Gate Fold Card: Soft Sea Foam

AWH Heart Of Christmas: Week 2

Heart of christmas blog hopHello and welcome to Week 2 of the Art With Heart team's Heart Of Christmas blog hop.  Each Wednesday evening we'll be bringing you a Christmas creation.  There's a link down the bottom where you can check out the cards from the other hoppers. 

This week I had a few coppery products lying around so thought I'd assemble a card from leftovers.  Love this coppery Christmas addition to my card stash.


Tips and Tricks: The copper foil piece is embossed with 'Oh My Stars' embossing folder.  The leaves from Blended Seasons are embossed in white and coloured using the gorgeous shimmer paint coming up in the Holiday Catalogue.  Remember that stamp set is only until the end of August then it'll be gone for good. 


I used my aquapainter to dip into the shimmer paint in the lids.  LOVE shimmer paint.  I daubed some onto the Merry stamp for the greeting.  If you love copper we've got copper glimmer paper coming up soon in 6" combo packs.  The 'Christmas' is cut using the Merry Christmas To All bundle. 


Keen to get some more Christmas card inspiration.  Head over to Claire Daly's blog post and you can find the rest of the AWH Heart Of Christmas Week 2 links. 

Happy stamping! 

Cheers, Sue

Wow, love all that shimmer and sparkle on your card, Sue. I rarely emboss the foil, but it looks fabulous.

Sharon Davern

Wow Sue, what a different Christmas card I have never thought about putting the leaves on like that. I like it a lot. The embossed copper foil is very effective as well!

Catherine Proctor

Sue, your embossed star copper foil background is incredible. What a lovely card.

Claire Daly

Great card Sue! Love all that metallic loveliness. It makes me want to break out the Christmas carols. I definitely need to go and buy some more shimmer paint now! Thanks for playing along in week 2 of Heart of Christmas.
