Happy Wednesday! Today is the second Wednesday of the month which means that Heartfelt Creations is debuting a collection today!

The Christmas Card paper pad has 76 card fronts that will enable you to create quick and easy Christmas cards that are embellished or simple- you pick! This paper pack is a fantastic solution for getting the most beautiful cards for the least amount of time. If you don’t need one side, flip it over and use the other side! The coloring is done for you. There are many panels for utmost variety and the best selection. The stamps and dies released with this collection are absolutely festive and ornamental. The gorgeous type and frames will help you create the most beautiful Christmas project your friends have ever seen!

My hubby and I had a mini photo session last year in our new home which we did ourselves (that timer works wonders!) and this is one of the pics we took.

Here are a few close ups of my layout:

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Start by die cutting a 6” circle out of light brown pattern paper. Stamp and emboss the sentiment on the top right side of the circle. Ink all the edges and adhere to background paper. Add another layer of pattern paper over the bottom area of the page and add a 6”x4” photo over it. Stamp one of the pine cones right above the top edges of where the photo would be (lift picture to know exactly where to stamp) and the second one in the bottom right corner of the layout. Die cut two ornamental dies in white and add to either side of the photo as shown. Stamp the round merry Christmas sentiment on white cardstock 3 times. Cut out with two different size nesting Shapeabilities dies and emboss. Stamp the scroll on white cardstock and fuzzy cut. Add stickles and set it aside to dry. For the flowers, stamp a bunch of different size poinsettias and layer them to form thick 3D flowers. Add a pearl to their center and stickles to the petals. Stamp a few leaves and die cut with its coordinating die. To form the cluster, arrange the poinsettias, leaves, and round embellies around the photo as shown. Finish by randomly adding liquid pearl drops around the cluster.
