The Heart of Christmas Week 2

My First Christmas Card for 2017
"Christmas Sparkle"

Hello Fellow Crafters

Our amazing Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team is doing this share with some Inspiration for Christmas and I'm joining in on this to get started on my Christmas Cards ( I know it's only June but hey I need to get started early) and to share with you some of the wonderful products Stampin' Up! have to offer in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. So here is my 1st project 

On this Simple Easel Card I have used the Thick Whisper White Cardstock for the base cut at 28.6 x 10.5 cm (11 1/4 x 4 1/8 inch) scored at 14.3 cm (5 5/8 Inch)
the Garden Green mat layer is 10 x 13.7 cm (3 7/8 x 5 3/8 inch)
I have stamped in versamark ink the stars and the sentiment from the stamp set "Christmas Pines". 
I wiped my pieces of cardstock that I was going to emboss with my Embossing Buddy so that the powder would only be where I wanted it to be
 I then mixed dazzling diamonds Stampin' Glitter and White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat embossed the stars so they would sparkle (which they do you just can't see it in the photo)
 I also heat embossed the sentiment in the White Stampin' Emboss Powder on a Piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 

I have laid across the middle of the card some of Stampin' Up's 3.2mm (1/8 inch) Silver Ribbon which is so beautiful and used Tombow Multipurpose Glue to put all the pieces together.

The last thing I did was to cut the sentiment into the flag shape and layer it on with Stampin' Dimensionals 

I hope you like this card and I think it is such a simple card that you could make a few at a time
