Christmas with Merriest Moments
Hi. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the Art with Heart Team 2021 Heart of Christmas Blog Hop.
I have 2 cards to share for this week's projects, both featuring the Merriest Moments bundle. I am fascinated with the hybrid embossing folder and love the coordination of the more intricate die cut and the embossing folder which covers most of a standard card front. Given the embossed detail, a sentiment on the centre label and some stamped/die cut poinsettias & leaves are all that are needed. The colour scheme I used is inspired by the gorgeous Whimsy and Wonder Speciality Designer Series Paper (just using a few of the colours).
Card 2: The second card's Basic White card-front was also embossed but a second piece of Basic White card-stock was used to die cut the leafy frame and this was passed through the embossing folder. It created such a beautiful effect. The centre panel was adhered to the underneath embossed panel leaving the frame of leaves free to add more dimension.
I also had a couple of Mint Macaron pine fronds left over so they were added to the Basic White card inner. Sometimes a little decoration is all that is needed. A C6 Basic White Envelope was stamped in Mint Macaron ink with some of the same fronds to coordinate.
There is so much more Christmas creativity. To continue with the blog hop, click on the "onto the next" graphic below to be taken to the blog of an amazing and talented person, Tina Gillespie. I always look forward to checking out Theresa's creations as well as everyone else's.
Hope to see you next week for another AWHT Heart of Christmas Blog Hop. There is so much Christmas inspiration to share using Stampin' Up!'s products and preparing early for Christmas will minimize some of the stresses of the silly season.
