The Heart of Christmas - Week 3

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

I hope you have enjoyed the long weekend we have had here in Australia. I have done a little bit of creating and had a lovely relaxing time with the family which included some board games. We love having a good games night, how about you?

As part of my creating this weekend I made our weekly Christmas card for our Heart of Christmas get together with you so let the countdown continue …..there are only 25 Wednesdays including today until the last week of November. 

Today I thought I would mix it up a little bit from the last 2 weeks. I still have Santa but I have used the Santa from the Cookie Cutter Christmas set. He is so cute.  I have paired him with the new hostess set In the City and all I had the hardest time not singing at the top of my lungs Santa Claus is coming to town! Well now you will be singing it all day too with this cute card! I can’t Stop!

To make this cute card you need to:
1.           Cut your Basic grey A4 card stock in half and then fold in half for your
card base
2.         Cut a piece of Be Merry DSP 14.5 cm x 10 cm
3.         Cut 2 x 12 cm  lengths of Copper Trim and 1 x 12 cm length of Silver Natural Trim
4.        Adhere copper then silver the copper trim 2cm up from the bottom of the Be Merry DSP
5.         Adhere Be Merry DSP to the Front of your Basic Grey card Base.
6.        With your embossing buddy lightly rub over the bottom quarter of the rest of the Basic Grey cards stock piece that you have.
7.        Choose the 4 houses  and 1 tree you would like to use from In the City Stamp set and ink up with versa mark and stamp onto the Basic Grey card stock that you have rubbed lightly with the embossing buddy.
8.        Once you have stamped 4 houses and a tree pour over the silver embossing powder and tap of the excess back into the embossing powder. Then heat set with the heating tool.
9.        When set fussy cut out the houses and adhere just above the copper trim using Stampin’ Dimensionals
10.    Stamp Santa from Cookie cutter Christmas Stamp set in Memento ink and then use the Cookie cutter builder punch to punch him out.
11.       Use Cherry cobbler and Basic Grey Stampin’ Write markers to colour in Santa.
12.     Use a bit more copper trim and make a loop and adhere to the back of Santa and then pop him up on dimensionals and adhere him in the top left corner.
13.     Now using the Labeler Alphabet spell out “Santa Claus is coming to town” and cut them out and pop them up using the new Mini Dimensionals! Try not to sing! I bet you can’t! 😊
It was lots of fun making this card!
