Merry Christmas with Heartfelt Creations

Good morning and welcome to another great Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations.  Today I'm sharing with you another Christmas card using some beautiful images from Heartfelt Creations.  I don't know about you but I love this "Lace Border" die, it just adds so much elegance and detail to my projects.
I used the ornament images from the "Poinsettia Ornament 2" set, after I stamped them I covered with diamond glaze, the large ornament I cracked several times once it dried to make it look more vintage.  For the poinsettias I used the small die from "Layered Poinsettia" and shaped with embossing tools.
Here is a closeup of the background, I stamped the "Snowy Winter Background" with watermark ink and heat embossed with holographic embossing powder, it added the perfect touch of sparkle to the dark purple patterned paper.
If you have some time to spare hop over to the HFC Blog and take a look at all the gorgeous creations by the rest of the design team.  Thanks for stoping by.
