This week I’m working with the Hearts Come Home bundle which was one of the sets on my first order from this years Autumn/ Winter catalogue. Who can resist those cute little house dies and the Santa in his sleigh with his reindeers is a winner for me. For today’s card I focused more on this dies in this set as I was desperate to have a play with them. Continue reading “Little Sparkly Homes Christmas Card”
Today I’ve got two cards for the price of one with the duo made from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and the Be Merry DSP. These products can both be found in the annual catalogue on page 113. Initially I overlooked Merry mistletoe but when it was in the sale last week I ordered myself a set and its growing on me. I love the Be Merry DSP mainly because I’m a real sucker for Cherry Cobbler, for me its the perfect Christmas red, but I also love how half of these papers contain generic patterns which can be used all year round. My favourite sheet though is still the cute little reindeer paper which I’ve used both sides of in todays projects.
What more do you need than some gold embossing powder and gold foil to make a beautiful card. I love the simplicity of this card and think it perfectly highlights the lovely reindeer stamp.
The other side of the reindeer paper is this garden green hounds tooth pattern, which is a little full on when you look at a whole sheet but works well with small amounts here. I’ve added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the mistletoe berries to add a little sparkle, just wish my photography skills were better so you could see how lovely it looks.
Here are both cards together, which is your favourite. Despite loving the reindeer paper I think the mistletoe one is my favourite, I just love the glitter.
Today’s card features the wonderful Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, which I’ve only just got my hands on and boy do I love it! It’s so sparkly, I can see me ordering many, many packs of this stuff.
I simply created a 5″ square card base with Night of Navy, added a layer of the glimmer paper and another layer of Night of Navy cardstock. Tree was cut from inside the glimmer paper matt as I don’t want to waste any of this lovely paper. The thank you greeting, and stars were stamped in white craft and embossed with a mixture of white embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. A little tip, when embossing with white powder on dark card always use your embossing buddy first to remove static, I didn’t here and it shows.
