Welcome to week 11 of Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart team.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to craft with friends and as a result I've been inspired to try some angled layouts with the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. As the holiday season edges closer, we need cards that are quick to create but still pack a punch in the style stakes. I think this layout is perfect for the photographic style prints in the Holiday Catalogue.
I started with a panel of Real Red card stock and spritzed it with water and ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle embossing folder. I chose one of the photographic designs from the All is Bright designer paper and cut it to the same size as my panel and then diagonally in half. After adhering the DSP I added a strip of Gold Glimmer to border the DSP and then added the 'Christmas' die cut in gold foil. This die has such a lovely font and makes a huge statement on the card. The finished panel was adhered to the Whisper White card base.
You can see the lovely texture of the dry embossed section in this photo. I added the smaller gold embossed 'merry' greeting that was cropped with the cute label die also from the Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. To finish, I added some gold Metallic Pearls to the label and to the 'i' on the die cut.
For the inside, I have a Real Red mat for the writing panel and I added the greeting from the Timeless Tidings stamp set to the centre with Garden Green ink. I've used the corner element from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies in Gold Foil and I added the coordinating flower in Real Red over the top with a small Gold Glimmer centre.
I'm looking forward to creating more cards with this layout. I hope you give it a try too.
