I can almost smell the pine needles! Even though I love non-traditional colors used for holiday cards, it is easy to be in love with the more traditional colors.
After I stamped the top panel, I die cut the word Noel from that panel and then cut 5 (yes, 5) more layers of the word Noel from the Real Red card stock. I glued all of them together. This is how I achieved the raised area. I somewhat offset the last red layer, just to give it a bit more pop. And yes, the red speckles are from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. That set never leaves my stamping table, do you have it??
I colored rhinestones with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities to add just the right amount of sparkle. Don't forget, the Blendabilities will dry on non-porous surfaces.
One other card made with this stamp set with a bit of Gorgeous Grunge mixed in. This one is a bit quicker to make, but still quite lovely.
