Crafty with Caly: Heart of Christmas

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Please join me in welcoming back special bi-monthly guest Caly Person with a gorgeous holiday card to help you kickstart your season of making! Be sure to watch the video for more details and enjoy!

Hello! Thanks for joining me today as I share a colorful holiday card using the Heart of Christmas products.  I love that there is a stamp, die and stencil that coordinate, but can all be used on their own!  Because I wanted a row of them on my card, today’s card is a 5” x 7” card.

I have a quick video sharing my progress and hope you’ll check it out!

WATCH THE VIDEO:

I used the Heart of Christmas stamp to stamp a light image to use as a guide for the Heart of Christmas stencil using Barely Beige ink.  You could just eyeball the stencil, but since I wanted to use the Outline Heart of Christmas die, it’s important that the ink-blended hearts are in the right place.

If you didn’t have the stencil and only had the dies, you could certainly color the parts and in-lay them just as easily for the same look, but I just love stencils! Plus, it gives me the bonus of being able to use the Pawsitively Saturated Inks.  I ink-blended my hearts with Limelicious, Cheeky and Blush inks.  For the stars, I used Lemonade. Then for tree trunks, I used Khaki ink.

To ground my colorful trees, I used paper strips that I die-cut using the smallest of the Strips Die 1 set from Green Apple, Green Leaf, Cotton Candy, and Doll Pink cardstock.  I placed my Outline Heart of Christmas die-cuts over the paper strips and finished by adhering a sentiment strip from the Reverse Love Peace Joy Sentiment Strips.

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Thanks so much for visiting today!  ~Caly
