This suite is perfect to use beyond the Holiday Season and the images from the gorgeous stamp set is perfect to use for other occasions like birthdays, thank-yous, sympathy cards. It can be used for anything really.

I've used the stamp set, dies and some of the embellishments for a Birthday card and a gorgeous gift box. I've wanted to colour in the rose image since I first got my hands on this suite and that is what I've done for you today.

I've given the rose a whole different look by first stamping and embossing it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder on water colour paper. The rose image I've coloured it with an Aqua Painter and Flirty Flamingo Ink.

The Holly berries looked like the Australian Wattle when it's in full bloom in Spring. The bright little 'wattle' flowers just pop right off the card when coloured with Crushed Curry Ink.

Because the big rose image is so bold and has so much going on the card really doesn't need much to accent it. Some Linen Thread, a piece of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon, Gold Glimmer Enamel Dots and some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. So pretty!

I've used nearly all of the same elements on this Kraft Pillow Gift Box. The rose image looks just as amazing die cut and placed on a 3-D item as it does on a card.

Finish the box off with some ribbon and trim and this will be one well received gift box. I know that if someone gave me a gift box decorated like this I would just love it!

I do hope that I've shown you today that this suite can be used to Christmas and beyond and it's not just for the Holiday season.
