It is an exciting day.  I am sharing a preview of the new Christmas release. My favorite time of the year.  There is so many fun dies in this release.  My first holiday card features the Florentina Wreath die.

Florentina Wreath:

Die cut the Florentina Wreath die from heavy cream card stock and from a mid-tone green from Lush Green paper pack.  On the green die cut ink the center with Distress Oxide Ink Rustic Wilderness and then Vintage Photo along the outside and inside of the wreath.  For the cream wreath add dots of Sunlit Gold Fairy Sugar glue to the round berries.  Let dry.

Smooth Pine Cones:

Die cut the smallest Smooth Pine Cones 3 times from a dark brown from Earth Earth paper pack. Glue the pieces together starting from the smallest die and stacking the next die on top. Create 2 pine cones that are longer and 1 shorter pine cone. Shape the pine cones using your fingers.  Apply Distress Grit paste with a pallet knife.  Let dry.

Curled Holly Branch:

Die cut the Curled Holly Branch 3 times from the same mid-tone green from Lush Green paper pack.  Trim 2 of the die cut  branches to remove the last leave and 2 berries.  Save the 3rd die cut to add in leaves and berries as needed.
