Heart of Christmas - Week 7

Hi there

Welcome to Week 7 of Heart of Christmas with the  Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team.  

This week I'm a bit time poor as I have a long list of chores that I need to get through before I leave for Cairns on Saturday morning. However, I managed to put a simple card together using the Pine Tree Punch and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set.

I started with Real Red card base and added a panel of Very Vanilla that has been matted on Shaded Spruce. I embossed the Very Vanilla panel with the  Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and have used the debossed side which gives a more subtle look.

I've cropped 2 trees with the Pine Tree punch, one from the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Paper pack and one from Gold Glimmer paper. I adhered the green and red striped tree to a Shaded Spruce card stock tree to make it more robust. Both trees are sitting on a panel of Real Red card stock that I dry embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The greeting from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set was cropped with a stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and matted on a circle of Gold Glimmer.  I added some Shaded Spruce rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels pack and a sprinkle of small stars cropped with the smallest die from the Stitched Stars Dies.

A simply lovely card Judy. I love the look of that Stylish Scroll EF, I think that might just have to be added to my next order!

A lovely card Judy. I especially love how the angle of the striped DSP looks like a string of red lights or tinsel wrapped around the tree. Have a lovely time in Cairns xx


What a great card Judy, I love the look with the debossed side being up. I might have to try that a bit more on my cards too!

Gorgeous Christmas colours and layout of your card Judy. I hope you have a lovely time away in Cairns.

Such a lovely card, Judy! I never would have guessed it came together in a hurry. The gold glimmer looks fab with the rich green and red.
