First a clarification about my last post – I had a question about the Daydream Medallions Wreath card. I neglected to include that I used a 1 3/4 circle punch for the centre of the top medallion. I then free cut an opening in the bottom medallion that was slightly larger. The top medallion covers this up so it does not have to be a perfect cut. Sorry that I forgot to include this info in my post.
Now, on to today’s card. I have to say that I really like how this one came together. I saw a “quilted” heart on a card while perusing the internet. I really like how it looked and wanted to use one on a card. I had intended to make a thinking of you card but found some inspiration when looking through my stamps to find a sentiment. The Christmas sentiment – welcome Christmas into you heart – from the Heard from the Heart stamp set combined with the “quilted” heart could be used to create a “cozy” Christmas card:
I created the heart by adhering 4 pieces of coordinating pattern paper to a piece of copy paper and used a framelit to cut it out. I played up the “quilting” by faux stitching along the “seams” and embossing it. To keep with the theme, I added faux stitching to the Very Vanilla layer and distressed the edges of both layers. A simple bow using bakers twine completed the card.
It’s a very simple Christmas card but I think that this one is my favourite so far this year.
Thanks for looking!
