Instructions:
Card size: 6 1/2 X 6 1/2   Cut 1 piece of white 6 1/2 X 6 1/2” and another piece 6 1/2 X 7”, score the 7” side at 1/2" (this will be a tab for gluing the 2 pieces together to make the card base).  Cut a piece of decorative paper 6 X 6” and then cut a 3 1/4” circle in the center.  Cut a piece of Foam Sheet the same size with the circle in the center as well.  (It is always best to let the foam rest after running through the die cutting machine, I usually let rest over-night so that it can go back to its original size and shape, if you glue it before it has time to reform you will warp the panel because it will try to go back to shape but it has been glued, I hope you know what I mean).
When the foam has reformed glue it to the back of the decorative paper and glue it to the card base.  Cut a piece of decorative paper to match the village die then cut a circle for the sky and put them together to form a circle.  Lay it inside the raised panel. Use glue with fine tip to add glitter to trees and roof tops.  Make a circle frame for the opening and also cut 2 Festive Holiday Decorative dies from white to use top and bottom of circle opening and glue.  Stamp Festive Holly & Cardinals and sleigh with reindeer and sleigh extra piece with black Memento ink on white card stock and die cut.  Stamp trees, pine boughs and holly leaves with Fern Green, Stamp pine cones with Rich Cocoa Memento and poinsettias with Magenta Hue.  Sponge holly and pine boughs with Leaf Green, poinsettias with Brilliance Orchid and die cut all.  Color Pine cones, bird and holly, sleigh and reindeer with Copics.   Place poinsettias and holly in the shaping mold (up to 3 deep) mist with water between each set and run through the die cutting machine.  Let dry thoroughly and then make flowers by gluing 2 blossoms together pushing down in the center.  Add one set of holly underneath and then add gold Prills to the center.
Use the snow pen on the pine boughs, pine cones and trees, glitter then heat to puff. Glue the pieces onto the card front starting with the 2 taller trees on the left (add a bit of snow paste at the base of the trees), smaller trees part way up into the circle scene and then the sleigh and reindeer next on top of the tall trees.   Glue the pine boughs on then the holly & Cardinal.  Tuck the pine cones in and then glue poinsettias on.

Instructions:
Card size-6 X 7 1/2" Cut 2 pieces of white  card stock 6 X 6.  Cut 1 of the pieces in half (actually one side bigger than the other)then  with the plain edge of the Fleur Border Basics cut each top of the 2 halves, these will be the left and right “wings” of the card base.  Score each “half” on the taller side at 1/2” and make a line with a pencil on the short side of each at 1/4".  On the 1/4” make a tab for each piece.  For the back 6 X 6 and the 2 sides, cover with decorative paper (leave the 1/2" scored side free of decorative paper, it is a tab for attaching to back).  Make a slit on the back panel (to line up with the small tab on the right side wing so that it can slip into slit) 2” from left side.  Make a slit on the right side wing 1 3/4" from the right side score line (the left side wing tab should be able to fit into slit on the right wing).  This forms the base of the card, (You may need to recut some slits if some of the decorations cover them).  (See tutorial HERE)
Cut 2 Border Essentials fence out of white, Cut 2 scalloped edge borders from the Fleur Border Basics out of white, Cut the Eyelet circle out of white and cut the inner circle from decorative paper.  Glue curved borders to tops of “wings”.   Glue circle and inner circle to left top of card back.  Hand cut fences to match back panel for the 2 “wings” (inside panels) and glue to the bottom but leave tops open for inserting any trees you may want to decorate with.  Sponge glue on all sky areas and glitter, inside and outside “wings” and back panel.
Starting with the inside first, stamp 2 sets of evergreen trees, from the Snowy Pine Village set, using VersaMark and white embossing powder then while hot, dip it into some fine glitter so that it sticks to the powder (you may need to re-heat some areas).  Stamp and emboss the medium and small trees (2 each), from the Snow Kissed Spruce set, in the same fashion as the other trees then die cut all.  Stamp, die cut and color deer family (Rich Cocoa), the bunnies (London Fog) and the cardinals (Magenta Hue) from the Woodsy Critters set.  Glue trees and critters to the inside (trees inside fence and critters outside fence).   Finish the back by Stickling the roof tops and then while that dries, stamp, sponge color and die cut greenery (using Fern green and Leaf Green), ornament sticks, pine cones (Using Rich Cocoa) and poinsettias (Using Magenta Hue and Brilliance Orchid).  Run flowers through the die cutting machine with the shaping mold and then put flowers together using 2 layers of flower petals and a base of holly.  Fill centers with Gold Prills and then glitter petals.  Color ornaments with Copics.  Add snow to sticks with the snow pen and heat to puff.  Add snow to ground with Snowtex.  Make arrangement for the top of card using the ornament sticks, pinecones, greenery flowers and a cardinal.  Stamp sentiment from Merry Little Christmas stamp set using Magenta Hue at the top of circle before adding the arrangement of flowers.
For the outside of “wings”, stamp and emboss and glitter large Spruce, and 2 sets of pine the same way as before, stamp another deer family using Rich Cocoa and more greenery using Fern Green (colored with Leaf green), ornament sticks using Rich Cocoa, and poinsettias using Magenta Hue.  (You should have bunnies and a cardinal left from the stamping previously done.  Glue 2 fence pieces to the bottoms (previously cut) leaving tops open.  Glue and/or pop up trees inside and outside of fence pieces (On the right wing, be careful to avoid slit). Glue and pop up deer and bunnies, add snow to the bottom then put together small flower arrangement for left side of left wing.  Add the other cardinal to the top of arrangement with a double layer of foam tape.
That completes the project.  Slide tabs into slits to bend card.

