Heart of Christmas - Week 16

Hello friends.
Welcome to our last Heart of Christmas for 2019.

I hope that you have enjoyed all of the wonderful Christmas projects, that the Art With Heart team have shared with you over the past 15 weeks.
I also hope that you have found plenty of inspiration for your own Christmas crafting.

Tonight, the card I'm sharing with you is my first attempt at a Pop & Twist Fun Fold card.
(The measurements for this card come from Maymay Made It.)

To make this card, I've used the Brightly Gleaming Suite again.
Regardless of the style of card or 3D project, you will always get an elegant result by using these beautiful patterned papers and coordinating products.

In the photo above, I have captured the gorgeous copper accents in the Designer Series Paper. It's not always easy to take great photos of projects that feature shiny foil elements, so you may just have to purchase this beautiful DSP for yourself, to see it in real life - (wink, wink).

In the photo above, the lighting makes it easier to see the lovely filigree edging on the Pretty Peacock frame. This die, and the Subtle embossed copper foil shape are from the Ornate Frame Dies. The sentiment, stamped in Pretty Peacock onto Very Vanilla cardstock, comes from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set. I have cropped this with a Stitched Rectangles die.

Inside is where the "WOW"! takes place.
The mechanism for the 'pop & twist' function, is so easy to make. I wish I had come up with this idea myself - it's just so clever!

I stamped another sentiment from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set and again, I used dies from the Ornate Frames die set.
The copper sprigs on the left and right of the small squares, come from the Brightly Gleaming Foil Elements. The writing panel is a stitched rectangle in Very Vanilla.

And for the last time, I'll direct you now to the blog of our lovely Judy May, who is hosting this final Heart of Christmas blog hop for 2019. Click here to see Judy's fabulous project and the list of tonight's hop participants, and their equally fabulous creations.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank our lovely team leader, Claire Daly, for her continued support and encouragement to participate in not only our team hops, but for all things Stampin' Up! and team related. Thank you Claire 😘

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas, and a happy & healthy 2020.🎅🎄
