painted Harvest & Christmas Pines stamp sets to create this Christmas card!
Look at me using Always Artichoke, a colour I very rarely use…. in fact, I think it is the 2nd time ever, that it’s been opened and you know what, I actually don’t mind it for a Christmas colour!
I have stamped the sunflower image in Always Artichoke, and twice with Old Olive. The berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. How pretty is that coordinating double stitched ribbon bow?!!! So pretty!
The Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder just finishes this card off perfectly. I just love that added texture.
I love how versatile our stamp sets can be. Who would have thought to use a sunflower image for a Christmas wreath?!!! Not me…. but there are plenty of amazingly creative people out there on Pinterest who inspired me.
The full product list is provided at the end of the post!
I hope you have enjoyed my Heart of Christmas post and I look forward to sharing more Christmas inspiration with you next Wednesday! If you would like to see what others in our team have created, you can view the participant list over on the blog of our leader, Claire Daly.

Kate your card is so lovely. I was going to try the sunflower as a wreath too – yours has turned out beautifully. And I love that Cherry Cobbler ribbon too, it’s one of my favourites. I’m with you on not using Always Artichoke often, if at all, but it really is a great colour on this card. 🙂
Love how you have used the painted harvest for a Christmas card Kate and the colours you put together are gorgeous too, they work well for a Christmas wreath!
Kate you should use old artichoke more often, the colours in this card are so elegant!
It’s great to be able to use Painted Harves t for Christmas too.
Such a pretty christmas card Kate, I have not been a big fan of Always Artichoke but the way you put it all together and the embossing really makes a beautiful card. xx
