Heart of Christmas Week 7

Hello stamping friends, welcome to Week 7 of the Heart of Christmas with the Art with Heart team.

The gorgeous Poppy Parade was the colour I chose for my Christmas card this week, and that's because I have used the Santa's Workshop Specialty DSP. This lovely shade of red is a coordinating colour for the fun and whimsical designs, however for tonight's card I chose one of the reverse patterns.
Using my large letter framelits, I cut out the letters to make up the word Merry, and stuck these onto a panel of whisper white that I embossed with the Swirls & Curls TIEF. On the top and bottom of this panel I stuck down a narrow strip of gold glimmer paper, (this is the retired one, but we have new glimmer paper in the annual catalogue). The three snowflake shapes are die-cut from the coordinating framelits in the Signs of Santa bundle. What's difficult to see in the photo is the embossing on the card front, true to its name, I embossed it with the Subtle Dynamic TIEF.
Christmas was heat embossed with black embossing powder and die-cut with the banner die from the Petals and More thinlits dies. The black rhinestones are retired, but you could colour our clear ones with a black sharpie. In the centre of the middle 'R' I added a gold faceted gem.

In this photo above, you can see a little more of the texture you get from the subtle embossing folder and the shine from the black heat embossing. The Christmas sentiment is from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set. The stamp itself says Christmas Wishes, but I just masked off the word wishes before inking with my versamark.

Thanks for stopping by tonight. Join us again next week as we share our Week 8 projects with you.
