Today I have another card using one of the new Heartfelt Creations "Classic Christmas Collection". I used the largest book from the "Book Frame 2 PreCut Set" (HCPC 3434). The music, from the "Book Frame 1 PreCut Set" (HCPC 3433) was lightly stamped on a separate piece of card stock with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink. The book was stamped over the music then cut out just inside the top pages of the book. Two more book frames were gold embossed on vanilla card stock and a third one gold embossed on burgundy card stock. Both the lighter books were sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink to give them an aged look. The music was glued to one of the lighter colored books. All the books were scored down the middle using a ScorBuddy. A piece of red velvet ribbon was attached to the back of the book with the music and pulled down the middle in the front. It was attached at the top with a little glue to keep it in place. A piece of i/8" ScorTape was placed on the score line of the lighter books and all three books attached together to give a layered look. A small piece of dimensional tape was place between the pages of the books to give the one book a look of fullness.
This is a 5x7" card. The green design paper is from the Graphic 45 "Christmas Emporium" 12x12 paper pad. I used the new Sizzix "Peace Poinsettia" (656988) embossing folder for the background. There are three embossing folders in this set. The candle is the Heartfelt Creations "Holiday Poinsettia Candle" (HCPC 3419). The poinsettia is layered. I love this candle and I know I use it a lot - isn't it perfect with this song book! The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations "Nativity Scene PreCut Set" (HPC 3431). It was gold embossed on the Sizzix embossed background. A gold leaf pen was used to add a gold border. To complete the card, gold beads were added to the center of the poinsettia.
