Tonight I am participating in the last Heart of Christmas share for this year.  Judy May co-ordinates these Christmas shares, and has a list on her blog of all participants.  We hope you will visit everyone's blogs, and, if you feel inspired to do so, leave us some comment love!

The beautiful Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Papers were carried over from last Christmas.  I used them a lot last year, but so far this year had not - so, they formed the starting point for my card.  I've used some papers in Pretty Peacock, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla, and added copper accents.

After adhering two vertical panels of patterned paper to a Very Vanilla piece of card, I used one of the Curvy Dies to cut the lower portion.  On a slightly larger mat of Very Vanilla card, I stamped (in Pretty Peacock ink) the sentiment, from the Curvy Christmas stamp set, and stuck the die-cut paper panel on top.

I stamped the mistletoe, in Pretty Peacock ink, on a Stitched Shape oval, and added some Very Vanilla die-cut  sprigs.  On a scrap of Very Vanilla card, I stamped the bow in Versamark ink, and embossed it with (now retired) copper embossing powder.  I have coloured the bow with Night of Navy Stampin' Blends.  The fussy-cut bow is popped up on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here's a closer view of the curvy die-cut edge, the sentiment, and a couple of the sweet copper Star Designer Elements:

I decorated the inside of the card with the strip of DSP that was trimmed off the front panel (after it had been cut with the Curvy Die):

  1. Fabulous card, Christine! You've lined up the die cut curve and the curved sentiment so perfectly, but I would expect no less from you!

  2. Beautiful, Christine, the feature of mistletoe is so pretty. I also love the way you cut the curvy die at the bottom with the panels on dsp.

  3. Lovely card Christine, I love Pretty Peacock for Christmas

  4. Beautiful card, Christine. I love how you have used the curvy die to make the space for the greeting. Love that sweet bow at the top of the mistletoe.

  5. Such an elegant card Christine and so much intricate detail to love on this card. The curvy die and curvy stamp detail at the bottom of your card is amazing.

  6. Gorgeous card, Christine. A lovely combination of the two dsp patterns.
