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

Since I still had the "Merriest Frames" dies sitting out (like I ever put anything back right away!!LOL) I thought I'd try and make wintry looking Christmas card and here's what I came up with.

The base of the card is folded half-sheet of Real Red card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Painted Christmas" 12" x 12" package.  I taped that to the front of the card.

Then I die cut the Basic White framed piece using the "Merriest Frames" die and then I textured it with the matching embossing folder. I taped that to the front of the card on top of the DSP. I only used tape in the rectangle area and not the foliage.

The words are from the "Framed & Festive" set and were stamped using Real Red ink on a piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut it with the die that was in the "Merriest Frames" set. I taped that in place.

Then I die cut a poinsettia from the dies in the "Merriest Frames" set. I glued them all together and I set the flower in place using a Dimensional. I added a  red embellishment to the center. I'm not sure where it's from but it's probably retired. You can always use the dark Real Red Blends Pen and color a small pearl. I was going to do that until I found this red embellishment and I figured I'd just use it because I need to use up some of the stuff sitting around here.  

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock was added to the inside of the card and the card was done.

I am happy with the way it turned out, it was exactly what I had in mind when I started making it.

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