So here is my first project featuring the new Delightful Decorations stamp set, coordinating Delightful Decorations Die and new Christmas Collection 2015 paper pad. 

 I started with an ecru card stock base measuring 5.5 x 4.25 inches and added a rich burgundy mat.  I trimmed the DP down slightly smaller and adhered it to the mat panel.  I stamped my ornament and greeting on ecru card stock before using the coordinating die to cut it out.  I added a Christmas spray to the corner using a few older favorites to create the branches, holly and poinsettia.  

Here are the new items you see...


 
 

 


But, wait!  I have another one to share using the Christmas Carols stamp set and more lovely paper from the Christmas Collection 2015... 
 

 
I started with a burgundy card stock base and added a layer of gold poster board.  I LOVE this snowflake print DP, don't you?  I added a gold doily mat with the burgundy doily die on top.  I stamped the sentiment on white card stock and lightly sponged it before removing from the die.  A white poinsettia and leaves adorn the corner...
 
So here is the new stamp set you see...
 
 
and some of the older items I used on these projects today...

I am out of my comfort zone with the color burgundy but both of your cards changed my mind. They look so elegant. I love that the ornament from the Delightful Decorations set and the Christmas Carol sentiment stands out on each card. The papers and the poinsettias are beautiful as is the snowflake DP. Very nice job on both cards.
