 This collection is truly festive indeed with it's traditional reds and greens!
Those beautiful cardinals mixed with the holly and berries are exquisite!
I just couldn't resist using several of the stunning premade card panels of these beautiful creatures!

Here's how my first project reveal with this collection turned out...

I've used a 6"x6" card panel to create the mat on the base of the card.  I opted to mat the main focal card panel with kraft card stock as this collection just has such a country flair!  I've inked all of the edges of all of the papers with a gold ink to add to the holiday feel of the card.  I've added the main cardinal premade panel onto the card with pop dots.  I've used the Decorative Medallion die cut from the Classic Wedding Collection to use as an accent down the side of the card.  I've cut several holly and berry cluster die cuts and added them to frame the side of the card as well.  I've used small florals from the Birds and Blooms Collection to tie in the gold theme on the card.  They've been heat embossed with gold embossing powder and have had gold prills added to the center.  A Christmas card calls for lots of sparkle and shine so I've used Glitter Ritz on top of dries white glue!  The dries white glue gives the card the look of raised snow.  It's so pretty!'s a bit of a closer look at some of the details...

A super simple flag completes the look!
I've heat embossed it with gold embossing powder and have then inked all of the edges with a gold ink! The finishing touch was the three gold half pearls!
I've completed the inside of the card with a coordinating 6"x6" card panel...not necessary by any means, but it's always a nice finishing touch!

I hope you've enjoyed my share today!
