Hanging Hearts Christmas Card

Good morning hope you have all had a good weekend. It's another Christmas card today, this one I made after seeing this lovely card on Pinterest. Again I used the supplies I have to make a similar card.

I started with a red 4 x 6 card base and then cut mats from white and Kraft card. I used part of an MFT Stamps Blueprints set to add a stitched border to the top layer. 

Then I stamped a branch using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with True White Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder. I cut the branch out by hand and cut the leaves off to leave the branch bare. 

For the hearts, I used a Paper Smooches hearts die and cut them from white and red card. Then I punched a tiny snowflake from one of the hearts so you could see the red through. As it didn't show enough for me, I punched the snowflake again with red card and fitted it into the aperture. 

For another heart I punched a tiny red heart from red card and stuck this to the front. Then I used a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp, Be Joyful set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I used simple white string to tie the hearts on and stuck it with Cosmic Shimmer glue.

Hope you like it, take care and I'll see you on Wednesday.
