Christmas Night

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today sees the launch of some exciting new products from Heartfelt Creations and they are so amazing to work with.  Included in the new products are some shadow boxes and layered oval and circle dies.  Here I am showing a card made using the smaller shadow box with the Winter’s Eve collection. I love the depth you can get with the boxes and here I have paired it up with the Window Frame die to create a magical Christmas card.

  1. I always love a peek at people’s Christmas trees in their windows. They make houses so festive. And I love cards with windows, both looking out and looking in. Yours is so pretty with a look through a garden window into a gorgeous home on Christmas night! 🙂
