Stampin' Up - Heart of Christmas - Week 14

Well I can't believe how close it is to ..... well you know, my wedding anniversary! LOL! No My Birthday! Ok I'm not telling you how many days or weeks it is to Christmas but as my wedding anniversary is 3 days after Christmas and my birthday is 4 days after Christmas it is 6 weeks and 2 days until my wedding anniversary. Very exciting I know, this year will be 27 years married! I think we are doing not too bad for young people 😃😃

Tonight the Heart of Christmas blog hop is being hosted by my lovely friend and super creative Kate Morgan so make sure you go over to her blog to see what she has created and see the list of participants for tonight's hop.

Tonight I have for you a card made from the first frost bundle on page 37 of your holiday catalogue. It is so gorgeous! Here is my card.
First Frost, Tin Tile DTIEF, Tufted TIEF, Heart of Christmas, Christmas Card, Rhapsody in craft, Art with heart

 I saw this design for a birthday card on Melissa Giffords blog and I  thought I would totally CASE it  and make a Christmas card with this design.

Here is a closer look at the  details especially at the tin tile band in cherry cobbler underneath the gorgeous flowers that have been stamped in cherry cobbler also.  I have cut the leaves out in vellum and the branches in whisper white card. The sentiment that comes with the gorgeous stamp set was cut out using the stitched shape framelits.

First Frost, Tin Tile DTIEF, Tufted DTIEF, Christmas Card, Rhapsody in craft, DIY Cards, Art with Heart, Heart of Christmas

This card is so easy to replicate and would look fantastic in whatever colour you chose. I only had a chance to make one today, bit of a busy day with appointments but I think I will be revisiting it to make some more in other colours. What colours do you think you would like to make?

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the card for tonight, you would like to purchase some of the goodies to make the cards or if you would like to join my team.

Thank you for spending some of your time with me today
Take Care


  1. Sharon, this is a beautiful card for Christmas. I love how you have added the vellum leaves for that extra touch of softness, gorgeous. Thanks for sharing xx

  2. Sharon, I absolutely LOVE your card! The contrast of Cherry Cobbler against Whisper White is so stunning! And I'm loving those vellum elements too. x

  3. Thank you Caroline, it looks really good in real life I was really happy with it. xx

  4. What a lovely card Sharon, I love this set and I haven't even had a play with it yet. But I think seeing your card I am going to give it a go. I hope you wont mind if I CASE your card for a friends birthday. Thanks in advance.
