Christmas Card Club #3: The Colour Red or Feature A Heart

Hello there! I'm back with another festive number and this time it's for the Christmas Card Club. Our hostess this fortnight is Mary H and, inspired by Valentines Day, she has challenged us to create a Christmas card with the colour RED or a HEART. Well, I decided to use both and came up with something that looks like this:


This is a 5" square card. The background paper is from Papermania's
Signature Christmas collection.  The central heart is from WMS's Seasons of Love Tags,
stamped with Versacolor Cardinal. The sentiment inside is also from the
same set, stamped with Versafine Black Onyx.

Here's the twist. I stamped and cut out the heart 3 times and adhered them
together with 1mm foam tape. This gives the heart an interesting 3-D effect.
I got this idea from Bev of Uniko Studio. She made this Love Dimension card
by layering 8 die-cuts. I got bored after 3! But take a look at what Bev achieved.

To finish my card, I added some sheer red ribbon and teeny tiny red bling.


Following through with the heart theme on the inside too. This sentiment
is also from the Seasons of Love Tags set.


I'm taking my card to the following challenges:

CHNC February Extra: AG Christmas
Make It Monday #177: AG
Word Art Wednesday #117: AG Inspirational
Crafty Hazelnut's February Patterned Paper Challenge: AG
Treasured Times #11: AG With Layering - layered the heart
Kreativeinkauf-Challenge #11: Heart
Open Minded Crafting Fun #3: Show Some Love

That's all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you've been inspired to add a little Valentine love to your Christmas creations. I have to say, Mary picked great theme for us. On that note, my friends, I wish you a blessed Sunday.

Beijinhos!
