Hearts Come Home

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I send you the Hearts Come Home Christmas card I designed.  I am sure you all have your cards made and mailed so you may want to consider these products for next year!  Imagine being that far ahead….  so Merry Christmas and may your heart find its home in the Father as your family returns home to celebrate with you!

I enjoy this card style with its flap on the front that reveals all the layers on the inside to make an eye pleasing card.

The stamp set and framelits are on page 39 of the Holiday catalog, bundled for a 10% discount- wood #146065, clear #146068.

The inside greeting and the bow  are from Holly Berry Happiness, pg. 118 of the Annual Catalog – #142061

The medallion is made with the hearts square from Window Box Thinlits and then cut with the #3 Regular Circle Framelit and backed by a red foil circle cut with the same framelit and offset just a little.

Card Base – Thick Whisper White, 7 3/4″ X 4 1/4″    Score at 5 1/2″

Red Foil Inside Layer – 4″ X 5 1/4″

Top Layer Inside – Regular Whisper White,  3 3/4″ X 5″  First, stamp the greeting and run through the Big Shot to cut out the village, then emboss with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder #139672.  Pull back slightly on the village pieces to make them stand out.

First Layer of the outside panel – Red Foil – 2″ X 4″

Second Layer of the panel – Regular Whisper White – 1 3/4″ X 3 3/4″ – Embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder

First Layer of the outside flap – Red Foil – 4 1/4″ X  3″

Second Layer of the flap – Regular Whisper White – 4  X  2  3/4″ Stamp the greeting close to the right edge so you have room for the church.  After stamping, emboss with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.

Third Layer of the flap – Village Cut out – regular Whisper White –  4 1/2″  X  3″  The trick here is to line your framelit up so the tree on the right side of the house is just at the right edge of the paper.  The framelit will not reach to the left edge so you will fussy cut to the edge and then you will cut off the tree at the right hand side and mount it at the edge of the left hand side, covering up the dent made by your framelit. The goal is to move the church to the right to leave room for the medallion.

Behind the scene – Red Foil – 4 1/2″ X  3″   – use the same alignment as you did with the white top layer detailed above.

Medallion – Red Foil – 2″ X 2″  Cut with #3 circle framelit, (old set) – 1 1/2″  circle framelit in the new set.  The Window Box Thinlits dies #142762 is used with a 2″ X 2″ piece of regular Whisper White.  The hearts are cut and then they are cut again with the circle framelit.

The bow is white embossed with the Holly Berry Happiness #142061 outline bow stamp on red foil – 1 3/4″ X 1 1/2″ and punched with the Holly Berry Builder Punch  #141843.

A touch of grey on the bell topped with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush #141897 finishes up your card!
