Hello and welcome,
Tonight the Art With Heart Team will be showcasing their Christmas projects with you for the month of September. The lovely Judy May is the host for our monthly hop, so make sure you click on her name at the end of this blog.
For my card today I decided to use the Peaceful Boughs Stamp Set and Dies which is on page 57 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and I've combined new products from the August - December 2020 Mini Catalogue.
I really love this set and using different products gives this Christmas card a new look. I had a light bulb moment and I wanted to use the Gold Hoop Embellishment as a starting point for my card.
Using the Beautiful Boughs Die images with the 12"x 12" Brushed Metallic Cardstock which comes in Bronze, Copper & Gold. They work well together and with the Gold Hoop Embellishment.
The card base is in Shaded Spruce Cardstock adding another panel in the same colour, using the larger pine branch inked up in Shaded Spruce Ink and stamped around the edge of the Cardstock. I just love this colour so much and the richness of the Shaded Spruce Argyle Satin Ribbon adds another layer to my card.
The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder onto Whisper White Cardstock and die cut with the smaller label from the Beautiful Boughs Dies.
Adding a little sparkle to the card, I've used the Just Jade Gems from the Flowers for Every Season Gems. It's hard to tell from the photos, but when the light shines on the card it gives a nice shine to the gold and the gems.
Now it's time to visit Judy May's blog and the rest of the participants for this month's Heart of Christmas Showcase.
