I’m really enjoying participating in The Heart of Christmas, a weekly blog bringing you Handmade Christmas Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team.
Every Wednesday morning we post some Christmas card inspiration using products from the new 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, and very soon we’ll also be using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (available for sale in September).
Santa’s Sleigh meets Birthday Delivery meets Merry Mistletoe
I love using multiple stamps sets on a card, as well as using non-Christmas sets for Christmas cards.
The little girl in the Birthday Delivery Stamp set is supposed to be holding a bunch of flowers or a present, but the teddy from the Santa’s Sleigh Set is also the perfect size for her to hold.
I could just picture her not wanting to go to bed on Christmas Eve, holding her teddy as she looks out the window, waiting for Santa to arrive.
Or standing under the mistletoe, waiting to be kissed.
I’ve stamped the little girl in crumb cake on whisper white card stock, then cut her out using the Birthday Friends Framelit. Her teddy was stamped with crumb cake on crumb cake card stock then cut out with the matching Santa’s Sleigh Framelit. The red bow was stamped in real red on real red card stock and cut out with the matching Santa’s Sleigh Framelit.
To assemble the card, I layered a mat of real red on a whisper white card, then topped with a crumb cake mat. I stamped the mistletoe stamp from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set (see image on left) in crumb cake onto the crumb cake mat.
I topped the mistletoe with a linen thread bow behind the red bow and topped with a rhinestone jewel. The little girl and her teddy are also mounted with Stampin’ Up! dimensionals and I cut out the sentiment with the modern window punch.
I hope you enjoyed stopped by today. You can go back to Claire’s blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made.
