Peace On Earth...

Hello and Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!
I'm so glad you've taken some time out of your busy schedule to visit with me here today!

I have another Christmas card creation to share with you!
I've done a mix of a few different collections on this one....and I didn't have a lot of spare time so this is one you can complete super quickly!

Let's take a peek at what I made to spark some creativity for you this week...

I chose to use one of the premade card panels from the Winter's Eve Collection.
I cut two intricate decorative die cuts from the Festive Holly Collection and adhered them to the card front opposite of one another.
I love the lacy look that they have...and I think make such beautiful embellishments that lend a touch of an old fashioned feel to your holiday projects!

I've then stamped, colored and die cut some Sparkling Poinsettias, as well as some of the holly and berry clusters from the Festive Holly Collection.  After everything was shaped, I started playing around with the floral cluster. I thought they were so pretty there surrounding the bottom of the Christmas tree. I knew that I really wanted this holiday card to sparkle and I've used lots of glitter on the poinsettias as well as on the images on the preprinted card panel.

Here's a closer peek at all the sparkle on the poinsettias...

As I mentioned earlier on, this card didn't take me too much time and would be easy to replicate in a pinch.  You'll find all of the instructions below following the conclusion of this blog post!

I do hope you've been inspired here today!
