AWH HOC Week 4

Hi!


Welcome to the new week of Heart Of Christmas by the Art With Heart Team. Have you been following along each week? It's great seeing everyone's cards each week, all so different, but all so beautiful.

Having said that, I nearly made a different card for this week's Blog Share, as I wan't sure this one was beautiful enough. Then I thought about how silly that was - our cards don't need to be spectacular all of the time, it's nice to make some simpler designs too.

I started with the die cut deer from the Detailed Deer dies. I cropped it with a Stitched Rectangle die, and then used the next size up to crop a piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock. I then used the die two sizes smaller than that one to create a frame of Pretty Peacock. It was wide enough to attach the Crumb Cake deer panel, but not so wide that it could be seen underneath. I hope you get what I mean!

This was all popped up over a piece of DSP from the Night Before Christmas pack. I guess if you wanted to step up the card, you could turn the deer into a shaker card by adding a piece of Window Sheet and some sequins to the card. It wouldn't be hard at all!

The Pretty Peacock panel that I used on the front was cropped from a larger piece of card, so I used the off cut to frame the Whisper White writing panel for the inside, along with the left over strip of DSP from the front of the card. So that the piece stood out from the Pretty Peacock base I trimmed it a little smaller and added a thin matt of Crumb Cake cardstock. Both sentiments on the card are from the So Many Stars stamp set.

So there's my simple card for this week's Heart Of Christmas Blog Share. I hope you like it! Now it's time to head on over to Claire's blog, where you can find the rest of this week's links.

Bye for now,

Tina

  1. This is awesome Tina! You are right, we are all about showcasing a range of ideas for different styles and budgets. This is a great way to use DSP, but also show some uses for negative die cut pieces. Thanks for playing along in week 4 of Heart of Christmas.

  2. This is a fabulous card, Tina. Love all the details and that background paper looks great. I think a shaker card would be awesome, too.
