Heart of Christmas - Week 14

Heart of Christmas - Week 13

Hi there

Welcome to Week 13 of Heart of Christmas. This week I'm hosting the lovely ladies from the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team who are sharing their inspiration for Christmas craft with you.  

They say everything old is new again, don't they (well eventually!)? For my card this week, I've reprised a card I made years ago. It has lots of sparkle, texture and dimension and you can make it in lots of different colour ways. 

Stampin' Up! Circle Tree Christmas Card - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne
This is my circle tree card, which you could make in many colour combos, but I've chosen Pretty Peacock and Pool Party with Red and Silver Glimmer. The card base is Real Red and I stamped the greeting from the So Many Stars set in Pretty Peacock onto a layer of thick Whisper White. To add interest and texture I dry embossed it with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and added the narrow strip of Red Glimmer before adhering it to the card base.

I created a template for my tree shape so I would have a guide to keep me on track. I positioned it on the card and lightly marked the 3 points of the triangle and a small section on the 3 straight edges. Then it is a matter of cutting the circles and placing them into the shape until you are happy with the layout. I dry embossed a piece of Pretty Peacock card stock with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder before punching out the circles. I like the texture and interest of the 'stripes' going in different directions. The large Pool Party circle was punched out of a piece I embossed with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder. I'm sure you can see the myriad of possibilities with this simple design. Some of the circles were adhered flat, some on 1mm foam pads and some on Dimensionals to add more interest and texture. I hope you can see some of that in the photo above.

To finish, I die cut the small open star from the Stitched Stars Dies and added it to the top of the tree with a rolled up glue dot and popped a rhinestone in the centre.

Thanks for visiting today!



Judy, I love the bright and fresh look of your card. I'm sure I would have struggled with placement of those circles, but you have made it look even possible for me to give it a try. Gorgeous card!

I love your card Judy. I remember seeing it before and loved it then. Such a super idea and the colours are sensational.
