Heart of Christmas Week 6

Hello & welcome to Week 6 of the Heart of Christmas from the 
Art with Heart team.

I've gone for a little touch of elegance on my card tonight.

This gorgeous pattern is one from the All is Bright DSP pack. There are some beautiful photographic images in the pack and this one screamed elegance to me.
I've used the pinecones and leaves from the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies and the sweet bow from that set and added them to a scalloped circle on a gold foil stitched shape circle.

The Merry Christmas greeting is from the photopolymer Star of Light stamp set in the Annual Catalogue, and it's been heat embossed in gold.

I love this banner shape die. It's from the Petals and More Thinlits dies. The gold foil is the actual size and for the greeting I placed the die close to the merry and cut, then put it back into the die with the other end close to the 's' of christmas and cut just the end. Then I trimmed top and bottom with my paper snips. Of course I have to have my obligatory bit of bling with my rhinestones.
*For my scalloped circle and one of the leaves, I have used a retired glimmer paper, which is why I didn't include it in the product list below, however there is a new glimmer paper called 'Sparkle', and I know this would be just as gorgeous as the retired one. It's available in our Annual Catalogue.

Inside the card I glued a narrow strip of the DSP that I attached to a strip of gold foil with about an 1/8" showing at the top.

Each week I really look forward to seeing what the other girls from the team have created for their Heart of Christmas projects and of course you can see them too just by using the link to Claire's blog below.
