Introducing O Holy Night from Heartfelt Creations

Kia Ora Koutou

I am so excited to share the release of the O Holy Night collection from Heartfelt Creations.  It is a gorgeous collection featuring traditional colours and designs that is sure to suit everyone.

Celebrate and create inspirational Christmas greetings that spread the true meaning of the holiday season with the O Holy Night Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Immerse yourself in the Christmas story right alongside the angels who announced the Savior’s birth, the shepherds who received the good news, as well as the loving family who welcomed the holy babe in Bethlehem so many years ago! Swaddled in a traditional color palette of reds and greens mingled with hues of midnight blues, golden starlight yellows and snowy whites, this festive paper collection has been beautifully wrapped with tender lace like details, charming plaids, flowing swirls, and elegant brocades all nestled among pretty poinsettias, delicate snowflakes, fanciful Christmas ornaments and gentle images depicting that holy night when Christ was born! Three exquisite cling stamp sets along with coordinating dies provide wonderful options for creating dimensional nativity scenes, holiday themed accents such as an old fashioned scroll, a pinecone with greenery, as well as an assortment of beautifully scripted Christmas sentiments in a variety of styles perfect for all of your holiday card making! The substantially sized and intricately detailed ornament die is magnificent for creating wonderful focal point images on card fronts, stunning accents on scrapbook layouts, or for creating ornament shaped cards ready to deliver your Christmas greetings to friends and loved ones! So pause, reflect and spread the message of God’s love given that holy night so many thousands of years ago as you create and send off holiday wishes with the O Holy Night Collection.

I have two projects to share – the first one is a wreath that I have made with poinsettias, pine cones and ribbons.  This would make a perfect door hanging at Christmas time.
