Heart of Christmas 2022 - Week 12

Hi fellow crafters! Welcome to the Heart of Christmas blog hop this week. I’m hopping along with fellow demonstrators on the Art With Heart team to showcase some wonderful Christmas projects every week until the end of November. We’re into Week 12!

This weeks card is a fancy fold called a Reverse Easel. The card measures 14.8cm x 10.5cm, scored in the middle at 7.4cm and then 11.1cm. The DSP is called Lights Aglow and the stamp set is Brightest Glow.

The card base is Very Vanilla card stock and the black and gold starry DSP is adhered to the base panel and the top half.

The scalloped DSP panel has been die cut using the Scalloped Contours die set.

I really wanted to incorporate the ‘Happy New Year’ greeting and so this shaped the design of this card so that when you open the card the recipient will be greeted with a happy new year while the front of is a Christmas greeting.

Each greeting was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. They were die cut with a die from the Labels Aglow die set. The greetings were adhered to a die cut circle of Gold Glimmer Specialty paper.

Before adhering the Christmas sentiment I adhered some Elegant Gold trim behind the greeting. I have also added some gold Festive Pearls.

Please  head on to the next participant for more Christmas inspiration the lovely and very talented Andrea Sargeant.

If at any time you find a broken link please head to the blog of our lovely host for this week, the lovely Tina Gillespie and she will have the list of all those participating.

Don’t forget to check back in next week for more Christmas projects. Hope you have a fabulous week ahead!
