Heart of Christmas Week 4

Hi stamping friends, here we are at Week 4 of our Heart of Christmas blog hop with the Art with Heart team.
The Holiday Catalogue is now live and customers can finally purchase the gorgeous goodies inside it.
In my opinion, this is the BEST holiday catalogue that I've seen! There is something to suit everyone's taste of Christmas crafting, and those who celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving festivities.

2018 Holiday Catalogue

My card tonight, features old and new product.

I'll start with the new products. I've used the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP and the Joyous Noel 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper. These products can be found on page 29 of the Holiday Catalogue. You'll have to forgive me if I use the words, gorgeous or beautiful too many times tonight. The DSP features copper accents and the designs are just gorgeous!
Did you pick the "older products" yet?
They're really not old, as they are still in the current Annual Catalogue, I've used the Pretty Pines thinlits dies to cut out the leaf and berry sprigs from the glimmer paper in all three of the colours.
There's Copper, Merry Merlot and Tranquil Tide. Just so beautiful.
The ends of the Merry Merlot glimmer paper were punched out using the Detailed Trio Punch in the AC, and the sentiment, from 'Itty Bitty Greetings', is heat embossed with our white embossing powder. I wrapped some copper metallic thread around the strip of glimmer paper and coloured the basic rhinestones with the dark cherry cobbler Stampin' Blend marker.

Here's a close-up photo.

The Merry Merlot banner and Classic Label sentiment are both attached with dimensionals.

One tip I will share with you is to let your rhinestones dry before adding them to your card. I was just a little bit anxious to stick them on before they had dried properly, and the result was a tiny "boo boo" - oops!
Thank you for joining us on our hop tonight. To see more festive creations, just use Claire's blog link below.
