Christmas Tree Gatefold 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.

This Gatefold card has the most beautiful Christmas Tree as the main feature.

This is a larger card and will need a bigger envelope, but I think I will just leave it on top of a present, under the ribbon bow. Why would I want to enclose it in an envelope, right?!!!

Storybook Gnomes Fancy Fold

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.

My fancy fold design today was inspired by a card I received for my birthday recently, from fellow team member, Caroline Manwaring. She used the Butterfly Kisses Suite.

For my card, I’m using the Storybook Gnomes Suite. My card base is Pool Party and the matt layers are Pacific Point. The Storybook Gnomes patterned papers have loads of different patterns, some of which can be cut using the coordinating Gnomes dies.

The sentiment is from the Brightest Glow stamp set. The image below shows how the card folds to be displayed. (I think I need to change my blade on my trimmer too, those edges are a little untidy)!

On the back I placed a Basic White panel over some more DSP. The mushroom image was cut from the DSP. I always keep these images that are on the sides of the paper and only half the image, a they are handy for decorating like this!

Torn card technique

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.

Today’s card is actually very simple to create. You just need some cardstock, patterned paper, glue and a stamp/ink for the greeting, oh and some embellishments if you wish!

Starting with a Thick Basic White card base with layers of Real Red and Basic White, each 5mm smaller than the previous one. Starting with the Real Red layer, carefully tear the cardstock two thirds of the way across the card. Repeat this with the White layer, but make the starting points slightly larger than the Real Red one. Once you are happy with these, glue the Red & White layers together. (many people only do a single layer of the torn cardstock, but I wanted a white base and top layer to stamp on).

Torn Card Technique by Kate Morgan, Stampin Up Australia 2022

Now it’s time for some patterned paper to fit behind the torn section. I actually glued the Boughs of Holly designer paper to the back of the layers so I knew it was positioned correctly. Glue these layers to your card base. I actually cut out these two pieces and rolled up the white section only to form the scroll. I tied some Garden Green Ribbon around the scroll and glued it back onto the card. Finally, stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink and add some Iridescent Rhinestones Jewels.

On the inside, I stamped two more sentiments from the same Brightest Glow stamp set!

Diamond Christmas Tree

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.

Now here’s a different style Christmas card, using diamonds to create the Christmas tree!

Diamond Christmas Tree card using Stampin Up Lights Aglow SDSP by Kate Morgan, Australia 2022

This card is a 5″ x 5″ square design and I added an extra panel to the front which the diamonds are adhered to (the join is behind the patterned papers). The sentiment (Brightest Glow) is stamped in Versamark ink, Gold Emboss Powder added and set using the Heat Tool. Using Paper Snips, I cut the banners at each end. I added this with Black Dimensionals.

Sweetest Christmas Candy Canes

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.

Today’s card I’ve gone with the more traditional Christmas colours; Real Red, Garden Green and White with a touch of Gold!

The Sweetest Christmas Designer Series Paper features heavily in this card. I fussy cut the candy canes from the paper with Paper Snips.  Another piece of the DSP is added across the centre of the Real Red card base.

A Basic White square is die cut (Stylish Shapes dies) and embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. This is glued to the card with Tombo Multipurpose Glue. Some Specialty Gold Trim is added with a glue dot placed in the centre of the square. A 2cm strip of Distressed Gold Specialty Paper is added across the bottom of the DSP before the candy canes are added on dimensionals

To finish off, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto Garden Green card, White Emboss Powder added and melted with the Heal Tool. This was cut using the banner from the Stylish Shapes dies and added with dimensionals. A strip of DSP is added to the inside panel insert.
