Heart Of Christmas: Joyous Noel DSP

Heart of christmas blog hop Welcome to the first week of our Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop to help get you feeling festive and organised and inspired for some papercrafting.

I'm excited to be taking part in a special Christmas blog event this year for the Art With Heart team that I belong to.  Thanks to our team leader Claire Daly for organising the hop.

 Here's my first Christmas card creation for the year.

Merry-christmas-to-all-card-2

I was cutting some of our new Christmas papers and accidentally cut these ones a little short.  Meant to cut 4" x 6" pieces but I ended up with some 3" and 1" offcuts and thought they'd work together on a card - voila.  The paper is Joyous Noel DSP and it has gorgeous metallic touches of copper here and there.  Love the colours - Tranquil Tide and Merry Merlot are two of the main colours.  

Merry-christmas-to-all-card

The ribbon covering the DSP join is a stunner.  Merry Merlot on one side and a beautiful copper sheen on the other.  Isn't it just beautiful. 

I've used the Merry Christmas To All bundle for the greeting.  Mix and match the framelit words, and the script and plain stamped words to make your chosen greeting.  The merry is cut from copper glimmer paper - another favourite from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.  These products are available from September 5th when the catalogue officially goes live.

Are you all organised at Christmas? I'm usually a last minute scrambler but perhaps if I get cracking each week with the Heart Of Christmas blog posts I'll have a nice stash of cards all set to go in December.  I know I have a few very organised class regulars who get their cards all made early in the year.  One day Susan!

LOL, that sounds like the kind of error I'd make! The card turned out beautifully though, so great save! The ribbon looks so pretty!

Caroline

Such gorgeous rich colours in your beautiful card Sue. Looks like another bundle I'll have to add to the EVER GROWING wish list.

Gorgeous card Sue. Would have to be my fav DSP

Judy May

Beautiful card, Sue and a great (accidental) layout to get value from a sheet of designer paper.

Claire Daly

Stunning card Sue. That Joyous Noel paper looks so great with the Merry Merlot and Copper. Thanks for playing along with week 1 of Heart of Christmas.
