It's lovely to be back. I've been a little quiet for a week or two while I rested and got some treatment for a painful shoulder. It's slowly getting there.
Even though I didn't make the time cut off for this week's Heart of Christmas Blog Hop, I wanted to post my card. If you want to follow the Art with Heart Team Blog Hop for week 10 of Heart of Christmas, start HERE at Tina's blog (after checking out my card of course!)
This week's Christmas card is a relatively simple layout with a bit of wow. I wanted to showcase the Be Dazzling DSP coloured with Stampin' Blends. You can only EARN the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper for FREE with a $90+ order until the 30th September when Saleabration ends. This paper is gorgeous and you get eight 6x6" sheets in a pack.
I've used the Real Red Stampin' Blends on these letters after I had die cut them using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Before I die-cut, I added a piece of self adhesive foam sheet to the back of the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. This gives the letter extra dimension.
The letters were adhered to an adhesive rectangle die cut (I added some scrap cardstock to the back of the DSP first to give it extra weight). As the foam adhesive sheets are adhesive on both sides, all I needed to do was remove the backing sheet from the letters to adhere them. I popped a Holiday Rhinestone either end for some embellishment. This piece was then attached with Dimensionals to the base card which is Sahara Sand with some DSP pieces from both Painted Christmas DSP and Tidings of Christmas DSP. I then tucked some foliage underneath which was cut from the Sprig Punch (out of the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper) and a die cut from the Forever Flourishing Dies (out of Evening Evergreen cardstock).
I hope you have enjoyed today's card.
