Hello fellow crafters, it’s time for some weekly “Heart of Christmas” Christmas card inspiration with the Art with Heart Team.
This week I’ve focused on the gorgeous little boxwood wreath embellishments and the Be Merry Designer Series Paper, which co-ordinates with the Merry Mistletoe stamp set. The colours in this paper are the very traditional Christmas colours of garden green, cherry cobbler and whisper white.
Because the background design of this card is quite simple, I added dimension and interest by attaching one of the lovely boxwood wreaths to the sentiment with a simple bow made out of 1/8 inch sheer ribbon in whisper white. The sentiment is from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set and stamped in whisper white onto cherry cobbler card stock, finished off with some white perfect accents. I always use the sponge daubers to apply whisper white to my stamps.
Here’s a close up of the gorgeous little wreath.
There are so many variations that would work equally well with this design. You could use any combination of this DSP for the background as the papers all coordinate. The sentiment would look beautiful if it was heat embossed, and the wreath could be tied on with linen thread, whisper white bakers twine or some of the silver or gold 1/8 inch ribbon.
I’m so excited that I’ve already made 6 Christmas cards…and it’s still only the start of July!
Which one do you like best so far?
