The Heart of Christmas - Week 8
July 19, 2017
Welcome to week 8 of Christmas inspiration from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team. This week I have a bold and contemporary design for you in black, gold and white. I have taken apart one of the luscious Striped Treat Bags in gold and white and used it as designer paper. You can get 4 panels out of each treat bag. I heat embossed some stars on the right side of the black panel and added the striped paper to the left side.
The reindeer from Santa's Sleigh Thinlits has been die cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer and then popped up onto the gold foil stitched oval. The greeting from the 'Star of Light' stamp set has been gold embossed and matted on black. I added two flat back gold cabochons to the greeting and a gold bow is the finishing touch on the reindeer.
For the inside, I have gold embossed the greeting from the 'Merry Mistletoe' stamp set in the centre and added a strip of the retired Winter Wonderland gold and white striped washi at the bottom, as it matched so well.
Finally, here is a view from the top.

An absolutely beautiful card Judy. I would never have thought to use black and gold for a Christmas card - so clever, and works beautifully together. Stunning!

Stunning, Judy! I've always admired how neatly you heat emboss - not a stray speck of embossing powder to be seen. The gold touches make this a really luxe card.
