Pear & Partridge Christmas Scrapbook Pages

I LOVE Close To My Heart’s
Christmas paper pack this year! 

I am a traditionalist, and enjoy the red, green colors of Christmas…but I also was quite DELIGHTED at how CTMH brought neutral tones into this paper pack as well! 
I was excited to create items using the Pear & Partridge paper pack and here are two items I created!!

When I host a home gathering, we always complete our evening together by creating a card.  

This is the card we have created at my most recent home gatherings…

I LOVE how this card turned out…but it was SO simple to create!!!

One of my new FAVORITE embellishments is our Silver Shimmer Ribbon – the BEST part…it’s ADHESIVE backed!!!!

If you would like to re-create this card on your own…
here are some more details! J

I used page 65 in the Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut the bracket frames (rctngle 8)
Rectangle 8 key- Art Philosophy - page 65 

I used the page 80 of the Artiste cartridge for the poinsettia flower.

(poinsettia flower sizes listed below)

I also used my go-to idea book – the Make It From Your Heart, vol. 1., pattern #27
Make it From your Heart book _HowTo_Cover
  This book is used as my “starting point”…I can create so much FASTER, just by looking at the FUN sketches in this book!!!


I know not everyone enjoys card making J…so I also create a 2 page layout to show everyone at my parties.

I create the layout by using the card design we made at the party and incorporating that card into scrapbook pages! Pear   Part layout_Glory to God_crop

I again used the MIFH how-to book and I used pattern #5.

Take a look at these poinsettias on the layout…

After cutting these from the Artiste cartridge, I took my bone folder and scored the center of each flower petal. I then inked the flowers in ruby ink.

How did I create the leaves?
They are the SAME flower shape as the poinsettias!!!!
I tore off 2 green points of my flower, and left 3 “leaves” to add to the bottom of my poinsettia flower!

For the finishing touches of the card, I added BROWN & TAN sparkles in the center of my flowers. I also sponged the edges in our new CASHMERE ink.
