Watch this tutorial for tips on using the Festive Holly collection https://youtu.be/PufXslTDQhs.

Instructions: Cut a top fold card at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" from heavy white cardstock. Cut the base layer from olive green cardstock at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4". Cut the designer paper from Festive Holly Collection at 5 x 5". Add some additional snow with the gel pen on the designer paper and sponge edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using Stack & Store Daubers. Add some twine and adhere the layers with double sided tape.

Stamp the image with the cardinals and the wheel from the Festive Holly Stamp Set onto Copic compatible paper. I used X-Press It. The image was colored with the following Copic color combo - (Birds R20, R22, R24, R27, C1, C3, C5, C7 - Berries R20, R22, R24, R59 - Leaves YR13, YG61, YG63, YG67, GY95 - Wheel E30, E33, E35, E37, E47). Die cut the image with the coordinating die. Cut 4 additional die cut images from dark brown or black cardstock. Adhere the layers of the brown die cut on top of another and adhere to the colored image using Dries Clear Adhesive. This will add strength and some dimension to the focal image. Pop up the focal image on the left side of the card using dimensional foam dots. 

Stamp the sentiment with Versamark Ink and emboss with white powder. Heat set. Die cut with a tag tie and add snow using various size dots with a white gel pen. Pop the tag up using dimensional dots and apply a rhinestone to the bow. 

Apply a generous coat of Clear Crackle Paint the the bottom of the card and to the top of the wheel as shown. Sprinkle with a generous amount of Frosting Powder and heat set. This will complete a winter, snowy look to your holiday card.

Join the two 12" strips and fold the scores at regular mountain and valley. Join the two ends to with glue gun place it on a small piece of paper to form the rosette. 

Die cut 2 pieces using the circle die with 1/8" less and adhere to each other along with a scalloped circle die.

Stamp and die cut multiple pieces from the HCD1-7146 Festive Holiday Die and stamp using Frosted Amber distress oxide. Shade and shape the sides of the holly leaves using frosted Amber, Iced Spruce distress ink and Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Once colored, add Rajni Chawla's frosted powder and heat set. For the snow also I have used the Frosting Powder by Rajni Chawla on top of the berries and leaves.

First, place the rosette and then place the stack of die cut circles. Adhere and arrange the cluster of holly leaves and berries on a base of mesh and some dry artificial leaves. To finish sprinkle and heat set some snow using the frosted powder.

Instructions: My little rocking horse came in pieces, so I started by painting all of the pieces before I assembled it. Let dry. Assemble your pieces. 

Stamp and die cut 1 set of just the bells from Holly Berry Jingle in Peanut Brittle ink. I added just a thin layer of the gold paint to each bell. Stamp and die cut 2 of the large holly clusters and 1 of the small holly clusters in black ink. I added colour first using the dark green pencil for shading and then with my Chameleon pens. Shape all of your holly leaves. I snipped most clusters into pieces to suit the spaces I wanted them in. I adhered them to the rocking horse using hot glue. I added Stickles to all of the holly berries and the bells to the clusters also using hot glue. Tie a bow around the middle post of the rocking horse. Then I added the red gems to the base of the rocking horse.

Watch this tutorial for tips on using the Festive Holly collection https://youtu.be/PufXslTDQhs.

Instructions: Start by die cutting the Festive Holiday Die 10 times out of White card stock. You can do more or less but I found 10 worked for the look I wanted. Score all 10 in the middle and use your bone folder for a nice clean edge. Once you have them all scored glue the 10 pieces back to back stopping before you glue the last 2 pieces together. We will do that later. Set this aside and let your glue cure fully.

Next die cut the Labels Forty-Two die 4 times and score down the middle and glue together like the previous step stopping before you close it up and also set aside. The Cardinals was stamped 4 times on White card stock with Black Onyx and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Metallic s Cream Chalks. The sentiment was stamped 2 times on White card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Red Tinsel embossing powder and die cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die. 

For the assembly, start by gluing the colored Cardinals to the 4 panels as shown. Next take a piece of fishing twine or other twine approximately 14" long and fold in half. Apply glue to the remaining 2 edges not attached for the 4 panel section and place the cut ends of the twine into the center. Use a good amount of glue in the center to ensure that the twine stays fastened. Repeat this process with the 10 panel section and set aside to allow your glue to dry fully. Once the glue has dried glue your 2 sentiments back to back and finish with a few bows and some bling!

Watch this tutorial for tips on using the Festive Holly collection https://youtu.be/PufXslTDQhs.

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 X 6 1/4". To make the card base start with a piece of cardstock 11 1/2 X 5 1/2" and another piece of cardstock measuring 2 3/4 X 4 1/4".  Start with the larger piece and score on the long side at 1/4", 3 3/4" and 7 1/4".  Turn and score at 5/8" down to the last score line and cut away. Next glue the 2 3/4 X 4 1/4" to the 1/4" score line and then cut away the bit of scored cardstock above the glued on cardstock. This makes the base of your card. There are many of these listed on Pinterest so if you are a visual learner like me that might be the way to go.  

Next I covered the panels with different pieces of cardstock and some of the Festive Holly paper collection creating layers. The papers are so beautiful and just really put me into the Christmas spirit!  On the back panel I used Score-Tape to adhere a piece of lace to the bottom of the panel and then glued one of the pretty card fronts on top of that. I hot glued the Bling on a String and then stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Next die cut the Decorative Arch from white cardstock and glue it to the top of the panel. 

Moving to the next panel I used the cotton ball and Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and laid down a layer of color in the center of the panel. Use a light hand as it is easier to add more, but once it is down you can’t take it back; so slow and easy here.  

Stamp the lamp and the holly using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and die cut the images. I used the Dove Blender Pen and the different inks to color these two pieces. Stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the panel using Tuxedo Black Ink. I used dimensional tape to pop up the image so it has a bit of dimension. I also added some glitter here and there just for a bit of interest, after all it is the season!  The rest of the panels are just covered with pieces of the pretty paper collection with a bit of glitter added. On the front panel I used the Crystal Clear. The card is now finished.  Folded flat it can mail and extended out, it makes a beautiful decorator piece.  I hope you try this card for one of your Christmas cards this year.

The cards are beautiful and festive. I like the incorporation of flower embellishments. I especially like the dimension in layers.
