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.
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.
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!
