Here's a Christmas card that uses stamp sets from the Christmas Cheer Collection and the Cardinal Family/Holly Berry Collection from Heartfelt Creations. One of the things I love the most is how well their stamps all mix and match no matter what collection they "belong" to - they are very versatile!
Note: Finished card size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Cut a piece of red card stock measuring 5 1/2" x 11", score at 5 1/2", and fold.
Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Use the pine branch stamp and green ink to stamp the branches across the top of the mat. For the branches on the sides of the mat, use the "stamp off" technique to get a lighter image - stamp the branch on scrap paper first, then on the mat layer.Mount a strip of ribbon across the lower edge of the mat. Mount the mat on the front of the card.
Stamp the ornament. Stamp the pine branch in green ink on ivory card stock twice. Cut these images out. Arrange together, and mount on the front of the card using foam squares. Tie a bow, and mount it above the ornament.
