The Beauty of Christmas

The Beauty of Christmas

Hi everyone and thanks for popping by today.  I am happy to be here with another project for Heartfelt Creations featuring the new Festive Christmas Collection!


and of course the flowers!


lastly, here is view of what the card looks like open.


Products Used:

HCPC 3557 – Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set
HCPC 3622 – O Little Town PreCut Set
HCPC 3625 – Festive Notes PreCut Set
HCD 734 – Sun Kissed Fleur Die
HCDP1 246 – Festive Christmas Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Gold Majesty Circles
Labels 4
Spellbinders Tool N’ One

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock, Velum, Pearls, Distressed Ink, Ribbon and bling from my stash and die cutting machine.


Start by making a 5″ x 7″ card out of White card stock and cover the front in a slightly smaller piece of paper from the Festive Christmas Collection.  Center the largest die from the Gold Majesty Circles die set and cut through both the layers on the front of the card.  To make the frame, I cut the same die out of another piece of White card stock and then fussy cut around the outside of the die cut.  To make the window, using Versamark, stamp and heat emboss the Festive Notes PreCut Set on a piece of Velum and attach it to the inside of the front of the card.  Once your window is complete, stamp and color the ornament from the O Little Town PreCut Set and fasten it to the center of the card.  Build your flowers using the Christmas Poinsettia PreCut Set and the Sun Kissed Fleur Die and decorate the card as desired.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
