Merriest Moments Stamped Background Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!
Today I introduced the 3rd kit from my Countdown To Christmas Holiday Card Series during my LIVE Class featuring the Merriest Moments Bundle ! I'm once again offering both a 5-card LIVE Class Kit and the full 12-Card Countdown To Christmas Kit. 
Please Note: I had intended to feature the Whimsy & Wonder Suite for the 3rd Countdown To Christmas kit, but I decided to move it to the 4th kit because there were some key components on backorder until mid-October. Look for the Whimsy kit to premiere on October 21.
For today's projects, I share one of the sets of four cards from the Countdown To Christmas kit.

Merriest Moments Stamped Background Cards
The Merriest Moments stamp set is a beautiful collection of festive poinsettia and foliage images, along with heartwarming sentiments. The full Merriest Moments Bundle is truly a must-have, and it's a unique bundle, too! It not only features the Merriest Dies to go along with the images, it also includes the awesome Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder. You can use the folder and dies TOGETHER to create gorgeous textured layers!  Find out how to use them together by watching the LIVE Class Replay linked above.
For the first set of cards from the Countdown To Christmas class kit #3, I focused mainly on the images. I'll be sharing the Hybrid Folder cards on future blog posts.

Background Basics—I started by stamping the Merriest Moments leaves image in Soft Sea Foam ink all over the 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White. It's matted onto a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" layer of Mint Macaron. I tied some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon around the layers, tied into a double-knot, and mounted the layers onto a Soft Sea Foam card base.

Sweet Sentiment—I die-cut a Basic White stitched rectangle with the help of the Merriest Dies and stamped a Real Red Merriest Moments sentiment on it. I popped it up onto the card front with Dimensionals.
Festive Accents—I stamped three of the small holly leaves in Soft Succelent ink, and stamped the berries in Real Red ink, onto Basic White scrap cardstock. I used the Merriest Dies to cut out all the shapes, then adhered them to the label with SEAL Adhesive for the leaves and Glue Dots for the berries. I finished by adding three Real Red Rhinestones under the sentiment layer.
This card will be part of the 5-Card LIVE Class Kit.

Two Cool—My second card in this series begins the same way, except I created it in a horizontal orientation.  This time, I used a different Merriest Moments sentiment, some larger holly leaves and floated the rhinestones around the sentiment.

Three Cool—On the third card, I layered the stamped layer onto a Soft Succulent piece, then mounted it onto a Cherry Cobbler card base.

Fun Accents—I adorned the bottom of the sentiment layer this time, with larger holly leaves, and added the Red Rhinestones on top of the berries to give them sparkle. The sentiment and berries are stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink to match the card base.

Four Cool—The final card from this set is like the third card, but has a different image for the background stamping. I also stamped a poinsettia flower in Soft Succulent for the accent and used the Red Rhinestones for the flower center. 
You'll have supplies to create all four cards in your Countdown To Christmas card class!
