The Heart of Christmas - Week 11

Welcome to Week 11 in our Art with Heart Team Christmas inspiration countdown.
We are sharing weekly projects, posted every Wednesday, with a Christmas theme. This will be done each week until the end of November, so be sure to check out the teams previous projects over on Claire's blog, our wonderful team leader.

This week I'm sharing another simply made card. 

 I have made a card base in Thick Whisper White and layered it with a piece of Night of Navy.
Next I stamped about a half inch of gravelled road in Night of Navy ink along the bottom. These little stones come from the Hostess Set - 'In the City'. The gorgeous swirl of stars and the corner stars are from 'Star of Light' stamp set, stamped with Whisper White Craft Ink.

 How proud does this reindeer look, standing in the lovely moonlight?

He is from 'Santa's Sleigh' stamp set and I have stamped him tone on tone onto Smoky Slate cardstock and die cut with the matching framelits to the set, as is the little bow around his neck, which is cut from our Silver Foil Sheets. The moon is cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with one of our Layering Circle Framelits.
The greeting has been stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Embossing Powder.

 For the inside of the card, I have again used the swirl of stars from the Star of Light stamp set, stamped in Smoky Slate and the sentiment is from 'Hang your Stocking' stamp set, stamped in Night of Navy.

Adding little touches of sparkle is easy with the Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Thanks for stopping by this week. Don't forget to have a look over on our lovely Claire's blog to see what she has made this week. At the end of her post she will have a list of the girls who have joined in this week too. Be sure to check out their blogs as well and enjoy the Christmas inspiration we love sharing with you all.

Until next time...
Happy Crafting! 😊
