The Heart of Christmas - Week 14

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

How has your week been? Here in Australia it is starting to look like spring is just around the corner even though the temperature isn’t quite there yet. I am loving all the blossoms coming out especially the magnolias on the trees. The white and pale pink ones are starting to come out around my neighbourhood but I can’t wait for the dark purples to show, they are my favourite. How about you?

Well today is Week 14 of the Heart of Christmas and week 7 of our One Sheet Wonder.
We are nearing the end we don’t have many pieces left.  Can you believe how many different cards we have made over the last 7 weeks?

We have the original pieces and a couple extra that we have made along the way when we have cut piece up to fit the designs for that week.

I am using the 2 largest pieces left the 3” x 2 ½” and the 3”x4” but I have cut down the big piece so they are now both the same size. Next week I think I will need to get very creative with what we have left.

 I have used my favourite copper foil paper and combined it with the gorgeous copper trim. But I have teased the trim just a little bit to make it look like a netting.

I have also added the gorgeous foil snowflake in silver that is available to everyone in just a couple of day’s time on September 1st, from the new Holiday Catalogue.

By adding some clear embossed trees from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the cute little deer that you can cut out using the Card Front Builder framelits you can make this card extremely quickly and make multiples for your Christmas card list.  Add a little bling with the Metallic Enamel shapes.

Add the sentiment clear embossed once stamped in Cherry cobbler from the Nature sings stamp set and cut it out with the Stitched shaped framelits and layered with Cherry Cobbler card stock using the layering oval framelits. I have popped the sentiment and the trees and deer up on dimensionals and mini dimensionals. 

Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card just something simple brings your card up to the next level. I have clear embossed the sentiment as well as the little decoration as it is a Christmas card and the inside should glisten just a little bit.
