Here's another card I created using the Fitting Florets Collection, which will be available for purchase beginning 1 November 2022.  This is a fabulous new Collection from Stampin' Up! that includes two stamp sets, plus coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper that works for Fall and Christmas Holidays and takes you right into the new year with hearts and beautiful floral prints.  I used one of the Stampin' Up! samples as a starting point to create today's card.  The basecard and image layer are Soft Succulent Cardstock, with Silver Foil Sheet accents.  I used one of the stamps from the Framed & Festive Stamp Set -- one of the two stamps sets included in this collection -- and stamped the Falala in Evening Evergreen ink multiple times on my image layer.  Then I die cut a frame out of Silver Foil and decorated it with more Silver and Vellum stems and flowers from the Framed Florets Stamp Set.  I also cut a center for my Silver frame out of Vellum cardstock and added sentiments from the Framed & Festive Stamp Set.  You'll love having this fresh, new multi-occasion Collection to work with as you create cards, tags and gifts wrapping during the next several months.

Christmas Card idea using Fitting Florets collection from Stampin' Up!

This card uses a basecard of Soft Succulent Cardstock.  Then a layer of Silver Foil showing at the top and bottom of the Soft Succulent Cardstock Image layer.  I used Evening Evergreen ink and one of the stamps from the Framed &* Festive Stamp Set and stamped Falala multiple times.

Next, I created a die cut of Silver Foil with the mirrored foil finish with a Vellum cut out as my focal point.  I die cut Silver Foil and Vellum Cardstock stems, and stamped and colored flower blossoms to decorate the edges of my Silver Foil Frame.  I used Sweet Sorbet Blends Marker to color one of the blossoms and Blushing Blossoms Ink and Water Painters to color the two smaller blossoms.  The blossoms are the from the Framed Florets Stamp Set.

To complete the sentiments for the card, I used two of the small sentiments from the Framed & Festive Stamp Set, stamped them in Evening Evergreen Ink, and trimmed them by hand as I wanted very small strips of sentiments.  Finally, I selected 3 small silver pearls from the Festive Pearls pack to accent the card.
