Welcome to Heart of Christmas for 2021. Each week (until mid-December), the talented ladies from the Art with Heart team will bring you inspiration for your holiday craft projects. I know it may seem early to be talking about holiday projects, but once we hit the middle of the year, the months fly by soooo fast!
For my card today, I'm using some new products from the upcoming 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue that will commence for customers on 3 August 2021. One of the perks of being a Demonstrator is being able to get your hands on them early.
I have used a few products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite for my card. You can probably guess that the Kraft colour is the gingerbread with the red and white of peppermint candies. On my Basic White card base I have added a layer of Kraft which will be available in a pack of 6" x 6" sheets.
The next layer is Real Red and I have used the striped design from the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks to add sparkly stripes with Shimmery White Embossing Paste. I hope you can see some of the sparkle in the photo above; it is so pretty in the light.
For the focus panel I have dry embossed it with the pine branch design from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders before die cutting with a Stitched Rectangle and popping it up on Dimensionals. On the left side I have a die cut ornament from the Gingerbread Dies with the background in Kraft and the detailed one in Basic White. I cut another in Real Red to see which I preferred and then popped some of the red pieces back into the white one. On the right is the lovely scripty greeting, which I have fussy cut from a bauble in the Delicate Baubles Dies set. I finished with a white Baker's Twine bow on the bauble and a couple of Kraft whirls with a rhinestone in the centre.
For the inside I have a Real Red mat for the writing panel and added a strip of Kraft down the left to provide a background for my peppermint candies.
