Going Country with Heartfelt Creations

Hello again!  Today's Heartfelt Inspiration has a bit of a country flair to it; I have used the gorgeous holly images for both cards that I have to share.  One is CAS and the other is not so CAS.

The gorgeous holly images are perfect for framing your Christmas sentiments.  In the first card, the berries and candle image are colored with Prismacolor pencils.  In the second, CAS card, the berries are colored withViva Decor 3D Stamp Paint.
For complete instructions and products used, see the end of this post.  Don't forget to check out all of the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the Design Team on the Heartfelt Creations blog.  

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed week!

Sew card stock to center of card base; be sure to leave enough room at bottom of card for sentiment. I have about 1 3/8 “ at the bottom of my card. Stamp sentiment in Early Espresso ink to bottom of card. Score lines on the sides of the sentiment. Using the Borders Scoring Tool, score the decorative edge to the top of the card.
Stamp 3 medium holly sprigs in black ink, color the berries with Prismacolor Pencils and die cut out with matching die. Die cut SB flourish from glitter paper. Die cut Decorative Oval Window die from brown Daphne Paper Collection.
Stamp the image in black ink and color with Prismacolor Pencils. Diecut image with circle die. Sponge edges of circle with Van Dyke brown ink.
 To assemble, cut window die around the flourishes in the center, bringing to two pieces together to create a circle frame for the image. Nestle the candle image in the circle frame and adhere to the embossed Crumb Cake panel. Adhere one sprig of holly to the right lower corner of the circle frame. Adhere the remaining 2 sprigs of holly and the glitter flourish to the left side of the circle frame.
