Heart of Christmas - Seasons of Christmas
July 25, 2022
Last week in the Heart of Christmas blog hop, I showed you two cards using the Seasons of Christmas bundle.
This week, I am using the very same set and colours, (actually I am using up all the leftover pieces from last week) but I have changed the backgrounds and rearranged the pieces completely.Each week until the end of Novermber, the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team demonstrators will show different ideas for making Christmas projects using Stampin' Up! products.
These are the sets I used last week, Christmas Season and Christmas to Remember stamp sets, and the Seasonal Labels Dies.
I have made a basic tri-fold card - cutting the A4 card lengthwise at 14.85cm and scoring into three panels, with the card front and card back being 10.5cm, and the right hand panel which folds inside being approximately 9cm.
The front of the card is very simple. I have cut a window with the largest label die from the Seasonal Labels Dies, attached a greeting across the window, and some foliage just below the greeting.
The inside (right hand panel) has lots of the leftover pieces from last week arranged into a wreath, with some of the pieces popped up with Dimensionals, and others attached with Mini Glue Dots.
Here's another view with a close up of those pieces - hopefully you can see which ones are popped up.
I've used the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper for the background layer on this panel, and a slightly different pattern from the same pack on the inside panel where you would write your message.
I really love these traditional colours with these stamp sets, and I think that patterned paper suits it so well, rather than just white or cream inserts.
Time for you to go and visit the other creative stampers in the AWH Heart of Christmas Blog Hop. You can click the box below to be taken to Caroline Mainwaring's blog - I can't wait to see what she has created.

Below are the products I have used for this project. Enjoy the blog hop and hope to see you again next week!
I love the window of this card and all the little details. Just beautiful!

This is really beautiful, Kathryn. I love the placement of the foliage on the outside and inside of the card, and your use of DSP for the writing panel. Gorgeous card!

Beautiful card Kathryn, the window in the front piece perfectly frames your wreath on the second layer and the DSP you chose for the background looks quite Christmassy even though it’s not.

What a fabulous card! I love that the wreath carries over the two layers of your card. The lucky recipient will love opening all the gorgeous layers of your card.

A gorgeous trifold card Kathryn. Isn’t it good to have enough leftovers to be able to create another card. I love your created wreath and that it can be seen through to the front of the card. Love your choice of DSP too. Xxx

This is a gorgeous card, Kathryn! The wreath reveal as you open the card is so effective and I love these traditional colours too.

Beautiful card Kathryn and I love how the wreath is revealed as you open the card. Just love the use of DSP for the writing panel.

What a lovely card Kathryn, I love that it is a trifold card and the window had the wreath pop out it and then you open it out! Gorgeous!

This is a great fun fold card, Kathryn, it just keeps on giving as you open the layers, brilliant!

A lovely tri-fold card Kathryn. The pinecones peeping through the die cut window look great!
