I've created two different looks using the O Little Town of Bethlehem background stamp and the new Fancy Foliage Dies. To make the first card I started by stamping the background twice on white card stock. then I sponged a few different yellows around the town scene and blues around the sky. Then I cut the buildings and star, and popped those elements. The windows are covered in tinted glassy glaze and the entire scene is glittered for a light snowy effect.

"Chirstmas is... tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace." by Agnes M Pharo
I went in a different directly on this next one - using the same background and similar elements but still very different. First I stamped and embossed the background in gold, then sponged the edges in warm tones and gold leafed the border. I also dotted some gold liquid pearls for added texture.

Next I die cut the Poinsettia and Fancy Foliage flourishes & leaves, sponged these elements, colored the Poinsettia using Copics, added gold mini beads to the flower center and assembled. The Rejoice tag was added last.
