Glistening winter scenes filled with freshly fallen snow, pine boughs draped with shiny holiday ornaments, and prancing reindeer delivering sleighs filled with handpicked gifts for friends and loved ones are delightful imaginings that send our imaginations dancing with delight in the anticipation of the holiday season! Spread a little Christmas joy and happiness featuring these warmhearted inspirations with the new Merry and Bright Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Share cheerful Yuletide greetings and well wishes with a fun and cutesy paper collection overflowing with precious outdoor scenes of cozy snow laden cottages, beautiful birds nestled in delightfully decorated pines, and pleasing decorative holiday arrangements! Brimming with delicate snowflake accents, gorgeous floral clusters, charming polka dots and beautiful brocade patterns all encompassed in a non-traditional color palette of frosty blues, tantalizing teals, magnificent purples and pretty pinks, this paper collection is one that will surely have your holiday projects standing out from all the others received this holiday season! A sweet and desirable assembling of cling stamp sets paired with the coordinating dies culminate a perfect assortment of illustrations including beautiful evergreen groves, rustic snow covered foliage accents, diminutive Christmas baubles and an elegant vase ideal for assembling your own decorative centerpieces! The perfect accents for creating delightful holiday themed dimensional embellishments for all of your Yuletide projects

 Here is a fun card made with the new Merry and Bright collection from Heartfelt Creations.  The sleigh and deer is one stamp; for this card I stamped just the deer 2 more times.  The die set includes just the sleigh to create a dimensional image.  

You will find a pretty snowy village and beautiful ornaments to help you create your own one of a kind holiday cards.
