The Heart of Christmas - Week 10

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.
Wow there are only 18 Wednesdays including today until the last week of November.  Have you started buying Christmas presents yet? I haven’t. I have my daughter’s sweet 16th first before I can think about Christmas presents.

Today I am continuing on our One Sheet Wonder cards we are getting a lot out of 1 sheet of Be Merry Designer Series Paper aren’t we? 4 down And more to come.

The card that I have made this week uses just the piece of DSP measuring 2 1/2'’x 5 1/4” and I have backed it with Garden Green card stock.  This week I have used the Christmas tree side of the DSP and used the Merry Mistletoe stamp set.  

Such a quick card to put together using this method with all our DSP already cut.

  All I had to do is back the DSP in garden green card stock wrap some gorgeous Basic Black Shimmer ribbon and tie a double knot and adhere this to your Cherry cobbler card base. Stamp the greeting of Merry Christmas in memento ink and cut out using the stitched shaped oval framelit and baked that with a garden green scalloped layering oval framelit all cut out using the big shot! Adhere this to your card base over your already placed DSP with some dimensionals. On the leftover whisper white card stock from cutting out your Merry Christmas greeting use your embossing buddy and then stamp 3 garden green Christmas trees from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and then sprinkle on the clear embossing powder and set with your heat tool. Cut these out and you have your 3 trees that you can pop up on the mini dimensionals which I just love! Now for a little bling once you have added your trees to the card and I have used the metallic enamel shapes.

And don’t for get to add a bit of decoration to the inside of your card
