Oh my goodness! Is it December already?! This week the Heart 2 Heart challenge is to use something from Close to My Heart's Seasonal Holiday Expressions catalog supplement. There is no question that I had to use this year's Christmas theme paper, White Pines. This week the Atlantic Hearts sketch is a particularly fun one:
I love designs where you can use scraps or create a sampler of the papers in a packet. Now you may have noticed that the sentiment is on clear plastic. (It was fun trying to photograph it without reflections.) This made it interesting to attach to the background. I finally settled on liquid glass, using a pin to apply the smallest dabs behind the leaf parts. I think I managed to adhere it without the adhesive showing. This card is also unusual for me because I did not do any stamping on the front nor did I embellish with any sparkles or Stickles. I did use a little bit of ink though to edge the lamb in chocolate to help him stand out.
Thank you for stopping by! Until next time, Hansi
