HC Warmest Christmas Wishes 02jpgHeartfelt Creations Warm Wishes

Hello, Friends!  Can you believe it’s the first Wednesday in September already?  This year is just flying by, and I have to tell you, I’m having a hard time keeping up with the speed of it!  I have another lovely Festive Christmas card to share with you on this Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.  You’ll find a complete supply list and a detailed tutorial for making this card at the end of this post.

One of the things I love about the Festive Christmas Collection is its versatility.  You can use the same papers and stamps with different techniques and achieve completely new looks.  In this card, I stamped the Festive Christmas Background Stamp onto Vellum, then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I tore a section of the sentiment out and layered it over my paper.  The result was a wonderful frosty, holiday card.

HC Warmest Christmas Wishes 01aI added lots of metal accents to play up the gold embossing.

HC Warmest Christmas Wishes 04And you all know how much I love my Diamond Stickles!  They were strategically added tot he ornaments to add sparkle and shine.

HC Warmest Christmas Wishes 03aThe inside came together in a snap, thanks to the sentiment panels within the collection.

HC Warmest Christmas Wishes 05Do you have a lot of holiday cards to make this year?  I’m curious…do you make multiple copies of the same card, or do you make a stack of all different cards to send out to friends and family?  I’d love to hear your answer in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by…I’ll have another Festive Christmas card to share with you on Friday, so be sure to stop by then.

Cheerio,

kathy

    I love the frosty look of this Christmas card! The gold and vellum look fabulous and the gold in the ribbon is a wonderful detail. I don’t like to make the same card over and over, so I create lots of different cards to send out to friends and family. The only hard part is deciding which card to send to each person! I also can’t believe that September is already here! I’ve been working on Halloween projects, but I know I need to start doing holiday items…the most joyful season of all will be upon us before we know it! Love your holiday card, dear Kathy!

    Hi Kathy, this is a super card. Love all the glitter and bright colors. Love it.

    I have made my Thanksgiving cards, used the same theme but change colors, an some accents. My Christmas I will do the same. trying to decide now which design to use.. Probably will be more than one design, as I have different ages, and different countries to think about.My biggest challenge is many to make. Hoping to have my crafty cave finished with new shelves, an
    sorted by end of this month. As I will need the whole month of Oct to make them. November will have company. Pray for me to be organized and free from frustration of time. Just want enjoy.
    may need to stop entering challenges until after the holidays. with so much going on here.
