Non Traditional Christmas Traditions

Hi!


It's time for the new Heart Of Christmas Blog Share. This week has been a bit of a purple week for me. Did you see yesterday's Gorgeous Grape card? Tonight I've gone for the other new purple - Highland Heather. I've teamed it with the new Silver Foil Edged Cards and Envelopes, which you can find in the Holiday Catalogue.

I started by stamping the Sheet Music stamp in the top left and bottom right corners. I then sponged all around using Highland Heather ink, leaving the middle bare. I stamped the starry swirl from Star Of Light through the middle. I then splattered some water on the card, and finished by using my Aqua Painter to splatter some Frost White Shimmer Paint over the top. Be careful with the water - it does not agree with the silver foil.

The sentiment stamp is also from the Holiday Catalogue. It's from the Christmas Traditions bundle, which also includes the punch and a gorgeous Christmas tin. How perfect is this sentiment with the Sheet Music stamp? I've layered it over a Silver Foil banner and a vellum circle.

Luckily, another stamp set has some more lyrics from the same song! I've used Hearts Come Home on the inside. I've finished it off in the same way as the front of the card. I really love the way the swirls look along the edge of the sponging. I think I'll use that on another card soon!

You can find the rest of this week's Heart Of Christmas cards over at Claire's Blog. I always look forward to seeing what everyone creates each week.

Bye for now,

Tina
