Merry & Bright

October 24, 2017

I have been playing with the Hearts Come Home stamp set to create cards to my upcoming Beachmere classes.  I thought this one would be easy but it seems to have taken on a mind of its own.  However, while we might not make this in class, it is still a lovely card and I thought I would share with you my attempted case of one (which I can’t find now) by Lorraine Clinch.   I stamped the greeting from Hearts Come Home onto the lower right hand corner of scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White using Dapper Denim ink.  I embossed a panel of Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and attached it to the left hand side of the card front.  I cut a circle from Dapper Denim card and used the “star” die in the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies to create the starry night sky.  I cut the houses from Whisper White card, also using one of the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies.  I also cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the same die.  I cut the houses from the Glimmer Paper die cuts and attached the glimmer paper over the Whisper White die cuts.  I attached the two die cuts one on top of the other to the Dapper Denim circle.   I cut a circle from Whisper White card using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  The Dapper Denim circle is attached behind the circle opening in the Whisper White card.  I wrapped the bottom of the Whisper White card with Dapper Denim Ruffled Ribbon (retired) and tied a knot.  The Whisper White panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I cut Dapper Denim card with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies.  I also cut the same die from Whisper White card.  I trimmed the houses from the Whisper White card and embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  I attached the Whisper White card to the Dapper Denim Edgelit before attaching to the bottom edge of the inside of the card.

Although this card wasn’t as simple as I thought it would be I am still very happy with the way it turned out.   What do you think?

Bye for now,

Kris
