Your Christmas countdown continues – it’s exactly three months or 13 weeks today until Christmas Day!
This week’s Christmas card is a fancy fold card – I’m not 100% sure of the name, however think it could be called a peek a boo flap card? Here’s a short video to show you how it works.
As you probably know, I love monochromatic cards. I’ve taken the colour scheme for my card from the stunning gold and Very Vanilla Shining Brightly 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Specialty Designer Series Paper I’ve used on the front of the card and also inside it too.
The gorgeous candle image and both sentiments are all from the Radiant Light stampset.
The gold heat embossed candle image and the gold glimmer circle layer behind it are both die cut using the new Decked Circle Dies.
The Silver & Gold 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Adhesive-backed Glimmer Paper is self adhesive and it is a brand new online only release.
Here’s what the card looks like partially opened…

The Adhesive-Backed Star Trinkets on the front tag sentiment pick up the stars in the DSP – the perfect embellishment!
It’s so hard to photograph the glorious sparkly gold elements in my card so I also took a photograph outside in my garden.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Caroline Manwaring. I can’t wait to see what Caroline has made this week.

Welcome to week eighteen of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop!
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Early Espresso, the darkest of our neutrals family.
Early Espresso is such a dark colour I normally only use a little of it to make trees, wood and branches, however, for this card I decided to totally embrace this deep rich brown colour, using it with the darkest of the Brushed Metallic Cardstock to create a plethora of pine cones for my monochromatic card.
I seem to be permanently on a default button that is set to using Basic White and I always forget to use Very Vanilla, but not this week!
This card was super quick to make because the Early Espresso layer and the Brushed Metallic Cardstock layer are each cut using these two enormous dies in the Christmas Pinecones dies.
The Early Espresso faux suede trim is threaded through a Seasonal Label Dies stamped with the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from Christmas to Remember Stamp Set and embellished with a Natural Woven Ribbon bow.
Although it doesn’t say it on the Stampin’ Up! website, this ribbon is actually Very Vanilla.
With all the foil and the dark colours this was a super hard card to photograph, however, if you look closely you can see the Very Vanilla Classic Matte Dots that finish my Early Espresso card off.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Michele Taylor – I can’t wait to see what Michele has made this week!
