Christmas Card Club

northern flurry stampin' up! embossing - christmas messages
Another Christmas Card Club and I've come to post my card with great excitement that it's only Saturday night and I'll have it posted on time for tomorrow. Ah well that would be fantastic if I hadn't got the date wrong. This should have appeared last Sunday so I'm late, but have nonetheless enjoyed making this card. I'm also pleased that I've done a bit of upcycling by using the leftover die cut remains from this kit.

Can you tell which bit is upcycled?

Our challenge was set by the Mary and she set us the task of using red or featuring a heart.  Well I've used red and featured a heart because this card could be adapted very easily for Valentine's with a different embossing folder and sentiment. 
I love the heat embossed doily framing my heart and embellishments and the glimmer paper die cut left over was too lovely to go to waste.  We crafters just can't throw things away can we...... 
Of course I also loved using the Happenings Simply Created Card kit too making cards for all my clever hostesses who've booked a party during Sale-a-bration. 

I will be back soon.

Have a great week!

  5. Hi Zoe, thanks for your visit, and I love how you interpreted the theme. That is one beautiful heart, and the silver doily is so lovely. I'm also liking the silver framework covering that music bkgrnd that I see behind the lovely doily & heart.

  6. Hi Zoë, this a lovely card and a great take on Mary's challenge. Beautiful musical background and the red heart really pops off the card. Love it!
