Welcome to Week 8 of our Heart of Christmas weekly blog hops. I'm actually having a week off this week as I enjoy the second week of school holidays with my boys and my Mum and sister who are visiting from interstate. One of my team members (Ros Davidson)  is hosting the blog hop names, and I will refer you to her blog at the end of my post.

For today's card, I am showing you another way to use the copper wire star embellishments. I really love these, and the coordinating Joyous Noel DSP with the lovely copper foil accents.

I have copper embossed my image, so that it coordinates with the DSP. I love the look of the Merry Merlot shimmer paper with the DSP too. To attach the wire stars, I used some Tear 'n Tape double sided tape for the pieces that would be under the circle (this did most of the work), and then a glue dot for the bit that was showing.

Now it's time to head over to Ros Davidson's blog as Ros is hosting the blog hop this week while I take a week off.

Thanks for stopping by this week. Have a happy and creative week,

Claire

The copper embellishments work amazing with the DSP, I must buy some. Great tip on adhering the stars in place.

Caroline

Claire, that is such a gorgeous combination of Merry Merlot and the copper. The wire stars look great and thanks for sharing how you attached them.

Diane Furniss

love the Joyous DSP and the copper embellishments really look lovely on this card Claire.

Kate Morgan

Thanks for sharing this beautiful card, as I had no idea what to use that background piece of DSP for!!! You have made it work really well on this card with the Merlot glimmer and copper accents.

Judy May

Lovely card, Claire. I too found this sheet of DSP challenging. It always looks different in a smaller piece, though.

Theresa

Love this color combo Claire and the way the Merry Merlot glimmer paper just pops
