Christmas Season Holiday card

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

The products used for this card, Christmas Season stamp set and the Seasonal Labels dies carried over from last year’s July-December mini catalogue into the 2022-2023 Annual catalogue. I’m so happy they did, as they were one of my favourites last year.

My card base is Shaded Spruce with a layer of Boughs of Holly DSP. Before gluing this to the card base, I felt it needed a little more class, so I die cut a piece of Distressed Gold Specialty paper with the largest Deckled Rectangle die and placed it behind.

While I was die cutting the Gold paper, I also cut some of the foliage. The pine cones are stamped in Soft Suede ink onto the same colour card. the pine needles stamp is in Evening Evergreen. I added a piece of vellum die cut with one of the label dies behind the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Trimming the Tree stamp set. This is popped up on dimensionals with some In Color Twine behind.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Very Best Occasions stamp set.

  1. Great card Kate! You were right, that extra layer of Distressed Gold is a perfect addition between the base and the DSP. I love that you have picked it up again for some of the foliage. Lovely balance of elements!

  2. Kate, you’ve picked up the colour and images from this gorgeous DSP so perfectly in your dies. The vellum label die behind the sentiment is such a lovely touch too. Beautiful card using my fave DSP too!
