Silent Night

Hello Friends!
Today is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday once again and today I have another Christmas card. This is one holiday I always need to get a jump start on making cards. I remember one year I didn't get enough Christmas cards made and ended up purchasing a box of cards from a store. "OH that didn't go over very well." Ended up getting a few phone calls asking why they didn't get a handmade Christmas card. Think I have everyone spoiled, isn't that what it sounds like to you... LOL
Let's get on with todays card.

Base card 6" square. Cut paper 5 3/4" square and another one 5 1/2" square, both from the Christmas Card Paper Collection and adhere these two pieces together. Die Cut tan CS with the largest die from the Marvelous Squares collection, add some pop dots and adhere to the 5 1/2" square. Die cut with the second largest die, a Christmas scene from the Christmas Card Paper Collection and then die cut a piece of chip board and adhere these to pieces together. Cut two pieces of ribbon about 7" long and weave through die cut scene (hind ribbon tails later) and add some pop dots and adhere this piece to largest Marvelous frame. Now wrap ribbon behind the all layers and tape. Adhere all four layers to base card. Use the corner die cut from the Marvelous Squares and place in corners. Add pearls to all four sides and to the Marvelous Square corners. Add a bow at the top with a rhinestone brad wrapped around bow and glue. Adhere a rhinestone star and some Stickles to the star burst. Stamp four times with smallest poinsettia on tan CS, twice on moss green and once on blue and cut with coordinating die. With medium stamp, stamp on blue once and once on moss green and cut with coordinating die.  Distress every pedal with Crumb Cake ink. Use Blossom Tools to shape flowers. With metal tip on glue follow the veins in flowers and sprinkle with glitter. When dry, assemble flowers, add a rhinestones in center of flower and adhere to card.
