AWH Colour Creations Merry Merlot

While finishing off Christmas cards this week, I found time to create with Merry Merlot for the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop. This was made so much easier by focusing on using the perfectly co-ordinated papers and embellishments supplied by Stampin' Up! You can check out what other Art With Heart team members have made by clicking back to Catherine at What Cathy Made.

It was impossible to resist the Joyous Noel SDSP in the Holiday Catalogue, and many of you must have agreed, as the supplies were exhausted well before the end of the catalogue finishing date.*It appears to be back in stock 18/12/18. Every sheet of this paper was beautiful, and I have based the majority of my Christmas cards on this paper and a simple sentiment this year.

First Frost  stamp set and Frosted Bouquet Framelits dies are bundled together for a 10% saving for the life of this catalogue and they are carrying over for at least a little while after, but not with the bundle offer, so if you've been thinking about getting these you need to order before January 2nd. Although this is a relatively simple card, you do need to own a Big Shot to cut the label and frame, and the fancy copper sprig at the bottom. The other foliage is punched with the Sprig Punch (#148012 HC) and the Leaf Punch (#144667 AC) so if you haven't invested in a Big Shot yet, you could still replicate this card using the Everyday Label Punch (#144668 AC) for the sentiment.

The Merry Merlot & Copper ribbon was irresistable too, it is different on the other side, but this time I chose to highlight the copper side to tie the whole project together. All my cards have been posted now, how are you doing with yours?