Card size: 4 1/4  X 5 1/2   Cut card panel 11 X 4 1/4, score at 5 1/2 then fold to make the card base.  Cut top edge of the front with the Classic Border Basic plain edge die so that the front measures approximately 2 1/2 inches and then cut the top edge of the back so that it measures approximately 3 3/4 inches. Cut on score in the middle from top edge of back down to cut edge in front (about 1”).  Cut a front and inside panel from decorative paper and cut them to match the curves of front and inside (see Emma Lou’s video for an easy way to do that here:  https://youtu.be/wxX94X84kUo.)  Now cut 2 white Delicate borders and glue one to each of the top edges to match curves.  Trace the die onto decorative paper (to match the sky) and hand cut a backing for the back edge behind the Delicate border.  Sponge glue onto the front of card and the inside of card and apply ultrafine glitter.
Stamp Bethlehem 2 times in black and die cut, 1 time reversed in black (stamp onto plain rubber [plain rubber found here] then plain rubber to paper, hand cut)and then 1 time in London Fog and 1 time in Shadow Gray, die cut.  Glue and foam tape the layers of Bethlehem onto front staggering a bit right and left to get layers of town.  Punch grass from decorative paper for front and glue to the bottom.  Stamp angels, shepherds with black ink and die cut.  Stamp the left shepherd again and hand cut (carefully cut lamb away from hand).  Stamp the Holy Family twice and use the 2nd one to cut away cow and lamb to use.  Cut a circle from decorative paper and ink the inside part to make a “cave” or stable.  Color all pieces with Copic markers.  Stamp just the star part of Bethlehem with VersaFine and emboss with gold and glitter white hot, die cut.

Luke 2:8-15
That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in highest heaven,
    and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”

15 When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

Heartfelt Gold and Silver Ornament

Good morning!
I've turned the ornament die into a 3-D ornament making 4 each of the
 gold and silver.  Full instructions below.
I've also made a card with the ornament die, you'll find it below as well!
I had a blast using these stamps and dies, everything is just beautiful 
in the Oh Holy Night collection.


Heartfelt Creations products used:         

Other Products:
Gold metallic textured card stock, Silver metallic textured card stock, Gold half beads, Gold drilled bead, snowflake silver charm, Silver thread, gold trim shimmer ribbon.

