The Heart of Christmas - Week 5


Hello and welcome to another beautiful day.

Hope you are having a wonderful week. How are you going with your Christmas cards? Are you able to create with our Art with Heart team, I hope so.  Don’t forget that there are members of the team playing along each week and you can click on the banner at the top of the post to jump to our wonderful team leader’s blog Claire Daly to get all the links or just click on Claire’s name for all the Christmas inspiration.

In this weeks Heart of Christmas get together I have made a fancy fold card so let the countdown continue …..there are only 23 Wednesdays including today until the last week of November. 

Today I used the Star of Light stamp set on page 122 of the annual catalogue and the coordinating Starlight Thinlits dies on page 216.





For this card I have made a swing easel card. There are quite a few different easel card designs that you can make but I thought that this one really highlighted the beautiful star that you cut out with the Starlight Thinlits dies.





I have used the Be Merry DSP this week and along with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper on the star. To hold up our easel card the new clear faceted gem has been used.  For a full list of the products used check out the list at the end of the post.


When you want to write your greeting there is space to do this on the back of your card.  Here you can see the card closed at the front and then turned over so that you can write on the back to your friend or loved one.


Don’t forget to contact me for more information on how to make this card, on how to get your hands on the new Annual Catalogue and any of your Stampin’ Up goodies.
