I created a version of this card for World Card Making Day earlier in October, and recently created another version using the new Framed & Festive Stamp Set, which debuts for customers on 1 November as part of the Fitting Florets Collection.  New Demonstrators can add it as a selection in their Starter Kit, if ordered by 31 October. Its available to Demonstrators as a preorder this month--a benefit of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, along with Demonstrator discounts. This fabulous new Collection from Stampin' Up! includes two stamp sets, and coordinating Dies, Fitting Florets 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper plus adorable Gold Adhesive-Backed Swirls.  The Collection works for Fall and Christmas Holidays and takes you right into the new year with hearts and beautiful floral prints.  The basecard is Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Then I used three shades of green -- Pear Pizzazz, Evening Evergreen, and Old Olive -- to create the pine cones, and wreath.  I stamped a sentiment from the Framed & Festive  Stamp Set in Old Olive onto the Basic White Circle, and added a Crumb Cake bow and a Brushed Metallic Dot to the sentiment layer.  Then I used additional sentiments from this stamp set for my message inside the card.  This is a must-have set for Christmas Card sentiments.

This card uses a basecard of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Then I created a sentiment circle out of Basic White using the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies.

Next, I used the Natural Print dies and created a wreath out of Old Olive Cardstock.  I used the Christmas Pinecone Dies to die cut pine branches and pine cones out of Evening Evergreen and Pear Pizzaz Cardstock.  I used Old Olive ink to stamp one of the Framed & Festive sentiments onto the Whisper White layer, and added a Crumb Cake bow and a Brushed Metallic Dot to complete the card..
