Heart of Christmas week 20 Merriest Moments and Heartfelt Wishes


Here is week 20 of the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop with the team from Art With Heart. After this week we only have two more weeks of Heart of Christmas Blog Hops to go. I hope you've started your cards already, Christmas will be here before we know it!

This week's card was inspired by a Thanksgiving card I saw on Pinterest, but unfortunately there was no watermark on the pin so I don't know who the original artist was.

I heat embossed the Merry Christmas from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set in Gold Emboss Powder on Cherry Cobbler card stock. I trimmed the ends of the greeting were cut using the Banners Pick A Punch.

The gold foliage behind the greeting was cut and embossed using the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder, which includes coordinating dies. I used one of the sheets from the Brushed Metallic Foil pack.

The background Mossy Meadow card stock was embossed with the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. I even managed to get the music notes the correct way up on my card. :)

The final embellishment on my card was some Gilded Gems.

Now it's time to see what the very lovely Rosa Leyden has to share with us.

Thanks for visiting,

Happy stamping,


  1. This is a really elegant, and simply beautiful, card, Rach! I love the sentiment embossed in gold on Cherry Cobbler, and the gold foliage behind it looks so sumptuous. The dry-embossed background is really eye-catching. It's all just beautiful!

  2. The brushed metal foil behind the sentiment is really lovely, Rachel and compliments the gold embossed sentiment and the Gilded Gems perfectly.

  3. That brushed metal foil embossed layer looks incredible, Rachel! What an elegant Christmas card.

  4. Very clever use of the hybrid embossing folder Rachel. Your card is very elegant. I particularly like the gold embossed greeting on the Cherry Cobbler banner.

  5. The brushed metallic foil die cut and embossed melody background makes this a very elegant card Rachel.