Instructions:
Cut 4 ornament base die cuts from gold textured card stock and cut 4 inner decorative ornaments from silver textured card stock.  Score and fold each ornament part in the center.  Glue the half side of one to the half side of another and continue doing this until you meet on the last side with the first side…make sure you string some thread between halves to use as a hanger and also to string a bead on at the bottom.   Let each side dry thoroughly before gluing the next piece on using little clamps to keep ornament parts tight while it dries (especially when using the metallic paper as it has a sleek back). 
Once everything is dry, take all the clamps off and start gluing the silver ornament parts inside the gold.  Again, make sure each side is thoroughly dry before gluing the next one on.  Now decorate by placing adhesive backed gold half beads on the center of each snowflake design in the ornament.  Next place drops of silver Nuvo on each little scroll end.  Add a nice big gold bow at the top and at the bottom string your thread ends through a gold bead and then tie a silver snowflake charm under the bead, make it tight against the ornament.  Put a little glue on the knot for the charm and when the glue dries cut off the ends of the threads right to the charm.


Since I was in the gold mood my card is full of it too!

Instructions:
Card size: 5 3/4 X 6” Start with an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of cream shimmer card stock for the base (even though the card measures 6” across you can use this size card stock as the front is narrower) score at 6” and then glue a piece of decorative paper 5 X 5 1/2  to a panel of gold 5 X 5 5/8  to the front leaving 1/8 border around the top, folded edge and bottom,  then place the plain edge die from Classic Borders on the cut edge of the front to die cut and make a decorative front to the card.  Cut a piece of gold with the fancy Delicate Border and glue to the back of the front curved edge to match curves. Cut another piece of decorative paper 2 3/4 X 5 1/2 and die cut the left side with the plain Classic die (keep the piece you cut off for the back of the front to make the edge look nice while card is open).  Glue the decorative paper to a gold panel 5 3/4 X 5 5/8 and cut another gold decorative border from the Delicate Borders to cover the paper’s cut edge (plain curves against the gold) embellish “seam” with cream pearls.  Finish the inside with the large sentiment from the Noel Sentiments, stamping with VersaMark on cream shimmer and embossing with golf fine line powder. Round the edges with a punch and glue to gold panel.

Matthew 2:9-11 tells of the wise men and their gifts to the King of kings, Jesus.

When they heard the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. 11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Instructions:
Card size: closed-7 1/4 X 5 1/4” Open-7” X 5 1/4”  Cut white card stock  10 7/8” X 5 1/2”  and fold into thirds, cut the top with the scallop edge of the Ornate Borders, fold two outer panels into half and use a bone folder to get  good crease. Cut decorative paper for each panel and then cut the tops with the plan edge die of the Ornate Borders. Glue each matching panel to the white card.  Cut the bridge from tan card stock 2” X 7” then cut the top with the plain edge die of the Fleur Border Basics Die.  Cut 2 tan “dirt” panels from tan card stock for the back panel but leave the top open for now to insert bottom of the town of Bethlehem after stamping and die cutting 1 with London Fog ink and 1 with black ink.
Stamp, die cut and color the Holy family, the shepherds, the angels, and the palm tree.  Use a solid plain piece of rubber to create a reverse image of the shepherds then cut out only the end shepherd to put on the right side of the bridge with the palm tree. I cut the coconuts off the tree as it looked too tropical.  To reverse the image I used my Misti with a plain sheet of rubber.  I attached the plain rubber to the acrylic side like you would a stamp and had paper on the other side secured with magnets.  I stamped the shepherds onto the plain rubber then immediately stamped the plain rubber onto the paper making the reverse image.  I had to fussy cut as the die cannot be used on the reverse image.
Use gold glitter on the star and on the angel halos, Fine glitter on the wings and glass shards on the stars in the sky.  Glue the angels above the Holy family and the Holy family down on the center portion of the bridge.  Foam tape the shepherd group to the left side and the single shepherd on the right, also foam taped, along with the glued flat to card tree.   Card will fold flat going either direction for easy mailing.

Matthew 1:18-25
18 This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. 19 Joseph, to whom she was engaged, was a righteous man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement[h] quietly.
20 As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus,[i] for he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:
23 “Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
    She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,[j]
    which means ‘God is with us.’”

24 When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife. 25 But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.
