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.

I have lots of patterned papers on this fancy fold card and I love all the metallic foil highlights on them; Boughs of Holly DSP, Lights Aglow SDSP, Metallic & Shimmer SDSP and the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. I’m not sure if you can tell that there is some Vellum behind the windows on the caravan?!

When you open the front panel you have this spanner effect. The sentiment and die cut circles (Stylish Shapes dies) are 1 size smaller than the ones of the front of the card; this is so they hide neatly behind the top layer.

Then open the centre panel to reveal the next layer for your message. I have used the Wink of Stella on the Holly leaves and added Pearlized Enamel Effects in red for the berries. Both sentiments (Very Best Occasion stamp set) are stamped in Evening Evergreen ink.
