Framed & Festive, Merriest Frames, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Today's card was found on Pinterest (you can see the original here) and I thought I would make one since the "Merriest Frames" die set will be retiring. I have not played with it much and am sad about it because it's SO beautiful. The die cut has a folder that the piece fits in and textures it.  How cool is that?  Here's how I made the card:

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Cherry Cobbler card stock. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White and taped it to the inside.

Then I die cut the gold foil framed piece from the "Merriest Frames" die set. After I die cut it I set it up in the matching embossing folder textured it. Then I glued it to the front of the card base. 

I took a scrap piece of Cherry Cobbler and I stamped the words from the "Framed & Festive" set using Versa Mark. Then I sprinkled gold embossing powder over them and heat set it. I die cut it with the matching rectangle die in the set. I glued it to the center of the gold embossed frame. 

There's also poinsettia leaves and centers in that set. I die cut both large and small poinsettias in Cherry Cobbler and I cut two centers using the gold foil card stock. I glued the centers to the poinsettia flowers. Then I added a crystal rhinestone to the center of each. I colored the rhinestones using my dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen. I added Dimensionals to the back of the flowers and I set them in place on the front of the card. And the card was done.

This is a very quick and simple card and yet VERY elegant.

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

Very elegant! I bought that Merriest Frame when it was marked down but too late for this year's cards. I can't wait to use it!
