AWH HOC Week 8


Woo Hoo! I'm back on the Heart Of Christmas blog shares. Having to miss last week was not fun, so I made doubly sure I'd have time this week to make a Christmas card.

AS with my past card, I'm still playing with the Be Merry Suite of products. I was going for a bit of a clean vintage with this card - there's a bit of sponging, but no other ageing type effects.

The Be Merry DSP has lovely, traditional colours, but I keep finding myself adding Crumb Cake to the mix Don't you think it works beautifully? It really adds to the vintage feel, as does the Sheet Music background stamp.

I tried something new with the sentiment panel, by having the Garden Green layer only exposed on two sides. I quite like the effect. Here's a confession - I accidentally trimmed too close to the sentiment, so I went for the lopsided look to try to hide it! The twine and the wooden star from the Hearts and Stars Elements help to give the panel balance.

I used all of the same elements on the inside as I did on the outside, just pared back a little. I wasn't going to include the star, but at the last minute I added him to the card.

You can see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created by heading over to Claire's blog. She's got all the links to everyone's blogs there.

Bye for now,



  1. Tina this is such a great design-I can see it also working really well with the big sentiments from the new Carols for Christmas.

  2. Love your vintage style card Tina, the layering is beautiful and I especially like the inside too its so pretty. I don't think you can go wrong with crumb cake. xx

  3. Beautiful card Tina! It has such a rustic feel. Really great layout too.

  4. I love this card Tine, just a little bit different, in a great way

  5. Another amazing Christmas Card, I love this stamp set and the music sheet just sets it off oh so well.

  6. A really lovely card Tina, using one of my most favourite colours - Crumb Cake. :)

  7. I love it Tina, fabulous card and I love sheet music! Beethoven is one of my favourite composers! Crumb cake looks fabulous with these colours and I love the way you have offset the sentiment. Stroke of genius!

  8. Super card, Tina. Love how the soft sponging adds a vintage feel, but still looks fresh and clean. Love your inside treatment too.

  9. Gorgeous Tina, what a lovely design. My sheet music stamp arrived yesterday and I can't wait to use it!
