International Ambassadors Informal Bloghop: Christmas in August

Hello everyone,
Welcome to the 8th International Ambassadors Informal blog hop hemed "Christmas in August".
Yep...only a couple of months before it'll be Christmas time flies!
And with the newest Spellbinders Christmas die-templates now being available in stores, we thought it would be a great subject for our monthly blog hop.
We International Ambassadors hope to inspire you with our projects, each of us in their own style.

I chose to make a Christmas card in traditional colors.
For the Holly farme I stacked Holly Frame and Matting Basics B #4 (with #1 being the smallest die-template). Cut/emboss from kraft cardstock and then use some metallic paint to give the frame an antique gold color.
Cut Matting Basics B #5 from patterned or stamped (music) paper and glue the die-cut behind the Holly frame using 3D foam squares.
Cut/emboss Tree With Bows from green cardstock and glue to the frame using 3D foam squares
Cut/emboss Bird Banner from white cardstock and alter the edges using brown in and a dauber.
Glue to the frame using 3D foam squares.
Mat the frame onto burgundy and then kraft cardstock and finally glue to a white cardbase.
embellish the banner with a Christmas text and glue red rhinestones to the tree.
