Heart of Christmas

HOC-2020-400-pxHi there

Welcome to the first Heart of Christmas showcase for 2020 and just in time for Christmas in July.  Every month, I will be hosting the talented ladies from the Art with Heart team. They have fabulous projects to get you inspired, so make sure you follow the links at the bottom of the post to see what they have created.

I have had several friends say that they don't make or send Christmas cards any more. Well, after this crazy year, there has never been a better time to reach out and connect or re-connect to friends and family and let them know you're thinking of them. Receiving happy mail this holiday season will bring more cheer than a text message. Our monthly showcase will help you get inspired to create your stash, so it is ready to send in November. 

Stampin' Up! Dove of Hope Bundle - Judy May, Just Judy Designs, Melbourne

Today, I have a clean and simple monochromatic card using the new Dove of Hope Bundle from the upcoming August - December Mini Catalogue.  I have used Pretty Peacock for the card base and for the top layer as well. The top layer was embossed with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder, that I think is perfect for holiday projects.

I die cut the dove body and wings from Shimmery White card stock and then for more shimmer, I painted the body and wing overlay with Frost White Shimmer Paint, which provides a subtle tone on tone look. The body of the dove has some embossing on it as well, which is lovely. I attached the wing overlay on the base just at the wide end  to give maximum dimension to the wings as you can see in the photo above and I popped up the wings on the body and then popped up the dove to even it out. The greeting is from the Dove of Hope stamp set, stamped in Pretty Peacock and cropped with a Stitched Rectangle Die. I added a gold metallic pearl over the full stops and also to the eye of the dove.

For the inside, I have a double mat and I've stamped the cluster of trees in the corner from the In The Pines stamp set.
