It's time for the new release for August, the Festive Christmas Collection!
The 2014 Festive Christmas Collection has JUST RELEASED. Warm shining candles, cozy bethlehem scenes, script ornaments and doves as elegant and peaceful as a snowy Christmas evening capture the elegance, festivity and real meaning that Christmas is about. But the best thing of it all is that there’s something for everyone in this collection. There are limited quantities available!!

Christmas is a couple of months away, but now is the time to start preparing for the festive seasons! Sometimes the best thing to do for someone to show them how much you care is simply create something beautiful for them.
The designer papers for the collection are the traditional red and green, but I decided on something a little different for this week...pink and green!
I used Natural White paper and heat embossed the images with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. I then colored the images with inks and make up applicators. This is the same look I've done a few times lately with blues and greens. I love how it comes out and it's a lot faster to color than pencils. Here's another angle of the card to help you see it a little better. You can also click on the photo for a closer look.
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week using the new collection! Emma Lou also has a new video for you showing you a couple of fun techniques.
In case you missed my last post, HC is also doing a Design Team Call for new designers and voting for the current designers that you would like to continue till August 29th. (Read more about it here.) As I had said in my post, I'm not included in the voting this time as I'm now considered a Contributing Designer. For the past few months I have been working for HC behind the scenes, in addition to designing, and will continue to design for them and be excluded from the voting. I'm so thrilled and relieved!!! The voting can be a little bit stressful for sure!
I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
