Flourishes Sneak Peak - A Gift for You

Today, I have a card to share that I created with  Flourishes' brand new set called, A Gift for You.   Flourishes is sneak peaking this new set today and some of the Spellbinders’ team is joining in on the fun!
This set was designed not only to coordinate with some of Flourishes best-selling Christmas stamp sets but with more than a handful of Spellbinders Template Dies! A Gift For You - drawn by the ever-so-talented Marcella Hawley - offers 8 different tag styles and 8 different mini sentiments to fit inside! To make sure your tags come out with a regal style and design, this set coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 14, Labels 15, Labels 16, as well as some of the new circular and square shaped designs like Lacey Circles and Squares, Eyelet Circles and Squares and Beaded Circles! The customizable options are endless.

Although this set is designed for tags, I chose to create a Christmas card. 

I first stamped the bow with greenery which includes a dotted border that works with Spellbinders S4-290 Labels Fourteen #4.  I used that die template to cut and emboss it after stamping.  I added the little bird and greenery at the bottom.  Isn't the detail amazing? 
I stamped the bird a second time to cut out and glue over top for a little dimension.  I used Copic markers to color all the images with some glitter on the ornaments added with Spica markers.
To add the gold edge, I ran a Versamark marker along the edge, then added gold EP and heat embossed it.  Merry Christmas was stamped and embossed, too, then cut with Spellbinders S4-112 Classic Ovals SM #2.  I added a gold border in the same way. 
I used S5-025 Labels Seventeen #4 for the red mat.  I added little gold metallic dots (Metallic Decor from Hero Arts) at each corner.  I distressed all the pieces with Antique Linen and a touch of Vintage Photo before assembly.
I added a green mat to a cream top fold card - 3 1/4" x 4 5/8".   The colored image is mounted with foam tape. I wrapped the ribbon around the inside of the card and gathered the ends on the front.  I wrapped 2 pieces of gold cord over the ribbon and adhered them in the center also.  The Merry Christmas oval is mounted with foam tape over the ribbon ends.  I added 2 more of the little metal dots at each end.
