AWH HOC Week 25

Hi!

Welcome to this week's Heart Of Christmas.


This week I decided to make a card from scratch, rather than modify a Watercolour Christmas Kit card. My daughter participated in a choral festival of music recently, and one of the sections of the performance was a retelling of The Nutcracker. It straight away made me think of the Christmas Around The World DSP, so that's the paper I reached for this week.

I also wanted to use the new Tinsel Trim. I needed a 'reason' for it to be on the card, so I ended up splitting the front panel and using the trim to divide the two patterns. The tinsel is fabulous - a little bulky for mailed cards when you tie a bow - but a fun, sparkly addition to any card!

Another Holiday Catalogue product that I hadn't used much is the Black Rhinestones - not just for Halloween, they make a nice addition to the sentiment panel on my card.

The tinsel was a little bulky to add to the inside, so I opted for a strip of Real Red cardstock to edge the DSP. The sentiment is from Hearts Come Home.

As usual, pop on over to Claire's blog where you can find the links to the rest of the team participating today. Not many weeks left now!

Bye for now,

Tina
