The Heart of Christmas - Week 12

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

Can you believe that this is week 12 of our weekly Christmas sharing with the team at Art with Heart? I can’t! That has sure gone quick. 

Today with our One Sheet Wonder I have used the 3 little strips that are 1” wide.

I thought they would go perfectly in the border you can make with the new Card Front Builder Thinlits which is in the new holiday catalogue. But the best bit is that The Card Front Builder Thinlits and its matching stamp set Carols of Christmas is available early. You can get it now in August! It is a fabulous bundle you don’t want to miss out! Get in early! Make sure you contact me to find out how! 

I don’t know about you but I love Christmas and I love the stamp in the set of Christmas Pines that says Season of Joy. Christmas time has always been a season of joy for me, as a child and I still love it now! I loved helping with all the decorations and cooking and singing all the Christmas carols. December is also full of birthdays for my family with my niece and brother before Christmas and my birthday 4 days after, my husband 5 days after. My husband and I got married 3 days after Christmas and then the first week of January I have 2 cousins and my sister-in-law who have birthdays as well so with Christmas it really is a season of Joy in our family.

The season of Joy is stamped in Cherry cobbler and then I have sprinkled clear embossing powder on it and set it with the heat tool. The lovely frame around it is stamped with VersaMark and then I have used copper embossing powder! I know I can’t get away from copper! I don't know why you would want to!

With doing our Christmas cards little by little during this year makes it a certain that this Christmas will be a season of joy for all of us as well, as we won’t be in a rush at the end of the year to get our cards made and sent.

To finish this card I have cut out some pine leaves with the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies in garden green and some branches in crumb cake. The pine cones are cut out with copper foil paper and I have used the fine tip glue pen to adhere them to our card front. Of course I needed some Copper Metallic thread and popped our sentiment up on dimensionals!

On the inside of the card I have stamped a greeting in Cherry cobbler and used the little leaves in the Christmas Pines stamp set in each corner with garden green.
