Hearts Come Home

I seem to have fallen in love with the Black-White & Red Christmas Cards using the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Papers.  You can see all of the patterns in this paper stack below.  They are all black and white.  Real Red accents gives these papers just the pop they need.  As I mentioned in previous posts, these papers are a lightweight paper printed with traditional Christmas Carols and musical themes, which means its perfect for holiday wrapping or easy to work with if making paper rosette.   This lightweight paper includes 4 sheets of 6 double sided designed.  That's 24 sheets verses most of our Designer Series Papers, with only 12 sheets. Perfect for making large quantities of Christmas Cards economically.    

The basecard is Thick Whisper White, then a Real Red layer, and then the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.  

I used the  Hearts Come Home Stamps on a circle from the Stitched Shapes die, a scalloped  circle cut with the layering circles dies, and a star from the Wood Crate Framelit die,      

I used one of the sentiments from the Hearts come Home set and hand cut a banner for the sentiment.  The sentiment is stamped in Real Red.  The buildings are stamped in Basic Black Archival, with Smoky Gray accents.   

I added a White Metallic Edge ribbon to the top of the card.  You can look back of addition posts on my blog this week to see more of the Black and White Christmas Card series I've been working on.  

Below, you can see slightly different versions as I played with placement of the circle images and the bow on the left is a single layer bow, while the bow on the right is a double layer bow.  I often make two samples of every card I make to give me the chance to try slightly different variations of the same card to test which layout or placements I like better.
