Hi everyone and welcome to Week 5 of The Heart of Christmas.
This week I have taken my design inspiration from the little square card pictured on page 114 of the Annual Catalogue. Grab your copy and have a look. If you don't have a catalogue yet, just get in touch with me and I'll send one out to you.
The 'Oh, What Fun' photopolymer stamp set consists of some lovely Christmas sentiments and I've made 2 cards using the colour combination of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso - a classic Christmas colour theme.
My first card is a Cherry Cobbler base that I have stamped tone on tone all over with the holly stamp and added some sparkle with Wink of Stella. 'Tis the Season is stamped in Early Espresso, cut out with our Stitched Shapes Square Framelits and matted on to the Layering Square Framelits. I've popped them all up with Dimensionals. I felt the card needed a "little something" more, so I added a Gold Faceted Gem and a little bow made with some retired ribbon from our last Holiday Catalogue.
For my second card I used a Very Vanilla base with a Cherry Cobbler layer, and stamped tone on tone again with the holly stamp. This time I just wrapped a piece of ribbon around the Garden Green square. So quick and easy to put together.
A closer look.
I hope you like these cards as much as I enjoyed making and sharing them with you.
Don't forget to head on over to Claire's blog, our team leader, where you will find a list of my lovely, fellow team members who are sharing their Christmas makes with you this week.
Until next time...
Happy Crafting x
