Beauty & Joy with Heirloom Frames

I fell in love with the Beauty & Joy stamp set as soon as I saw it ... so of course it was on my first order. This last week I got to play with it :o)

One of the reasons I love it is that its one of those sets that you can use not only for Christmas or for any other occasion. I did decide to make a Christmas card first though :o)

I wanted to frame my topiary, so chose to use one of the Heirloom Frame dies and embossing folders. I created this in Gold Foil, so pulled out my Wrapped In Plaid 6" specialty papers to go with it - they have gold running through them.

I stamped the Pot first in Cherry Cobbler onto Whisper White card and then stamped the stems in Early Espresso. The Holly was next in Shaded Spruce. I stamped the Holly again onto scrap Whisper White card and heat embossed the Berries onto it using the Delicata Golden Glitz ink and Gold Embossing Powder. The three layers were then cut out by hand.

I cut out the stamped panel using one of the Oval Stitched Shapes dies - you could omit this completely if you wanted to. I like that you can just see the stitching around the inside edge of the Gold frame. I also ran this through my die cutting machine with the Subtle Folder to add a little texture.

The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and I cut it out using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies, adjusting the length of it when I put it through my die cutting machine.
