Heart of Christmas, week 5


More Christmas cheer from the Art with Heart Team for you today.


This card was inspired by one shown by Claire Daly a couple of weeks ago. It uses the sleigh from the Santa's Sleigh thinlits, with the top layer in Gold Foil and the base layer cut from the Wood Textures DSP. The background stamping uses the large tree from Lovely as a Tree in Tranquil Tide ink. 

           
To get a lovely shimmer in the background I painted the tree Stamp with the Wink of Stella pen and then stamped. I repeated this a couple of times. 
The little holy sprig was stamped with the Holly Berry Happiness set and punch out with the Holly punch. I covered the berries with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and allowed it to dry before I assembled the card.
The Greeting is from the Christmas Pines stamp set and is embossed in gold. I've added a little more Cherry Cobbler with some of the the Double Stitched Ribbon. A couple of small banner ends from Gold Glimmer paper finishes the from of the card.

A complete list of the team members with Christmas cheer can be found on  Claire Daly's blog.

Less than six months till Christmas, time to get started.
Happy Stampin,
Rachel
