Little Delights, Merriest Frames Dies and Embossing Folder, Forever Fern, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

I was having a little bit of regret not getting the stamp set that went with the "Merriest Frames" dies and embossing folder. But a bright idea came to mind and the regret went away!  (That was a close call!!  LOL).  I went for white, light and elegant!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock.  I cut my card stock on the short side of the sheet so it measured 4-1/4" x 11".  I folded it in half.  Next I textured the front using the  "Merriest Frames" embossing folder. My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. A little different than I usually do but it's okay, I like it.

I cut a 2-1/8" x 2-7/8" Piece of Real Red card stock for the inside of the embossed frame. There's also a fun stitched rectangle die in the "Merriest Frames" die set. I die cut it out of Basic White card stock.  I stamped the words from the "Little Delights" set using Real Red ink. I centered them as much as I could. Then I taped the stamped piece to the stitched rectangle piece and those were then taped to the center of the embossed card.

There are two larger flowers and two small flowers in the die set so I cut them using Basic White card stock. I colored them with Wink of Stella and set them aside. 

I wasn't sure what I was going to do about the leaves. I didn't have the stamp set and just die cutting the leaf image wasn't going to work. So I got out the "Forever Ferns" set and die cut two sets of leaves. I also colored them with the Wink of Stella pen.

I set the leaves on the card for placement. I ended up trimming off some of the leaves and moving them to the upper corner and keeping the larger parts at the bottom. I added a little tape to the corners of the rectangle piece and set the leaves in place.  

The largest flower was placed at the bottom left and the smaller one on the upper right.  I used a Dimensional to set them in place. The Dimensional will also help keep the leave in place more too.  The tiny flower parts were added to the center of each of the larger flowers with a dot of glue. 

For the final touch, I added a tiny pearl to the center of each flower and the card was done.

I think it has a very elegant look and I was thrilled that I was able to make a fun card without the use of the stamp set that went along with it!!!  YAY!!!  

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop by and see today's Christmas card,
