Heartfelt- Winter's Eve - Merry Christmas!

Good morning!
Winter's Eve New Release
Don't you just love these wonderful colors!  Such beautiful papers in this collection and they also coordinate with the Festive Holly Collection, yippee!

So this card is basically a gate fold card made fancy with Heartfelt's beautiful Decorative Medallion die from the Wedding Collection...I love how you can mix and match several Heartfelt collections together!  This card was inspired by Emma Lou's video where she shows how to make these wonderful gate "doors".  I did mine a bit wrong (all one piece) but it turned out well anyway!

I used the other die in the Decorative Medallion die set to cover the open oval on the inside.  I love the look of the dark red with the crisp white.

Heartfelt Creations- Merry Christmas


Instructions: Other products: Spellbinder label die, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Star Dust Stickles, 3-M Foam Tape, Copic Markers: R21,R24,R29,R59,E00,E01,E93,BV20,YG03,YG23,YG17,RV000,RV02,RV10,E42,E43,E44,E53,E33,E35,Y00,Y11,Y15,YR23,YR24,Y21,E50,W03,W03,C02,C03 and Inka Gold.

Use the solid backing part of the die on two pieces of pink designer paper as lining for the Decorative flaps created.  Cut another piece of pink designer paper for the inside 5 1/2 X 5 1/2 section.  Cut the paper a bit smaller to accommodate the scores and to leave a small white border top and bottom.  Cut a piece of white linen 5 X 5 and emboss it with an embossing folder, now layer these to the inside and cut an oval from dark red card stock and cut two Decorative Medallions (the semi-circle looking one)to layer on top of the red oval. Glue these to the center of the inside.  Stamp Winter's Eve fireplace, Christmas Tree/Angel girl, Festive Holly & Cardinals pieces (except lantern), Sparkling Poinsettia (the smallest flowers (X 4), and Merry Christmas from Celebrate the Season.  Color with Copics (all pieces) and die cut or fussy cut all.  Glue fireplace/floor and Christmas Tree/Girl to the inside, add Merry Christmas to the top.  Slightly form Holly and Cardinals, form flowers and use Inka Gold on petals, leaves and berries.  Use a cloth to shine gold.   Add gold Prills to centers of flowers and Stickles to berries.  Foam tape/glue leave, berries and flowers to the outside flaps.

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Luke 2:10-14
10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”[c]

Robin - gorgeous. So many details and elements - these type of cards are little gifts in themselves and must take ages to make - another great job. Love the glow of the fire and the way the burgundy sets off the white.
