Hello crafters – welcome to our last AWH Heart of Christmas blog hop for 2021! I’ve loved being inspired by the incredible creations in our Art with Heart Team.

With less than four weeks to Christmas have you got all your Christmas cards made yet? Have you even started yet? 

I finally caved in and purchased the Words of Cheer bundle after seeing so many amazing cards made with this bundle. I’ve enjoyed using this bundle so much I’ve also used it for my Merry Merlot card for our AWH Colour creations blog hop this week – come back and visit my blog on Wednesday night to see the other card I’ve made with the Words of Cheer bundle.

The large floral image gives you a lot of different options for adding colour to your card. I’ve used Poppy Parade, Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake Stampin Blends, a Basic Black stamped sentiment and image outline, with gold accents in the die cut letters and the twine. I love how all these neutrals work together to make the Poppy Parade really pop!

Melon Mambo colour combination


The card design is super simple. Stamp the large floral image on each side of the Basic White card stock layer, colour it in and wrap with some twine or ribbon before adhering to your card base – I used Mossy Meadow.

When die cutting with foil I use use adhesive sheets to eliminate the risk of glue on the foil. The top layer of “happy” is gold foil on an adhesive sheet and the bottom layer is die cut in Crumb Cake card stock and then popped onto the card using Stampin Dimensionals.
Not only do these large double layer dies look amazing, they are so easy to use!

To match the gold metallic Simply Elegant Trim tied around the base of the card I added Gold adhesive backed Metallic Pearls to the centre of the flowers. TIP – to get the Simply Elegant Trim to stay tied in a bow and sitting on the card I used a double knot and also adhered it to the card using glue dots.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Christine Blain. I can’t wait to see what Christine shares with us today!
