I'm still in the Christmas card making mode, so chose the wonderful CCMC sketch. It's pretty rare that I don't use dies and designer paper, so with the sketch in hand, the holiday theme in mind, the SU wreath framelits set, and great papers to choose from I was off and running!
The following are measurements for the cardstock/paper used in this card:
Mossy Meadow mat: 2 7/8" x 4 1/8"
Whisper White panel: 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
DSP: 7/8" x 2 3/4"
Banner: 1 7/8" wide die
The wreath was stamped first with Old Olive, then the fewer leaves stamp with Mossy Meadow. The holly berries were first inked with Versamark, then Real Red before stamping. These were then coated with Clear Embossing Powder and heat embossed to make them shiny.
The wreath was mounted with Adhesive Foam Strips, and a bow made from retired SU red organza ribbon was tied and attached with a Mini Glue Dot.
The Old Olive banner was cut with a framelit die, but since the die is too short to show on the left side of the main panel, I cut a second banner and trimmed it to just peak out.
I originally gave the card a difficulty rating of "3" only because I had to figure out the paper measurements. With these in hand for you, I changed the difficulty to "2" because the card is pretty straightforward.

Such an elegant Christmas card Donna! I love the layers of colour in your wreath and how you've carried that through to your DSP stripes too. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week, Jan :-)
