The Heart Of Christmas - Week 2

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

I don’t know how your week has been but mine has been quite hectic so I am going to love having this weekly get together with you to do a Christmas card.

As you know our time at the end of the year only gets more hectic and we seem to find less time to make our Christmas cards so join me now and the some if the other team members from Art With Heart and you will have all your Christmas cards and projects done in no time. Christmas won’t be hectic this year at all.

The countdown continues …..there are only 26 Wednesdays including today until the last week of November.  

Today I have for you a card made with the stamp set Father Christmas.  Yes I used this stamps set last week, I like to get as many different styles/types of cards and projects out of one stamp set as I can. I am really loving our new in-colour Fresh fig so I have once again used that on his robe. I think I am in love with Fresh Fig and copper! How about you?

The card that I made for you today is a Z-Fold card. 

There are quite a few versions of z-fold cards and double z-fold cards but I wanted to bring us back to a very simple one with some Designer Series Paper and a card that can be easily duplicated so you can make a stack in 1 sitting.

 I have used our blender pens to add the ink of Fresh Fig to the robe of Father Christmas. I have used Tranquil Tide Ribbon wrapped with some copper metallic thread to give that sparkle and contrast. I have used the holly leaves in crumb cake to frame out the inside of the card for when your write your Christmas message to your friends and love ones. For more product information check out the list below.
