Deck the hall by Debbie features Ornamental Wishes, Ornamental Shaker, Pines & Holly, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs: #newtonsnook
Debbie Owens creates this golden card by die cutting the  background with it's gold foiled design using the Frames & Flags die set. She then adds a wide red ribbon to create a central stripe. She layers elements from the Pines & Holly die set using foiled card stock. For her focal point, she stamps and embosses the sentiment using Ornamental Wishes stamp set and frames it using the Ornamental Shaker die set. Red sequins finish this golden delight!

May your days be merry and bright by Diane features Festive Forest and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Diane Morales uses Kraft card stock as her base with looks fabulously with the silver and gold elements. She uses the Frames & Flags  die set to cut her center background. Then shes uses a trio of trees from the Festive Forest stamp set and embosses in silver and gold.  Wonderfully done!

Peace and joy by Emily features Poinsettia Blooms, Sentiments of the Season, Plaid, and Frames & Flags by Newton's Nook Designs: #newtonsnook
Emily Lauritzen chooses soft blues to complement the silver in her card. She uses the Plaid stencil set with silver and blue inks to create a pretty design and then rotates it to overlay the white base. She uses the Frames & Flags die set to give it the scalloped edges. She softly colors the flowers from the Poinsettia Blooms and adds it to her base.  She pulls words from one of the sentiments from Sentiments of the Season stamp set. So soft and elegant!

Merry Christmas by Sue features Evergreens, Holiday Greetings, and Petite Snow by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Sue T. brings on the glitter with this gorgeous card. She uses the Petite Snow stencil to create a snowy sky.  Then she uses the Evergreens stencil  and silver and gold texture paste for those shimmery trees. For the Merry Christmas sentiment, Sue uses a die from the Holiday Greetings die set with a glittery black paper!  A spectacular card!

Wishing you joy by Becky features Poinsettia Blooms, Tags Time Two, and Plaid by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
Becky Noelle wows with this gorgeous card. Her amazing background uses the Plaid stencil set with some Distress Oxide inks, transfer gel, and foil.  She adds her wonderfully colored flowers from the Poinsettia Blooms stamp set and places her sentiment on a little tag from the Tag Times Two die set.  She adds some golden thread behind her tag for an added touch of elegance. Again, striking!
