Holiday card

 This is a card I created using the stamps and design paper from the new Heartfelt Creations "Gateway to the Seasons" collection.  Heartfelt Creations has thought ahead and given us stamps in this new collection so we can start creating our holiday cards early.  The new stamps and holiday design papers are gorgeous.

I am really disappointed in my picture of this card.  I used a corner from a pretty piece of the design paper in this collection for the background.  The paper has the design in the upper corner and you can see small snowflakes in the background.  The paper is actually green but I could not get the color to show up in a photo.  The dark green design paper will be especially pretty for a masculine card. 

I used one of the stamps in the "Winter Season PreCut Set" and stamped it using VersaMark Ink then embossed it using Vanilla embossing powder in the lower right side.  In this collection there is a large stamp with many, many little words on it that you can cut apart and create any sentiment or verse you want.   

This is a picture of the "All Sseasons Sentiments PreCut" stamp and even though you probably can't read all the words in this photo, you can see how many words you have to work with- there are words for any occasions.   Each word has a black border around it.   You just cut out whatever sentiment you want and glue them down individually.  I love the serenity of the Winter  Scene,  so chose to add the words "Celebrate the Peace and Beauty" rather than choosing the words Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays.  I love this Winter scene and I'm sure will create many Christmas cards with it this year.  It will be a fun stamped image to color too.  Did you see the little snowman in front of the pine tree?

You can purchase this Heartfelt Creations "Gateway to the Seasons" collection from Joan's Gardens.
