The Heart of Christmas - Week 17

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

Hope you have had a wonderful week. I was unable to participate in the Heart of Christmas last week as it was my daughter’s 16th birthday so I was busy making a birthday cake and cupcakes for various things for my daughter. 

Then I had 20 ladies coming to my house the following day for a progressive dinner. So it was a busy cooking week for me, but a great week. What was your week like?

Well I know you will be surprised but we have come to the end of our One Sheet Wonder! I know – what ever are we going to do now!
Well here we are this is the last card.

I have used the stamp sets Sheet Music and Musical Season along with the last 2 pieces of Be Merry DSP.  Accompanied with the gorgeous Foil Snowflakes and adding a little more bling with the Black Rhinestone Jewels.

This card was very simple and quick to make with stamping the Sheet Music in Smoky Slate onto Whisper white card stock and layering that onto Basic Black card stock before adhering to your Cherry Cobbler card base. I have stamped the Sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock and then used the clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool before double layering with Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black card stock. Then taking your 2 remaining pieces of Be Merry DSP and backing them with Basic Black card stock. Adhere down the gorgeous Silver Foil Snowflake with a tiny bit of fast fuse in the centre of your card vertically and then to the left hand side of the sheet music. Now for our Be Merry DSP pieces, place the short one horizontally across the middle of the page and the long thin one adhere that over the top of the other piece straight down the right hand side, kind of like in a T. Now pop up your sentiment on dimensionals add your Black rhinestone Jewels and there you have it our last One Sheet wonder is complete.

But don’t forget the inside of your cards stamp the gorgeous harp from Musical Seasons in smoky slate then the greeting in cherry cobbler.

Well let's look at all 12 of our cards that we have made with our One Sheet of Be Merry DSP and what we started with.

A great range a Christmas cards and a great example of what you can do with One 12x12 Sheet of Designer Series Paper.
