C hristmastime is Here Suite was used for this card that I cased from Alisa Tilsner. I just love this suite and the Christmas Rose stamp set.
Start with a whisper white A2 cardbase cut on the long edge at 4 1/4 so that your card is 5 1/2 l x 4 1/4 w and horizontal.
Stamp the Birch background on it in soft suede
Run it thru the die cutting machine with the Subtle folder.
cut a 11/2 x 41/4 strip of the green design in the Christmastime Is Here paper and adhere that to the card front.
Tie a piece of the gold shimmer ribbon around the front panel.
Stamp the outline image from the Christmas Rose stamp on whisper white paper using memento black ink
Stamp the various detailed images onto the image created in step 3.
Pinecones- soft suede
Leaves/boughs- mossy meadow, not too dark
Berries- poppy parade
Rose- cherry cobbler and a second time with real red
I went over the pine boughs with my shaded spruce marker to try and give it a little difference in coloring from the leaves.
Cut the rose image out using the dies from the bundle and place it on the card front with dimensionals.
using the sprig punch (or a berries die would be cute too) for some sprigs in mossy meadow, place them under the image. I did that in two places.
I used an old banner die and heat embossed Thank You from Free as a Bird in white on mossy meadow. I popped one end of that up so it was the same height as the rose.
